Old Habits.

 I tried to throw out the scraps left from using the Tumbler Die to use up some of my fabrics and make more donation quilts. I really did try, I promise!! But old habits were stronger and I did fish out the fabrics which were left over from the triangular sides and pieced them into more fabric which meant I could cut more Tumbler shapes.
I am joining them with alternate plain cream fabric and it will be a very low-cost quilt to donate as, apart from the cream fabric, it will be made entirely from scraps. You can't beat that so I guess some old habits are worth holding on to.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Definitely agree - use up every scrap! The strippy tumbler blocks look great alternating with the cream tumblers.
