My sister is a first grade teacher and the school she teaches at needs a new playground. They put on a great fundraiser where they raised almost $10,000 for new playground equipment. She asked me if I'd be willing to make and donate a quilt for the cause. And who doesn't love a good cause!
My dear sister had given me the tumbler block AccuQuilt die for Christmas, and it seemed like a great time to try it out - I don't mind cutting fabric strips, but cutting shapes with a rotary cutter and mat always makes me dread the process of making a quilt! Worked like a charm! I used the entire line of Momo's "It's a Hoot" - all 37 fat quarters in this quilt.
As you can see from the little blue marker spots, the quilt was unfinished and unwashed in these photos.
I love the way it turned out. And I hear it went to a good home!
