Hi there friends! In the busy-ness of this summer I kinda skipped over my newest pattern - Good Vibes! So let's get acquainted.
Is your glass half-full? These 2 positive blocks: the half-full tumbler and the rolling plus block combine to make this yummy modern quilt pattern! I loved this Fresh as a Daisy Line by Rachel Shelburne for Maywood Studios. It just made me so happy and I wanted to spread the positivity! I would say this quilt pattern is for the confident beginner or intermediate quilter because the tumbler blocks have more piecing and there are 2 blocks. But it really is not too difficult and I give you tips in the pattern (& in an upcoming blog post). If you have any questions, you can always ask them here or email me.
Get the Good Vibes Pattern Here (On Sale through 10/31):
I love versatility in a pattern so recently I made (& finished in time for the actual holiday-woohoo) this version... SPOOKY VIBES! I'm super in love with all of the glow-in-the-dark fabrics from Henry Glass & Co. I even found flannel backing that glows in the dark! Don't you love it?!
SO Cozy & Spooky!
I am also working on this version using the Figs & Shirtings Collection by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co. for Moda. I haven't decided if it will be a fun summer-y throw or some kind of table/pillow set. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the subject in the comments below!
You can see I am also playing with the color values and background choices.
The Good Vibes Pattern includes multiple projects - accent pillow, table topper, throw, twin, and queen size quilts, AND there are fun color arrangement options provided as well.

Now you may be asking - what is a tumbler?
A tumbler is a trapezoid, or four-sided shape where the top is narrower than the bottom. They are fun to fit together by flipping them upside down, but you can also let them stand alone by framing them in different ways or line them up to make their jagged edge a design element. Tumblers are easiest to make using an acrylic template. I purchased mine from Missouri Star Quilt Company to use with charm squares. There are many versions, and I include a paper template with the pattern.
Haven't I released another tumbler pattern?
Why YES - you are so observant!!
This pattern is a sister to the FREE throw pattern - My Cup Runneth Over - that I released last fall.
I also did a sew-along to share all my tumbler cutting and sewing tips.

I have made this lovely coastal version, and also Autumn and Christmas versions. It is very quick and easy!

So there you go friends, a little tumbler quilty insight. I look forward to sharing more patterns using them with you, maybe they will become one of your faves too!
'Til next time - Be blessed!
