“Garden Tumble” Quilt

I don’t know…

This quilt is either the ugliest quilt I’ve ever made OR the funkiest fun quilt.

Bonnie Hunter’s current leader/ender challenge is to make a quilt with the tumbler patch.  And there is something very sweet about traditional one-block scrappy quilts.

I had a 3 1/2 inch thick sturdy template bought years ago AND a lot of the veggie and fruit prints in my stash.  So here’s what evolved.


Someone on Bonnie’s FB site for her fans suggested making a darker “self” border by combining dark blocks.


I like the darkish red binding…

And, here’s the backing:


Here’s a close-up of some blocks:




I quilted with a light fern green thread that’s nice on the back–using Debra D. Geissler’s 11-inch pantograph, “Deb’s Swirls.”

I think “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” with this quilt.  It is funky and fun and just “is what it is.”
