tumbler pillow tutorial
I absolutely adore the Bliss line of fabrics by Bonnie and Camille from last year. I bought a heap of charm packs, but no yardage. Not really sure why I did that. I had all the great intentions of making a quilt like this one but then I didn't. I still have a couple more charm packs left so I could buy some Ruby when it comes out and make it using both lines. That'd be sweet.
But anyway, I'm digressing now.
I did, however, make this pillow using the Accuquilt GO! baby cutter using a charm pack and a couple of fat quarters. You can find the tutorial over on the Fat Quarterly blog today. Go see!
Of course, you could still make the pillow if you don't have an Accuquilt GO! baby cutter, here's what you need to make the tumbler shape.
Draw a square measuring 3 1/2"
Now, mark a point 1/2" in on either edge across the top line.
Draw a line that joins the marked point and the bottom left hand corner of the square. And again, a line that joins the marked point on the top right hand side to the bottom right hand corner.
Cut out and either trace onto cardstock or template plastic. Et voila! Now you have a tumbler that is pretty similar to the accuquilt Go! one, so head on over to Fat Quarterly and make your own!
