Lantern Festival Tumbler (#3)

 Tumbler quilt in Lantern Festival by Benartex, mixed with Curiosities by Nancy Holverson, Kate Spain (purple) & Moda Marble Swirls in robin egg blue.  (a quick scrapy quilt made for a little girl who loves Mulan)
Plastic tumbler template from the Missouri Star Quilt Company for 5" pre-cuts (charms). Tutorial here.



If using a directional fabric you have to lay out your un-cut squares first - and then cut them using the template to match them to the previous row.  Wide on top goes with wide on the bottom.
Quilted only with Robert Kaufman lilac flannel on the back with zigzag stitch, Gutermann all sew thread.
46" x 51"
