Tend the Earth Tumbler (#7)

Tend the Earth by Deb Strain (Moda) with Kona white and some stray lavender - using 5" tumbler template. 
16 tumblers wide (54') by 17 tumblers rows (73.5") 

By the bolt JoAnn's bleached 100% cotton muslin 60" wide was the inside layer - between a pieced cotton top - and Robert Kaufman's cozy cotton flannel.  A better feel than just with cotton top & flannel back.

Flannel back, muslin and fabric was pre-washed since they were all 1/2 yards to start.
The quilting lines followed the tumbler shape.  Gutterman sew all thread for the top and Isacord 40# 100% polyester white for bottom bobbin worked great with a walking foot.
