Gypsy Caravan Tumbler (#24)

 A beautiful chic quilt featuring Amy Butler's Gypsy Caravan, cut with the large Accuquilt tumbler die.  12 tumblers across by 12 rows down with a 3" border on the sides in matching periwinkle.  

  Binding in periwinkle and backed with vanilla dimple dot minky.  The middle layer is JoAnn's bleached muslin, prewashed and all layers spray basted.  I usually pin and spray baste - but had success with spray basting only and ironing the layers together, pressing on the cotton top portion and totally avoiding the minkey - it melts!
Quilting was a smaller broken zig zag going across the rows and following the tumbler shapes from top to bottom.
I used Aurifil beige 50 wt. for both the top and bottom with a No. 12 universal needle and it was smooth  and consistent. 
Size: 57 x 71"
