Progress and my Inspiration for the Squat Tumbler Quilt

Just a quick post to let you all know I have been madly sewing at every opportunity and I have lots of new things that I am preparing for the new year. I am also doing my little squat tumbler quilt in between everything else.

When I was in The Netherlands on my trip in March I met a lady who runs a fabulous blog called Supergoof and she makes the most beautiful quilts. She makes all kinds of quilts by hand and inspires hundreds of Quilters all over the world. I did do a blog post at the time and showed everyone some quilts she had showed me on the day.

For some real eye candy go to her blog www.supergoof-quilts.blogspot.com.
Unfortunately her old blog has been lost but I think she is re writing some old posts.

One of her quilts is a squat tumbler quilt or a thimble quilt and I believe she may have just finished it. She was my inspiration for this quilt.
I did see a pattern for it in an old European magazine or maybe it was a book for small quilts recentlyOn my return trip to Europe this year I was asked if I was able to make a template for cutting the fabric.

So of course I was able to do that. Because of that I now know there was no excuse not to make one for myself. Just what I need another little something to do. It will be in between all my other stuff of course.

While in Belgium in September I had the opportunity to see some of these quilts made in different colours.
