Our last Anaheim class of 2013 had it all… Great friends, great fun and great quilts!
Archive | Nautical Tumble Quilt
Note to my Muckenthaler Students: Our June 18 meeting is at the Anaheim Campus 1830 W. Romneya (Near Euclid) Room 402B Anaheim, Ca. Here’s an additional Nautical Tumble Applique Block (Somehow we only had 12!) This handsome bell could grace the deck of any ship and toll out the long hours on the wide ocean.
The time has finally arrived. Whether you are cutting your Nautical blocks to the Tumbler shape or leaving them whole, it’s time to start assembling your blocks.
My idea for setting these blocks has been to trim them to Tumbler/Thimble shapes and now is the time to do the trimming!
Oh! This has been fun! These blocks have sure been an adventure. Thanks for sailing along with us as we have tumbled through these Nautical blocks. And though this is our 25th and final block, the Tumbler Trimming instructions will go up tomorrow (FINALLY!) and the setting instructions for this beautiful quilt will be up […]
We need some fish in this Nautical Tumble Quilt, don’t you think? So this block has a whole SCHOOL!

This is so much fun! This block allows you to send a coded message to the future at the same time you are giving a glimpse of history!
We are revisiting the Log Cabin quilt genre with our Shipping Lanes Block this week. A few weeks block we did the Hatches of Patches BullsEye Log Cabin Block. Shipping Lanes is just the same… But Totally Different! This Log Cabin has a Fields and Furrows set where every other block is turned 180 degrees. […]
This block is a bit different. Instead of things concerned with a ship, this is the view from the ship. The island is my rendition of Santa Catalina Island… you know, 26 miles across the sea… from the SoCal coast. It may not be a perfect likeness, just my impression of beautiful Catalina!
