This is another of those odd patterns that in reality doesn't really make a block, although it certainly COULD, with the addition of triangles at the edges, as I have shown here, just so I could draw it square... :o)

** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **

Print off the template (s) provided, then transfer them to your favorite template material, add 1/4" all around, and begin to cut tumblers from any variety of fabrics. This makes a WONDERFUL charm quilt, if done is all different repeats!

Begin sewing your tumblers together, right sides together along the side edges, using 1/4" seams. This template makes tumblers 3" across at the bottom, 1-1/2" across at the top, and 3" tall. Using that as a rough guide, you can decide how many you would like per row to make the size quilt you desire...

Piece the rows, again using 1/4" seams...

That's all there is to it!

I show this quilt only to give you an idea of how scrappy it will look. The measurements of a real quilt with as few pieces as this one has(272) would be about 39" wide by 48" long. Here, you see it with binding added to the sloped edges...

Happy Quilting Folks!!
