patchwork quilt free tutorial

Hello fabric friends. I'm Amy Smart and I like to share my quilt-making/fabric-hoarding adventures at my blog, Diary of a Quilter. Today I am going to share a tutorial for creating a simple variation on a traditional patchwork quilt, using a shape traditionally called "tumblers".

There are two things you should know about me 1) I ALWAYS have a pair of sunglasses with me, I can't drive without them, the sun hurts my eyes.   2) My purse is a MESS.   All  of the sunglass cases I had before were to heavy so I didn't carry them around with me.  I made this simple case to be lightweight enough to not weigh me down ... ...read more
