several months ago my friends at Nancy’s Notions asked me to create a modern project using one of their many awesome templates. of course, i couldn’t say no!
i saw the Split Tumbler Template in their catalog and fell in love. and since the holidays are right around the corner, I wanted to create a holiday project! introducing the ombre holiday tree mini quilt. isn’t it just the cutest? and guess what? you can make your own!
here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
4- 3/8 yard solid green fabrics
1- 3/8 yard solid red fabric
1- 1/2 yard solid white fabric for border
1- 1/4 yard stripe fabric for binding
1- 20’’ x 22’’ solid fabric for backing
1- 20’’ x 22’’ batting
matching thread for piecing and quilting
misc. sewing supplies
unless otherwise noted, a 1/4’’ seam allowance was used.
here’s the cutting instructions:
follow the Split Tumbler Template instructions for cutting
use the 5’’ square lines on the Split Tumbler Template
cut (2) x 2 1/2’’ x 18’’ white rectangles for the border
cut (2) x 2 1/2’’ x 16 1/4’’ white rectangles for the border
cut (3) x 2 1/2’’ x WOF stripe rectangles for the binding
here’s the piecing instructions:
follow the Split Tumbler Template instructions for piecing
make 4 x light green blocks
make 4 x medium green blocks
make 4 x medium dark blocks
make 4 x dark green blocks
trim each block to 4’’ x 4 1/2’’
sew each column together
sew each row together
sew on each border
here’s how you can finish your mini quilt:
layer quilt top, batting, and backing together
baste as desired
quilt and bind as desired
ta-da, wasn’t that so much fun? and easy too, especially with the Split Tumbler Template!
