Tumbler quilts have long been a part of quilt history. Often these
quilts were made with donated or shared fabrics and were known as Charm
Quilts. This traditional shape has been updated by AccuQuilt with
specially designed corners that make piecing a breeze. The die cut
tumbler shapes align perfectly for nice straight edges on the top and
bottom of each row. Simply add more tumbler shapes to the length or
width to increase the size of your quilt. Ideal for both beginners and
