Nancy Zieman Linda Coon Tumbler Quilt First 1It’s a banner day when a Sewing With Nancy viewer sends me a photo of a sewing or quilting project that they’ve made. The image of the Tumbler Flag Quilt caught my attention and I knew you’d like to see it too. It was designed and made by Linda Coon from Louisiana, who caught the quilting bug about five years ago and hasn’t stop quilting. Linda agreed to share her quilting tutorial. But first, let’s me introduce you to Linda.
Nancy: How long have you been quilting?
Linda: I didn’t become a true quilter until five years ago and then became an obsessed quilter about a year ago. My sister was visiting when we saw a quilt in Quilter’s World Magazine called Battle Warfare. We decided we would each make a quilt for an upcoming quilt retreat. A year later, I finished a king-sized version and gave it as a birthday present.
Nancy: Why did you make this patriotic quilt?
Linda: While shopping at my local shop, Bright Hopes Quilting in Mandeville, LA, I learned of their effort to make quilts for the returning National Guard Unit from Slidell. That’s what started my quilting passion!
Nancy: How did you get the idea for the design?
Linda: I thought a great use of fabric scraps would be to cut out tumbling blocks. (The fabrics leftover from my first quilt were used for part of this quilt.) My idea was to create a flag and the rows of tumbling blocks would appear as a true flag, blowing in the wind. It was magic! And the best part was that it was so easy.

Not only was this Tumbler Flag Quilt Linda’s fourth donation to returning soldiers; she has graciously shared the design and the quilting tutorial with all of us!

Tumbler Flag Quilt Tutorial designed by Linda Coon

Nancy Zieman Linda Coon Tumbler Quilt FinishedSupplies, Fabrics, and Notions:

  • Assorted red, off-white, and blue fabrics
  • Chaco Liner Yellow Pen
  • Grandmother’s One Patch Template: Tumbler Block
Grandmother's One Patch Template: Tumbler Block by Nancy Zieman
Note from Nancy: Consider using all the red, white, and blue scraps to bust your fabric stash. I think you’ll be pleased with the color-coordinated, scrappy results.

Cutting Tumblers:

Red: Cut 131 tumblers and 23 finishing pieces from 4-1/2″ crosswise strips, approximately 1-1/2 yards. 
Off-White: Cut 138 tumblers from 4-1/2″ crosswise strips, approximately 1-1/2 yards. 
Navy: Cut 55 tumblers and seven finishing pieces from 4-1/2″ crosswise strips, approximately 5/8 yards.

Tip: For easy figuring of yardage, for all of Clover’s Trace ‘N Create Quilting Templates by Nancy, please see the template package backs. Nancy has included each block size, block quantities and yardage for block quantities.

 

 

  • For each solid fabric tumbler, the cutting directions are the same.
  • Stack several cut strips of fabric.
Nancy Zieman Linda Coon Tumbler Quilt red2
  • Align the template as close to the cut end as possible.
  • Trace along each edge.
  • Flip the template, align the traced edge with the template side, and trace the other side of the Tumbler shape. Repeat the process until the entire fabric strip has been marked.

  • Use a rotary cutter and ruler to cut on each marked line.

  • Trace and cut the Finishing Pieces.
  • Begin by aligning the template area of the Finishing Piece at the narrow end of the strip. Trace along the template area.

  • Flip the template, align the traced edge with the template, and trace the center Tumbler shape. Repeat the process until the entire fabric strip has been marked with half-tumbler shapes.

  • Use a rotary cutter and ruler to cut on each marked line.

  • Create the pieced blue and off-white strips.
  • Use a 1/4″ seam to stitch together the 1-3/4″ wide off-white fabric strip and the 3-1/4″ wide navy fabric strip.
  • Press the seam allowance towards the navy blue fabric.

  • Cut 36 tumblers from 4-1/2″ strata strips.
Nancy Zieman Linda Coon Tumbler Quilt blue2Note From Nancy: For the red and white fabrics, simply rotate the tumbler template 180° to nest the shapes next to each other.
For the pieced strip, in order to keep the white at the top of the tumbler shape, cut pieces in the same direction. Always place the widest part of the template along the blue fabric strip. There will be a slight waste of fabric.

  • Use a rotary cutter and ruler to cut on each marked line.

    This foundation provides a free homey environment for families of our injured vets being cared for at major military and VA medical centers throughout the US.
    FHF also operates the Hero Miles and Hotels for Heroes programs, utilizing donated frequent flyer miles and hotel points. All of these allow family members to be at the bedside of their wounded or ill soldier or veteran.
    The Foundation also manages other military grant programs and scholarship funds for military spouses and children of our fallen and disabled veterans.

    I work with a group of young adults with autism. They manage a business called Aspergraphics. They research, sew and market items they make. Most of these adults are unemployed so the profit goes to assist them in being independent.

    Throughout the years, I have made craft items, pillowcases, dresses, scarves, donated fabric, etc., for many charities associated with American Sewing Guild and local churches, but as a veteran of the U.S. Army, I am in the process of making quilts to donate to local veteran organizations.

    Project Linus is my favorite charity but there are many, many in need of quilts, Wounded Warrior, Quilts of Valor, Az Blankets4Kids, TAPS Ugly Quilts, and many more. I also donate to others who might need a quilt but for one reason or another might not have received one. When I am making a charity quilt I think of the recipient. Remember to do your best but remember they will not be judging your quilt-just loving it!

    I make quilts and donate fabric to Snuggled In Hope, a group that provides over 400 quilts a year to Flying Horse Farm, a Camp for kids with special needs. Each cot sized quilt can be taken home by the camper. Each child is recommended by their doctor. Some of the doctors attend camp and dress as the kids dictate. Great for them to see the doctors in shorts and funny shirts!

    I’ve been very lax in giving to those outside of my family…many kudos to those generous people who have already responded! I’m planning to make patriotic pillowcases for vets and the tumbler flag to donate to the Gary Sinise Foundation for special homes for vets..all in memory of my late father who served in the Navy and Air Force during WWII. This flag pattern is a great inspiration…thank you!

    I am very much involved with Quilts of Valor. I facilitate and teach quilting to a group of 23 ladies and am ALWAYS looking for new patterns for them to use with quilts for our veterans. This year, we have already awarded 21 quilts to veterans – many of them WWII vets. I would love to be able to have the template to use in a future QOV – I have my template and will this weekend start a Patriotic Tumbler Quilt. Thanks to you and Ms Coon for this nifty design!!

    I donate money and have made one small wall hanging to the Wounded Warrior Project. I plan on donating a quilt, also, and have started on it. They have made a long-term commitment to returning injured veterans. They will help them and their family with whatever they need. It is an awesome project.

    I donate quilts to my local guild , which supplies the local hospitals with quilts for all the preemies born in the hospitals.

    We also donate to first responders. Being taken from your parents or watching your house burn down is so traumatic for children and we hope offering a quilt or stuffed toy they can hug or hold onto and call their own helps in some small way.

    SOmehow my first post didn’t go through. I would love the chance to win the template to use in a Quilts of Valor. I facilitate and teach a group of 23 ladies in a group here in Tennessee. I am always looking for new and exciting patterns to teach them and would love to use the template for that purpose. I would love to start through my QOV stash (I have two stashes – one for me and one for the QOV quilts I do). To date we have awarded 20 quilts – many to WWII veterans. Thank you Nancy and Ms Coon for a neat pattern that looks like fun!!

    Our quilt guild selects a different charity each year. This year we
    are giving to hospice. As a hospice patient my Mother so enjoyed
    the afternoon of hair and nail care. She glowed afterwards. I hope
    To give back to someone else, to give them joy, as they go through
    This most difficult of times. The tumbler template could be used to
    Make a lovely, comforting quilt for someone facing their final days
    On earth.

Each of us contribute embroidered block sets, filler blocks, quilt block sets, or whatever our talents allow us to contribute. Some of the members piece the quilt tops and others quilt the tops. Yes, we have pieces of quilts traveling all over the country. It is a great group, who also make pillowcases and other items to donate when the need arises. We usually have several projects going at any time. Something for everyone. All are welcome.

    My favorite charity is one that my whole quilt guild donates to. It is a kids camp for kids who are in Foster care and once a year they get to go to this kids camp for 2 weeks and each child receives one of the quilts we have donated!! It’s so awesome!! These kids sometimes don’t have anything to call their own but they get to have this quilt and the matching pillow case!
    I would love to make this flag quilt in miniature size!!!

    Not really considering myself a quilter (and so far behind on projects for myself & famly) I haven’t made a donation quilt yet. When I do, it will likely be for Project Linus; but I might look around a bit at other charities first (Special Olympics comes to mind). This such a beautiful quilt! I love the Tumbler anyway. Thank you so very much for sharing how to make this quilt, Linda!

    I have donated 3 queen sized quilts so far, to Mt. Olive Christian School, who in turn, auction them and use the proceeds for needy local families and a missionary in Central America. I worked in collaboration with my sister, Patricia, and we are proud to say the quilts auctioned for a lot more money than we had expected. It makes me feel warm and cozy inside, as if I were wrapped in one of our quilts.

    I recently participated in a Project Linus event. The lead for Project Linus talked about the families that have been helped by blankets and quilts. She talked as everyone worked. It was a very creative group. I think everyone felt good about the families that were going to benefit from the things they helped to make. My favorite charity is Project Linus.

    My quilt guild here in Fort Worth, TX makes baby quilts for our community hospital. A quilt is given when the mama stays drug free throughout her pregnancy. We also make 15″ flannel-backed resolution quilts to be used by the hospital chaplain for showing the parents their child who did not survive birth. The quilt is sent home so they have something real to help them remember their baby. This is the charity I support.

    naming “a” (meaning ONE) favorite quilt-donation place is too difficult! But my three current favorites are: Hope Prayers & Squares Ministry (patchwork quilts are actually tied; strings are knotted after each prayer for the ill recipient), Quilts of Valor (for veterans) and Quilts For Kids Inc (for children with medical issues).

    I haven’t made a lot of quilts yet but most of my quilt work has been done for Quilts of Valor. It helps me to learn quilting and piecing and it’s for a good cause.

    My quilt guild makes Quilts of Valor from block patterns I provide them with. It is such a worth while cause. I love your tutorial and would love to win your template.

    My passion is animals. I make quilts for our local Humane Society for the animals to be able to lie on something softer then the cement floor. And hopefully, it will keep them a little warmer in the winter.

    I have been helping our quilt guild’s charity group make quilts since I first started quilting in 2001. We have donated to cancer chemo patients and a children’s ward in a local hospital. For the past several years we make quilts for the children in a local home for children who’s families cannot take care of them. When the children leave to be reunited with their family, they take the quilt with them, so the home is in constant need of quilts.

    I have been quilting lap robes for our nursing home and baby quilts for our local crisis pregnancy center and a boutique that new moms can earn points for well baby care and use them in the boutique to “purchase” baby related items. I am just now starting to make quilts of valor for three service men in my family. Thanks for the opportunity to join in this drawing. Carolyn

    I read the quilt measures 45″ x 50″ but I need it to be a single bed size which would be like at least 53″ x 78″ how many pieces would I need? Or how can I figure it out? This would actually be my first quilt so I don’t really understand how to configure. I would be grateful for any help.
