Loving the Tumbler look, and having just purchased an Accuquilt Go with that die, here is my question.
If I choose to leave the tumblers on the edges as they are, and not cut them off into a straight line, how easy is it then to bind that?
If you are a member of the Bernina yahoo group I asked this there too - as I would really like to use the #88 new binder if possible. If I have to do it by hand I don't mind. But, just wondering if anyone has done a tumbler quilt like that, and how hard was the binding part.
Thanks!

I can't imagine turning all those corners with a binder

There's a Yahoo group dedicated to the accuquilt family, called Accucutquilters, that might have advice. Lots of tumblers there.

I poked around at a blog that I visit, remembering the lady has a Go and has done more than one tumbler. It looks like she just makes the rows out of full-size tumblers then rotary cuts the edges straight sample tumbler quilt with straight edges

Yeah, I'm sure I'll wind up doing that too - cutting the edges. I was hoping to keep the edges true to the shape after piecing, but it might be difficult even by hand.
Thanks for the recommend - I'll join that group for sure!

I have made a few tumbler quilts but I always trim the edges strait, I am very new to quilting and sewing. I wish I knew if it would be possible to bind the tumbler quilt without trimming but haven't been brave enough to try that one yet.

If you figure anything out please post here so we can all find out.

I never found anything else out. There are some brave souls who've done it, but it looked like too much trouble for a lazy quilter like me! Good luck!
