Although I don't really think of myself as a beginner, I thought it would be fun to participate:
I decided it would be a chance to make a tumbler quilt - might as well start small and see how it goes. I had cut a lot of these small tumblers right after I got the die for my AccuQuilt. I used a lot of vintage fabric scraps that I had on hand. I think my 2 favorites are on the left in the photo above - the second fabric from the bottom left hand corner - it's purple with the blue and green flowers, and also the one directly above it.
I'll be sure and show a picture when it's finished!
