    I'd like to try a Tumbling Blocks but am leary of the set-in blocks so wonder if it might be done with paper piecing. Thanks!

    I just finished a tumbling blocks quilt (posted in pictures) that is a strip pieced quilt. It really is not difficult at all, no inset corners or anything like that. Straight seams all the way!

    I did a quilt with foundation paper piecing all by hand. I enjoyed doing it but it was very time consuming. I bought the paper pieces already cut to size.

    I bought it at a local quilt store. This is the book I used.
