    Tumbling Blocks pattern

    I know this has been discussed before....I really want to make a tumbling blocks quilt, but I really don't want to do the Y seams. I have found some info on making strips, but I am looking for something that is really explicit in instructions. Can someone give me some helpful information? Maybe with a visual?
    thanks, Terina

    I just drafted a pattern using squares and triangles. I would be glad to share if you PM me.

    Kaye Wood does a method using 60 degree triangles. I have a top finished using this method and still need to work on my bias edge skills, but am pleased with how it turned out.

    Here is a link to the you-tube video;

    Also check out "Not Your Grandmother's Tumbling Blocks". Very good strip-pieced method.

    I vote for the Marci Baker way - I love her ruler and all of the things you can do with it. I found her patterns/books to be very good

    Marci Baker is the author of this book/method. She also has a good tutorial on you-tube. It's all strip pieced.
