    I am a newbe here, and would like to find a pattern for tumbling blocks, now I don't know if there are a lot of them, but a basic would be great!
    I also am a beginner at quilting,and any help from you all will be great. I have the material, but patterns are limited.

    There are some "simplified" versions of the Tumbling Block pattern available where the y-seams are avoided.

    Maybe someone else can help you find those patterns.

    I use the wondercut pattern and ruler to make my tumbling blocks. This way they are all hst and no y seams.

    I had always thought that the tumbling blocks were diamonds cut with 60-120-60-120 degree angles.

    How do you adapt the pattern to make it work?

    it's not the easiest pattern for a newbie.
    what other patterns have you done?
    but we have all been there!
    I didn't know my first pattern was a hard one either!

    It isn't one I made, but it is beautiful.
