    I am looking for an old pattern called, It's Not Your Grandmothers Tumbling Blocks. There is a video on YouTube that shows the strip piecing and cutting methods but the details are not quite exact enough for me to follow. Anyone have a copy they would be willing to part with?? My LQS is looking for it too but it has been almost a month with no luck on the secondary market.

    Thanks for any help!

    This is one of my favorites. VERY easy, and without those set in angles.

    If you go back to the YouTube video and read the comment section below, it sounds like they are getting ready to re-release this pattern this fall.....I can't wait as this has been a pattern I've wanted to do for years but NOT with all those set in triangles!! I can strip ( piece ) with the best of em :lol: :lol:

    I believe Marci Baker's book is out of print, but here's the instructions from her HGTV guest appearance http://www.hgtv.com/decorating/tumbl...cks/index.html and a link to her website. http://aliciasattic.com/

    Wow that was a great tut. I then watched one on cathedral windows.
    I may have to add that one to my to-do list. Thanks and I'll be looking for her book this fall.
    Thanks, D
