Thank you SO much in advance!! My dad is wanting to sew this patten for his 1st ever quilt he wants to make, but I have NO clue how to begin...
don't be scared.......try this one(it is a paper pieced version, & it includes templates):
or maybe this one:
good luck with your project
there's a good video from Marci Baker of Alicia's Attic on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWpSETMbws4
Same one mentioned by Gay, above.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWpSETMbws4
I love Marci Baker's "Not Your Grandmother's..." series. She takes traditional blocks and updates them to easier techniques. Her tumbling blocks pattern is made by strip piecing and no Y seams.
