    Great results from your week. I love the OBWs, but the book puts them togethers with straight, not Y seams, which are so much easier, I would do them with straight seams. The fabric you've used has some lovely colour ways in. You all got so much done, very rewarding. I would love to have a go at a bargello.

    {/quote} This tumbling blocks pattern is a bunch of fabric tubes WOVEN into the tumbling blocks pattern. You assemble it on a piece of styrofoam. Turning the tubes inside out was tedious and I gave up and didn't make mine reversable like the patterns suggested.

    Holy cow! That's even harder than regular tumbling blocks which I'm too intimidated to try.

    I just finished making some fall centerpieces of large 6 piece octagons. They are so simple if you sew 3 triangles together and then the other 3 and then match the center seam --a nice centerpiece. Trying to figure out how to send the image with the note..someone want to walk me thru it. Is it from a picture file, scanner or camera or what? Sorry I'm new to this ...

    Sure was and I am so grateful for Katrine who mentioned that the blocks could be assembled with straight line sewing. I looked at the book again and she was right! That will really cut down on the aggravation factor of Y seams... AFTER I rip them all apart!

    Hey what fun you had! I love those bargellos and the OBWs especially (glad Katrine sorted you out with the Y seams - hope you don't have to do too much ripping!) Can I be your sister and come next time? :mrgreen: :lol:
