    I tried it today, and it was AWESOME! I LOVE how moving the blocks around gives so many options!
    I haven't sewn mine together, yet. I don't know which way I want to sew them. I don't know if I want two blocks out of these or one larger one...
    I have to play with them some more to find out!
    I thought some would enjoy seeing some of the variations...

    Thanks for showing different ways to use these blocks. I have a table runner I did with 3 tube blocks that is waiting to be sandwiched and quilted. It sure it fun, isn't it! And FAST! :thumbup:

    The first pic in my second post, the one with all the solid print in the center...I'm thinking these would be just perfect to sew together then add an embroidery design IF the extra bulk from the seams wouldn't cause problems with the embroidery machine.

    Your blocks are great and so many placement options.

    I just love all the pics of tube stuff and still haven't been able to access the video. I'm going to my daughters tomorrow (she has broadband) and I will watch it there!

    You're welcome. I thought it would be helpful to see some of things that can be done with this. I love looking at all the others to see what they've done. Did you post a pic of your's?
    Yes, it's very FAST, and the blocks seem to be accurate, so far! Or, in other words, it was easy for me to make them accurate!

    I bet, if done on a smaller scale, that you could make some great borders with that technique.
