    Welcome to the board! Those "y" seams can be tricky for a new (and experienced quilters as well!) so I suggest using a pattern for no "y" seams. Here is a link to a pdf pattern on how to do it or you can just google no y seam tumbling blocks. http://www.myquiltfabric.com/pdf/Tumbling_Blocks.pdf

    Welcome from NJ! I was relatively new to quilting when I did a tumbling block quilt as well. I used the english paper piecing method. Found it quite easy and was nice and portable as well! Sorry no links for you but if you do a search for that method and/or quilt pattern I'm sure there will be a zillion hits for you to pick from! Good luck. Love tumbling blocks!

    Welcome from another NorCal-er! I'm new to quilting too and struggling with my first quilt using super-soft flannel. Lint is everywhere. Good luck with your tumbling blocks!

    Just wanted to say Welcome from NJ. I'm just getting back into quilting so I'm pretty new myself, just finished my first quilt top.
