    No sew Tumbling Block pattern.

    Ok, the demo looked super easy. I ran to my sewing room and ironed some jellyroll strips in half. I marked the lines. My sample looked nothing like the demo. I ordered the book.

    Recently I saw Georgia Bonesteel do the weaving on one of her quilt shows- lap quilting episode 1205 Her signature red, white and blue tumbling blocks is the weaving.

    very interesting techniques which I wouldn't mind trying but all her "ums" were like fingernails on the chalkboard to this educator~

    Really cool - it does look like there will be raw edges on the top of the quilt, but maybe I just misunderstood. Will have to look for this at LQS and investigate further. Thanks for sharing this new technique.

    I have been interested in the blocks for a while and I like this technique. I ordered the book even though one of the reviews was bad the rest were positive.

    I love this idea. Please keep us up to date on your thoughts about the book and any progress you make with it. Tumbling blocks is on my bucket list but it scares me silly to try it with diamonds and y seams.

    This is a dream come true for me. I love all those angles but am terrible at lining up angles/corner,etc.

    I couldn't keep my strips in place to weave and I couldn't figure out by folding the strips in half, I still had a raw edge. I'll post more when the book arrives. It is suppose to be here tomorrow as it was sent second day shipping.

    Her demo she was using raw edge pieces but her finished ones looked to have the edges turned under. Seems like an awful lot of pressing. Easier to sew Y seams.

    Might be easier to make fabric tubes and weave them, no raw edges that way. Will check back after you have had a chance to read your book. LOL How much was the book?

    Thanks for sharing. Post a picture of what you make using this method. I'm also wondering about the raw edges on the top of the quilt

    The book isn't all that great, it reminded me of the quilt books from the late 70's and early 80's. I would have never bought it if I hadn't seen the demo. But the weaving instructions are detailed. The strips are folded and pressed to the middle making no raw edges. The strips are pinned and weaved on fusible interfacing. I have a weave for a large size throw pillow started. It's easy to do.

    The strips could be pressed using the largest bias tape makers. To me, the biggest draw-back is that it's all doubled fabric, therefore heavier than regular piecing.

    BellaBoo i have a questions, how many strips across do you need to make to start and do they need to be at an angle at bottom to get the tumbling block look. i notice that she pins each strips top and bottom to hold during weaving can you just glue top and bottom instead of pining

    Odd the book doesn't have any pictures of the bigger block quilts shown on the video. The pattern for the tiny weave that fits the quilt shown is the only pattern. For that she used 13 1 1/4" wide strips (before folding) for the base. The sample weave I'm making I'm pinning the strips to covered board with fusible attached. Then I'll square up the sample and fuse together.
