    I was looking yesterday for a tumbling block pattern and all I could find was one with Y seams. This one looks so much easier. Thank you for posting this method.

    This is definately one to try. I think I may stop and buy some fabric on my way home from work!

    I love it! I've done a TB and it was agonizing. This should be much better. Thanks

    Big hugs for posting this. I have been interested in making one of these but it always looked way to complicated for me. This seems to make it so much simpler. It's officially on THE list of to do's.

    I cant thankyou enough. I wanted to make this quilt but the Y seams scared me away. Now I can give it a try.

    How do you figure out what you need for something bigger than "crib" and smaller than "humongous" (I assume the finished one on the tute is a king size but WHAT size king size)? This is a big problem for me -- seeing something I like but not being able to translate to different sizes. I got a gadget called a "Quilter's Assistant Proportional Scale" but it doesn't help for something like this.

    I personally have no problem with Y seams, but I have to try this method! It surely looks simple enough. Thanks for posting!
