    "Not your Grandmothers Tumbling Blocks"

    Just saw a video by Marcie Baker.. "Not Your Grandmothers Tumbling Blocks".

    Wow... looks like it could be fun. If, I could understand and grasp the concept.

    The book is no longer in print and was wondering if any of you might have it? I'd sure like to borrow or purchase a copy.

    Thanks.

    Lynnie, that's where I saw the video. You're right, a picture is worth 10000000000 words.
    Think I'd just do better with something I could read and reference a gazillion times.

    Does this help?

    I think that's something you have to dive in then you will see how it all goes together.
    It looks harder than it is. Use a lot of starch as you will be sewing on the bias.


    Edit: Here's Marcia's book with or without rulers.

    There's a note across the top of the video that says the pattern's in the book "ABC 3D Tumbling Blocks...and More" I just ordered it from Fabric Depot.

    Thanks y'all....

    Just printed out the info from the HGTV web-site. Maybe I can figure this out.
    Today I tried making tumbling blocks the regular way and it's not easy to get all the points to come together neatly. Thinking this other method might work better.

    I'll let you know.

    I printed it off also and the dresden plate. I don't know if I will ever make the tumbling block but I sure want to make the dresden plate quilt, just need to stop printing off so many patterns Ihave more now then I could ever make.

    Jingle, I do the same thing!
    No telling how much printer ink and paper I've used to print patterns. Still, it's fun to know we've got all those options. If I never bought another pattern and tried to use up all the little pieces of fabric I've saved... well, I'd have to live a loooong time.
