    Here are two more pictures of my quilt that I started (hand-pieced) in Oct 2009. It is going to be for a full-size bed.

    I just love tumbling blocks. Yours are great. Some day when I grow up, maybe I'll try them.

    No, it's not hard. The key is to get the points to line up. I'm using Jenny Beyer's Perfect Piecer and it's been the key to my success, I believe.

    I started on a tumbling blk just learning how to quilt and the colors that I had chose well I'll put it this way it makes me dizzy looking at it so it is one of those UFO's. I had to sew mine by machine because of my eyes. You are doing very well on yours I like it.

    That is just fabulous! Tumbling blocks is probably my favorite traditional quilt pattern. Yours is a ton of fun to look at!

    I admire your patience for all that hand piecing. I love the colorful prints.

    This is beautiful - I love your fabric placement, you've really done justice to the 3D effect. :D I've done a small wall hanging of this and I pieced over papers (figuring that was the only way I'd keep the points in order!)- are you hand piecing the conventional way, ie drawing a sewing line around a template? Your points are perfect! :-D

    I am cutting out my pieces with a rotary cutter then using my Perfect Piecer to make my sewing lines. I have (I hope) all the diamonds I'll need already cut out and sitting in a Ziploc bag. Thanks everyone for all the compliments. I'll continue to post pictures as I progress.
