    Thanks all for your kind words... I think the tumbling block pattern is one my favorites..

    I was seriously thinking about doing it queen size it but I have changed my mind... I want it for in the living room to use as a throw.. So the finished size will be 60x80 inches..

    I have to admit to everyone the way I do my blocks makes it easy.. No problems with seams and it sews fast... I do not go by directions found in any book... :lol:

    I just lay three diamonds on their side and use the play on colors to make the blocks.. If anyone is seriously interested I can take a pic of the steps... It is really easy to do... :wink:

    Diamonds, What a fantastic quilt. I love tumbling blocks, but have been afraid to try it. You inspire me. And blue is my favorite color. :D I think I'll go take a peek at my blue stash......... Keep up the great work.

    This a one great quilt. I have always wanted to do this pattern but it seems like it would be difficult. Hope you will be able to give us the directions. Thanks for posting the quilt.
