    We have a group of ladies here in Central Oregon that met through this board. We get together once a month. This was the project for our last meeting. One of the ladies taught us how to make these "Not Your Grandmother's Tumbling Blocks". She was an excellant teacher. Here is my version. I don't have a 4th of July tablerunner so this is now on my table.
    The colors are a little washed out. Sorry.

    Are they made with Y seams or strips?

    I've not done this pattern, but it looks like strips would work if you split the light diamond into two triangles....

    No Y seams, all strip piecing. You do need a 60 degree ruller.
    That is the hardest part. Making sure you are using the right lines on the ruler.

    Very cool! I have always loved this pattern but always turned away because of Y seams. Glad to learn there is a method using strips. Would you consider doing a tutorial?

    It is one of those copyright things. The pattern is call "Not Your Grandmother's Tumbling Blocks". You can find it with an internet search. Besides I am not good enough at it to do a tutorial. Sorry.
