    I'm very impressed!

    For the tumbling blocks, how did you cut out the pieces? Did you use a template, paper piece, what? And what instructions/pattern are you using?

    Tumbling blocks always blow me away. I just love the 3D effect. That will be a great quilt.

    Both quilts came out beautiful! You should be proud of your first quilt and the tumbling blocks look great. Love the colors.

    To Lisanne (and everyone),
    I started using a template, copied from The Quilter's Guide to Rotary Cutting that I got from my library. But then I learned exactly how to cut these diamonds using a rotary ruler & cutter. The diamonds are 2 1/4 inches - which includes 1/4-inch seam allowances. The instructions weren't very clear how to cut out the diamonds from the book (I probably wasn't reading it closely enough) but I found great directions online. Maybe my next quilt will be a striking 2-color quilt.
