    Found some leftover strips to try out the tube blocks. Had enough to make this top for Project Linus which still needs sandwiching and quilting. When I hung it up to get a better look, discovered that the darker fabric had a print similar to the block itself. Also discovered I'd goofed - 3 squares are turned wrong. Not that noticable so am not going to take it apart and redo.

    A little leftover fabric. Not large enough to make more blocks but needed a border to make it the size I usually make for the Linus quilts. Seems to work.

    Beautiful! I love quilts that have a few blocks that march to different drummers. Sometimes I'll do that with a block on purpose, just for the fun of it.

    I loved it!! It was like an "I Spy" quilt....looking for the 3 blocks
    turned in a different direction. Add that to your quilt info and make a game of it!!!! Everyone will think you did it on purpose!

    Nice work. I'd never have noticed the 3 squares if you hadn't mentioned it. Bet no one else will either.

    Very nice! I doubt if anyone will even notice the blocks that are turned. They add movement. :-D I think everyone that makes quilts for Project Linus and similar programs deserves a :thumbup: !

    I'm gonna' have to check out this tube method. I've some beautiful work usng this method. This quilt is really pretty. The "wrong way" blocks helpd to give it character.

    I have been seeing a lot about tube blocks . Can you tell me why they are called tube blocks? I love your quilt and how personal you made it by changing the direction of the three blocks. lol
