    I tried it today, and it was AWESOME! I LOVE how moving the blocks around gives so many options!
    I haven't sewn mine together, yet. I don't know which way I want to sew them. I don't know if I want two blocks out of these or one larger one...
    I have to play with them some more to find out!
    I thought some would enjoy seeing some of the variations...

    Thanks for showing different ways to use these blocks. I have a table runner I did with 3 tube blocks that is waiting to be sandwiched and quilted. It sure it fun, isn't it! And FAST! :thumbup:

    The first pic in my second post, the one with all the solid print in the center...I'm thinking these would be just perfect to sew together then add an embroidery design IF the extra bulk from the seams wouldn't cause problems with the embroidery machine.

    Your blocks are great and so many placement options.

    I just love all the pics of tube stuff and still haven't been able to access the video. I'm going to my daughters tomorrow (she has broadband) and I will watch it there!

    You're welcome. I thought it would be helpful to see some of things that can be done with this. I love looking at all the others to see what they've done. Did you post a pic of your's?
    Yes, it's very FAST, and the blocks seem to be accurate, so far! Or, in other words, it was easy for me to make them accurate!

    I bet, if done on a smaller scale, that you could make some great borders with that technique.

    That is so cool. I can't believe how moving them around can change them so much.

    That is great, all those different looks just by moving the blocks around. Thanks for taking the time to share them. That's the most interesting part of quilting, to me, so I really enjoy seeing the options.

    Okay thats it. I have to try this tube quilting. I love your pictures.
    So many possibilities. Thats kind of like that hidden 9 patch when you cut them in 1/2 and make all different blocks with them.
    great stuff

    WOW! What a neat way to get those ripple colors!
    I had never even considered that ...
    I am so grateful that there are curious minds on the Quilting Board who go one step beyond and share what they find as they look for MORE than just the basics. SALUTE!

    Thanks to everyone for all of your kind words.

    The reason I wanted to post this was to encourage anyone who hasn't tried this technique, yet, to go try it! And to play with the designs. I don't have more of the fabric I used for other blocks, but what's playing in my mind is how neat it would be to make another tube, for a total of 4 blocks or 16 squares and try switching that around!

    When I first heard "tube quilting", I thought hmmm...funny name. I was curious and had a few minutes to go check it out. I was so amazed. I guess you'd say I'm still on beginner level, but I found this so easy!

    For anyone that hasn't seen the other posts about Tube Quilting or can't find the link:

    http://blog.missouriquiltco.com/2009...tally-tubular/

    It is the second video down.
    Someone also posted the instructions on here for those who have dial up and can't view the video.

    Just do a "tube quilting" search on here, and you will find many more posts.
