    Tumbling Blocks (this one's for you, son)

    My son is excellent at solving rubik's cubes. Could not find a rubik's cube fabric so went with this Jinny Beyer tumbling block pattern. This is the 2nd quilt I've made and it gave me a run for my money. Has it's issues and I have a lot to work on, but my son says he loves it. That makes it all worth it!

    Beautiful colors, great work. There's just something about tumbling blocks that makes you want to keep looking at it.

    Very neat! I like the effect of strings of diamond beads running down the quilt.

    It's striking! The colors are great. The depth is great. Did you ever get dizzy while doing this quilt?

    That's a beauty. Your son will treasurer it forever I'm sure.

    Absolutely beautiful colors that suit the pattern so well. And it's so nice that it's considered absolutely perfect by your son and that he is so appreciative.
