    There is also a "Not your Grandmother's tumbling blocks (and Flower Garden)." Done by strip piecing and cutting into triangles that make diamonds.

    Very nice accident. If you don't tell anyone, they will never know you didn't use a design wall and many hours moving everything around to get your final quilt. I've always wanted to do one; I didn't want the seam in the block and the difficulty inherent using the traditional method has always scared me off. Beautiful work. Congratulations. Joyce in DE

    really pretty, both of them! Congrats on being chosen for "quilt of the week"! I've always liked the tumbling blocks, will get brave enough to try one some day. I'll wait til I find an easy free pattern! Never buy patterns, tooo many freebies available!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
