I purchased a tumbling blocks top recently. Tumbling blocks is one of my favorite patterns.
It needs a good pressing and some attention to the piecing to clean up the points but I love the fabric. It looks a bit pink in the picture but it is really brown.
It is hand pieced, not the best work but I can live with it
I always find it interesting that the pattern looks different depending on how you look at it. When I look at this picture I see a star
Here I see the blocks
Sometimes it looks like rows of diamonds.
Some of the matching points are pretty good
some of the pieces are a bit puckered
A good pressing will help a lot.
I am making progress on the log cabin hand quilting. I finished one row of cabins and 1/2 of one of the red bands
I am having great fun quilting this one, just making up the pattern as I go
I am using Hobb’s Tuscany Wool batting and it really quilts easily and shows off the quilting
It might be hard to tell but the thread is black YIL cotton, and I am using a #10 Bohin needle
I want to get back to it and finish that red row today!
