The photo shows the stacks of pieces that I cut, and a sample of one finished tumbling block.
Now I have lots and lots of sets of three (light, medium, and dark) to be sewn together. I'm doing these blocks by hand, because they are quite easy to do that way, and I need a fair amount of handwork to do in the car (when I'm the passenger!), at someone else's house, etc. So far I have made about 150 tumbling blocks. I started this at least two years ago. I firmly believe if I were to work only on a tumbling block quilt, that I would be finishing it up in a mental ward somewhere. It takes 300 blocks to just make a twin size quilt, for heaven's sake! So I take time off to work on other projects. Now it looks like I will have enough hand work to keep me busy for a bit.
