Tumbling Blocks quilt – it’s a big one!

Tumbling Blocks quilt – it’s a big one!

This is a big one, much bigger than my hanging space for pictures!

I was very honored that Diane wanted me to quilt this for her.  She spent 2 1/2 years assembling this quilt with lots and lots of “Y” seams!  She wanted the quilting to accent the blocks and stabilize the “Y”seams.  I suggested a continuous curve throughout the blocks and  some ghosted blocks on the edges for interest.

I love this quilt!  It was hard to decide what pictures to post, I took so many.

The thread matched the background fabric perfectly and the small meander frames the tumbling blocks.

As awesome as the front is, the back shows a great secondary pattern, not visible from the front.

The continuous curves mimics another block called Cathedral Windows, which Diane considered making instead of the tumbling block.

The optical illusions are awesome with this quilt.

Thanks for looking!  🙂 Linda
