Tumbling Quilt Blocks Made Easy

 

Tumbling quilt blocks with the 3-D illusion catches your eye and the interest of other quilters.

What used to be a challenge with set in seams, is now EASY with strips and a triangle ruler.

The key to making this quilt is in selecting the right fabrics.

It is very important that your tones of fabric have high contrast.

You will need a dark tone a mid tone and a light tone. Dark creates the illusion of a shadow, medium partial shadow, and light tone full light.

Solids, blenders batiks and prints  can all be used as long as the overall tones are high contrasting.

    Thank You. I have always wanted to make a Tumbling Block quilt. I will have to try one after I finish the quilt I am working on now.

    Since I don’t have a sewing machine nor the wherewithal to produce a quilt, I have used this quilt photo to make three separate Glass Fusion projects and intend to do one or two more. They turned out beautifully but nowhere near as beautiful as this quilt.
