What are you most proud of? This tumbling block quilt is made without Y seams, and uses normal quilting tools. The blocks are strip priced and rotary cut. No special templates needed, no paper piecing, no cutting out little diamonds. I love taking a traditionally difficult technique and finding a simpler way to make it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Fabric choice is crucial to get the 3-D effect. You need light fabrics and medium fabrics. If you can't decide if a fabric is a light or a medium, then put it back in your stash. It doesn't have enough contrast to get the right effect.
