    Tube piecing blocks...

    I was having one of those days today where nothing I was working on was going right....Tried working on pinwheel blocks and kept messing them up... wasted a bit of fabric because my hand kept making my rotary cutter go away from the ruler and then after I took a break from everything for a while I decided I would watch the tube piecing tutorial again and try my hand at that.... I love it!!! Granted I pieced the blocks together not the way I was planning but they still turned out pretty cute I think...

        OH Rikki, you did that fine, you did that fine you blew my mind, hey Rikki, hey, hey, hey, Rikki!!! *snort* LOL! Sorry, couldn't resist! LOVE it and love tube quilting, too. Like you, sometimes I just have to walk away from a project and work on another or go outside and do something w/the horses, etc., and when I come back, VIOLA! I can quilt again! LOL!

        Thanks for sharing, can't wait to see it when it's done!

            rikkiwha love it. I'm working on a star pattern right now using the tube pieceing. This is the third or fourth quilt I've done using that method. I love it and yes you do have to concentrate sometimes. Great job. Would like to see final pictures when done.

                  Well, you've got me all interested in trying this now. How fun is that? I think I need to buy a jelly roll. It seems that you could come up with all kinds of possibilities!

                      They are gorgeous Rikki! I went to a quilting class a few weeks ago, and we did bargello quilts, using a tube piecing method. It really turned out neat I thought. It was a lot of fun to do, and gives a whole new twist to tube piecing. This is the bargello quilt wallhanging I did. I still have to put the back and batting on it, and then quilt it, but finidng the time to do that is a bit of a problem at the moment. LOL!!! I'm gonna have to check out those new tutorials.

                            LOVE that ! It's so bright and pretty ! I don't know much about that method, except for watching the tutorial but I like it alot ! How did you do that ? Just cute the tube straight instead of at an angle ?
