As promised, sampler block number 6, Tumbling Blocks.

I used the diamond method of making a tumbling blocks quilt (as opposed to the triangle or star method) to cut and sew my block pieces together.  I found the diamonds fairly easy to work with, especially as I was hand piecing them and could ease the fiddly middle bits together fairly easily.

There was A LOT of quilting on this block, and I have perpetually been a tiny stitch hand quilter.  I love the look of bigger stitches, so each block I’ve been working on making them so.  I definitely didn’t succeed on this one though, especially those outside edges where they ended up being TINY.
