Tumbling Blocks - by Philippa Naylor
All the fabric was hand dyed by Philippa, and uses 3040 individual pieces! This has been machine pieced and machine quilted on her domestic machine. The small 3-D blocks were machine pieced into the quilt and appear to be "exploding" out of this fabulous quilt.
I was so lucky to see this quilt "in progress" when I did a 4-day residential course with Philippa last year - and it was wonderful to see how it has finally come to life! her quilting, as always, was simply amazing and the 3-D cubes really did seem to be popping out!
Helen has used a mixture of stitch, piecing, print and dye to create this - I always enjoy seeing Helen's work, and have attended several workshops with her. She is a great tutor, always full of enthusiasm and has boundless energy!
This has been machine pieced and hand quilted. It uses traditional star blocks and a variety of borders, thus doing away with the need for traditional sashing.
