Tumbling Blocks with no Y seams

Our guild had a workshop yesterday after our meeting. We learned how to make the blocks shown in this photo. Tumbling blocks with no Y seamsThese 8 blocks have not been sewn together yet - I want to wait on that until I have made more of them. It has been challenging to find fabrics that blend together and ones that have 3 in light, medium and dark values in each color. The pattern calls for making a quilt that is about 47" x 58," so I have 56 more blocks to add to these 8. The setting triangles would only be at top and bottom of the design. I probably won't be adding more to these until after Christmas since it seems that I keep on adding project to my list of things to finish by then!

This is the first time I've seen the triangles for this block and how clever and easier to assemble.

I love it! You will have to tell me how you do them, exactly. I hate Y seams. Love your colors, can't wait to see more.

Wow, those came out great! Is there a pattern out on the web somewhere on how to do them with no Y seams? I'd love to do one, but it looks way too complicated!

You know, I've seen this done several times and in person it makes sense. Yet I look at yours and still can't for the life of me figure it out!!

These are very cool! I bet it would be tough to find the colors for each block! Good luck!
