Fast Track

I used the lightest value with the darkest for the pinwheel.  I think this makes it seem to float on top.  My block came out a little crooked. I decided that just made it a little more floaty.  LOL



Ups & Downs

Camille Roskelley

I loved playing with this block.  The 3D effect in the old tumbling block quilts was created by using light, medium and dark values. I think a quilt made with these blocks could be very dramatic.



Vintage Spools

If I made this block again I would choose a wider range of colors.  The dark pink and purple spools appear much closer in color than I expected.  I am telling myself the ripples in this block will “quilt out”.  LOL
