Patchwork - tumbling blocks


Jane sent me this picture of her diamond patchwork mat.
I must admit I hadn't fully explored the extent of how this pattern could be used.
Thanks for letting me share this, Jane.  I MUST make time to have a go at it again myself now I've seen yours.

  3. Very nicely done. If you look at it in a certain way you can see a 3d cube.

  8. I'm so happy that I'm not the only one confused. How many Janes are there? Have you completely split from the 3rd brain cell and it now resides as a separate identity? I really like the color combination in JANE'S mat.

  9. Sorry it's taken so loooong to get back to the comments but we were travelling and then trying to get connections via our portable 'devices'!!!
    The Jane who did the tumbling blocks is Jane McLellan. She also showed this idea too http://janeeborall.blogspot.com/2008/05/butterfly-edging.html

  10. Thanks for comments all, wish I was an off-shoot of Jane E! I was so excited about doing the pattern, wanting to see if I could get the 3-D effect, that I kept making mistakes, so don't examine it too closely. Jane Mac

  11. Jane did a great job, it comes to life in her thread colours.

  12. Wonderful optical illusion! This would be an interesting piece to use to inspire youngsters to take up the shuttle!

  13. The thread was sent to me from Singapore by my sister-in-law. It's size 40. I asked her to send me black but she sent a whole bunch of other colours too.

  14. Jane Mac did a lovely job. I've often looked at this pattern of Jane E's and thought it was lovely, it is on my list of must tries.

    Thank you Jane for showing us Jane Mac's work. Beautiful, just beautiful.
