Tumbling blocks

Here are some pictures relating to the Tumbling Blocks quilt that I am hand piecing at the moment.
I start by putting 3 diamonds together into a hexagon block first , then I start joining them to the main strip.
Here is a new little stack of Hexagons ready to join the rest.

This second pic is of the little pincushion that I have in my sewing box. I make one for every new project that I have on the go. It is only 1" square , perfect for when I am hand piecing. I then keep it in the box with the project, that way I have the needle and pins needed for that project on hand without having to go looking through all my boxes.
