Then I found a tool at Missouri Star Quilt Company that is a template for making tumbler blocks on charm packs. It seemed ideal for a newbie like me, so I ordered one immediately! (Well, when they were back in stock because these suckers are popular!).
I finally got to use my template when I started Tumbling Jungle using Bungle Jungle by Tim and Beck to make a baby quilt for our neighbours who are expected their fourth boy any day now.
Here are the pictures of Tumbling Jungle, all finished! (Warning: Despite being the end of April, the wind was cold and strong and there is actual snow on the ground. I am NOT happy with Mother Nature. Or that stupid lying groundhog).

|Here you can see the wiggly line quilting through each block.|

|This Dr. Seuss print is my favourite of the backing fabrics.|

|All rolled and ready to go when Hunter arrives!|
|I used an adorable ribbon with cars on it to tie up the quilt.|
