    Does any one have any suggestions about a OBW book? I have seen a few of them on this site and really like the look of them. I would like to find a book so I can try to make one.

    It just so happens Connect Threads is having a sale on the latest one block wonder book at 40% off.

    Here is a link http://www.connectingthreads.com/boo...!__D45175.html

    I was thinking of ordering this one myself. I love those hollow cubes!

    I ordered the same one :D:D:D It should be hitting my mailbox any day now :D:D:D
    I chose this one because the OBW blocks/technique are the same in all of the books, but the cubes in the latest book really intrigue me!!!

    I like the cube effect too. I am going to order it also. Hope they don't run out.

    OK, I just got the OBW cubed book, If you have never done OBW blocks before, you may want to get one of the previous books too. There are not as many pages in this book showing how to choose fabric, how to cut it, or lay it out, like in the second book that shows the cube basics.
    Just a heads up :wink: :D:D:D

    I`m in Canada also.
    I just ordered the new one cubed from amazon.ca for just over 15 plus shipping.
    I don`t know if this one also show cutting the wedges but I wanted the cubes.

    Edit*** In my excitement of just looking at the pictures in the new book, and glancing at instructions :roll: I found that although I still LOVE the cubes and combinations of them... the directions for making them are pretty sketchy.... I am a little disappointed now. I am off to find the right type of graph paper now to try and figure some of these out... :wink:

    Thanks for that Amma...I was really looking forward to purchasing this book too...perhaps I will wait and see if I can pick it up at our used bookstore eventually.
