    My One-Block Wonder

    Fairly new to quilting, I just discovered this fabulous book. For my lap quilt (it's about 55" x 80") I used an Oriental fabric, a piece of which is on the back. I am also calling it my One-Week Wonder Quilt, because I bought the fabric on a Tuesday afternoon and sewed the binding on in front of the TV on the following Monday. Couldn't stop sewing the triangles together to see what emerged! The colors of the fabric are more true in the bottom photo than in the top one -- I had to resize the pix of the front of the quilt, maybe reducing the number of pixels reduced the true colors of the quilt.

    Like the border treatment...very nice.
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.
