    Hello everyone - here's my latest One Block Wonder using the technique from the books by Maxine Rosenthal. This kind of turned into a giant bookmark during the design process - I'm even thinking of getting a tassel for the point! It measures 30" across and 60" from top to tip. The original fabric is in the top panel - I love this fabric! I had 4 repeats over so I made some QST kaleidoscopes but haven't decided how to set them yet!

    I also was a bit braver with my FMQ and went for contrasting threads - purple centres and red flowers - to echo the poppies. Thanks for looking! :-D

    It's lovely, always amazes me how different they come out compared to the original fabric. I agree with you, it needs a tassle on the end.

    Beautiful job on the blocks and the quilting! What size are the blocks? They look very small.

    Lovely! Beautiful fabric, I love that shape, and the bit of original fabric across the top.
    The fmq poppies are just the ticket in the borders!

    Wow-I love that. I also like the size-manageable (sp?). You did a really great job on your FMQ.
