    Quilts # 4 & 5 - a One Block Wonder and a 9-patch

    I made this One Block Wonder just to see if I'd enjoy the process. I wasn't convinced so I dug through my Mom's stash and found what I considered to be not pretty fabric (It wasn't bad but what would you ever use it for in its original state).

    I loved loved loved the process. I already have 2 more pieces of fabric I've bought to make my next OBW's. That was quilt #4.


    Quilt #5 is from the book, Radiant Sunshine and Shadows - I named it West Tx Sunset. This is the one I initially had some fullness on - ripped out about 5 rows, re-squared my blocks, sewed em back together, my first mitered corners and LOVED how that worked out :-) Each completed block is about 2-1/2".... I love the way this quilt looks - it certainly has several flaws in it. I won't be making another with pieces this small for a while! LAQ'd by my mom - the back is in orange thread on the white on white backing... pretty cool if I have to say so myself :-)

    Thanks all for looking.

    Both of these are stunning!!! LOVE what the scenic fabric did in the OBW - guess there just can't be a piece of fabric we should ever give up on

    They are both stunning, but I love, love the sunset one. Oh those colors are just beautiful.

    Who would have thought that fabric would be such a great OBW. Great job!
    That is wonderful curvy quilting with all those tiny squares.

    Oh, my goodness! Your quilts are stunning! The back of your sunset quilt is lovely as well. I see blue ribbons on your quilts for sure.

    Gorgeous! I haven't tried the OBW yet, I haven't found the right fabric.
