    Hello everyone!

    I just finished this One Block Wonder from the technique in the Maxine Rosenthal books of the same name. The original fabric is shown first and I also pieced some of it into the border. My FMQ technique is still in its infancy (!) but on this I'd tried to make it vaguely leaflike - I show a close up so judge for yourself if it worked or not - I think it's OK, better in some places than others! :-D Thanks for looking.

    Original fabric - thanks Gai!

    Close up of the cubes - my first real attempt at these so a bit lumpy!

    I think that no matter how many times you'll look at your own OBW you'll see changes you think would look better, but that's the magic of them! I looked and looked and I can't see anything I would change... it is stunningly beautiful!!

    Thanks Deecee - I have to credit Gai with the fabric choice though - she sent it to me! Bless her heart! :-D
