    On Mon, I will be starting a discussion of fabric choices for the OBW,

    For those that have the book and possibly the ruler, and always wanted to try it, you may be interested.

    For those that have always wanted to try and don't have the book, you may want to think about getting it now as there are a few of us that are planning on starting one.

    These blocks are just so cool looking, but they look way to hard for me yet! I will be watching you guys though for tips, I definatly want to do one of these when I am a little more experienced.

    that is one quilt I want to do...but can't start one at this time. I may be able to buy the book so I can follow along and get familiar with the process.

    To be honest, it is one of the easiest blocks that I have ever done, there really isn't anything to it, feel free to watch and see just how simple it really is.

    The book is called One Block Wonder, there is a second one as well, Though you could also use the Stack n Wack as well,

    OBW is a type of stack n wack

    THe block has 6 pieces that are all the same, it is really easy.

    One Block Wonders Encore is the second one.
    It has much of the same basic info as the first, and has added the cube blocks. I believe a third book is coming out in April?

    I don't have a picture of the book. I no longer have the book. Mom has it at the moment. But if you search it it will come and I will get a picture of the ruler. Though you can use a regular ruler as well if it has the angles on it. I have used both.

    The ruler I have is called a super 60 but there is more than one that has that angle. It can be used for other blocks as well.

    Great! It is a lot of fun and adictive. One of the few things you don't need a pattern for. Once you figure it out. It is full speed forward.
