Would you like to post your fabric for a discussion as to how it might work for One Block Wonder quilts?
I will start off with a few I have in my stash.

They would all make gorgeous OBW quilts! There is so much variety in all the patterns!

All would be good but I like the second one the best. the colors are great and there would be so many different blocks.

I think 'Birds' or 'Birds 2' - either or would give you more color variations to different blocks.

I see potential in all of them. it totally depends on what look you are going for to which one I would start with,

They are all so pretty, but I'm personally partial to roses. Can't wait to see how they look after they are put together.

They are all very suitable for OBWs.
And each will lend itself to different design elements.
I've just received my copy of the new "One Block Wonders Cubed" book a few days ago, and in there are many more design dimensions for these quilts, not only cubes!
It is going to expand the designing/layout of OBWs immensely.
