    Has anyone made a quilt with the new realistic looking Vegetable fabrics? I think they are so pretty but can't figure out what to do with them with the big scale photo type prints and bright colors. I need some ideas.

    What about a OBW? I have yet to make one, but I sure like them and I think the riot of color would be great!

    I have some set aside for a canning quilt, but I'm drawn to the suggestion of a OBW. I may try that instead.

    You could also do a Sudoku 9-patch.

    I saw this in a show once, and thought it was quite striking.

    OBW is a One Block Wonder :D

    I like the idea of canning jar quilts, kitchen wall hangings, appliance covers too.

    am making a 9-patch using fruits and vegetables with a very large center square
    It'll be called EAT YOUR BROCCOLI

    Another one with candies, potato chips, big Macs etc. I haven't got a name in mind yet.

    I really like all the other suggestions you've gotten too.

    Call me dumb, but even after looking at these (very pretty, BTW), I'm still not sure what a one block wonder is. Is it a quilt all of the same block? One piece of fabric? I need a definition I guess.
