    I love it!! I've seen some done with just a few colors, and some with many--I really like a lot of color!! I just bought fabric to try one--but I need to finish a few other things up first!!

    Me too! Although some would say this is a bit of a colour overload! :lol:
    I also like OBWs done in subtle colours, monochrome, brights - ALL of them!

    Are you going to make an OBW with it? It makes for very interesting blocks!

    I don't get why these are called One Block Wonders. No blocks are the same.

    Kathy my girl you are a wonder and I am in awe!!! I love love love this one!!! You get better and better with each one! This one the first thing that I saw was on big Kaleidoscope picture as if this was at the end of the kaleidoscope toy!! I love how you blended them and have such strong contrast!!!! Using the same fabric for the little squares just made it look seamless!!!

    This one belongs in a Quilter's Hall of Fame! LOL Tho I know a lot of the OBWs on here by others are spectacular also!!!

    K3n has told me I need to try it but I haven't yet! Some day!

    It's wonderful Kathy!

    I love making the blocks, amazed at how they turn out, but think I would like it better if I made them into squares instead of trying to sew lines of half hexagons together without getting them out of order. I have a problem getting them laid out, and then sewn together in the correct order. Both of mine have been hexagons... i love the way some of you are able to blend the colors so beautifully! If I added the triangles to make squares, I would not have to keep the half hexagons in order, right? and it seems it might be easier to keep seams matched??? Help! I have a shoe box full of half hexagons!
