    Okay so I can't stay on task very long and haven't finished my OBW yet. But a new baby girl is due in our family so I have a good excuse. For those who are not familiar with One Block Wonders, it's a process of lining up and stacking several layers of fabric to get the repeating design in each block. I am addicted and can't seem to make anything else. :oops: :mrgreen:

    So here's my fabric and my first few blocks. I'm really loving these roses and guess I will have to find some for me someday. The fabric color is more accurate in the blocks.

    Oh I'm blushing now! You guys are always so nice. This little girl home is in Alabama and they are naming her Caroline. I am hoping they dress her like a southern belle!

    How precious that is . . . what a beautiful gift to treasure! I've never cared for OBW, but your fabric choices have changed my mind. Simply lovely. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

    Absolutely perfect for a precious baby girl! I sooooo want to give the OBW's a go! I did buy some fabric the other day to try, but only go a yard, now I wonder if it is enough for the repeats that it contains. I guess I will only know if I try! :wink: Seeing yours certainly is nudging me in that direction, but I don't think I could ever do as beautifully as you.
