    Finished up this One Block Wonder last June for our Annual Quilt Show. My FMQ added so much to it with her beautiful quilting. Now, I am in the process of making some pillow shams to go with it. I love the Christmas fabric because of the beautiful reds & enjoyed using it, especially in the summer, because it is light weight.

    Had lots of fun with the borders on this one!

    isn't it amazing how your Christmas fabric doesn't look so Christmasy in the OBW. I love before and after pics.

    Your creativity with the border is really inspiring. OBW is on my bucket list. Hope to get to it this year. You did a great job.
    Was your quilt show judged?

    I really like the color layout created by the hexagons. Great borders, too.
