    Okay I'm really excited so I am already posting my fabric for this one. I am going to do it in the octagons from the One Block Wonders book. This one is actually going to be for me! All of my quilts have gone to others so far.

    I started cutting last night so hopefully I will have some blocks to show soon. :mrgreen:

    Luv your fabric. I have done two OBW's so far and have several fabrics for more. They are so much fun to do. Enjoy....and I will look forward to seeing the finished quilt.

    I love it, should make a beautiful OBW. I have all the blocks done on one but having a hard time getting it laid out just right. It just doesn't look good. Good luck with yours.

    Love it! I may be dumb, but are those kaleidoscope blocks? I have been just dying to try them, but never can decided what fabric will work. Looks like you definitely don't have that problem. Are the pieces cut with templates? And how do you decide where to cut?

    Nursie, there are two great books called One Block Wonders and One Block Wonders Encore by Maxine Rosenthal that explain the process - the fabric is stacked into 6 identical layers and the triangles are cut with a 60 triangle. The patterns fall where they may and it's such FUN! Ain't it, Jenell? Back me up here! :D
