    That was a design opportunity then - and it really paid off. :mrgreen: :lol: :D

    In my opinion, it's a little too complex for a tute - get one of the books by Maxine Rosenthal called One Block Wonders.

    Julie that is fabulous - I love the way you rounded off the corners with the green and I like the extra octos floating where they do - more unexpected than in the corners therefore more interesting. Can't wait to see it quilted - still haven't FMQd mine. :oops: :lol:
    I agree. You can look at the tutes on here but you really need one of the books also. I got my fabric cut months ago but still waiting to finish setting up sewing room in the new house so I can finish it. My DD is waiting also since I'm making it for her.

    I love how yours turned out with the wide border. I may have to try this with mine since I am making it to fit a queen size bed.

    I ran across this thread tonight trying to track down the Floral Master fabric. I'd had a UFO wall hanging which I decided to turn into placemats and wanted a bit more fabric. I've looked online and at several JoAnn stores the last few days, but will see if it's still possible to special order. I have made one OBW quilt in the past, and started another using the same light green/red/black fabric that jtapp used - and wasn't happy with my layouts. After reading tonight, I may be ready to try again!
    I'm attaching a few photos of the OBW quilt that I did several years ago using a blue iris fabric that I'd bought at Hancocks (when they closed there stores in the Michigan area). I used hexagon pieces, and cut down some of my extra pieces into smaller hexs and appliqued them on the borders. The backing has a large piece of the original fabric. Thanks for posting all your efforts. I enjoyed reading and remembering.

    I just love these blocks I have make a Stack and Whack, One Block Wonder and a Wackeroo Quilt. I am always amazed at how different each block is. The Stack and Whack I make had large blocks and then around it, it had four corner stack and whack blocks. It was a really neat pattern. On little block looked like dancing legs.

    Hello Everyone, I had committed to doing this quilt with you all, got the fabric from GaiGai, and got the triangles cut while in France taking care of my Mother. Then when I got home I put it all away and have been working on other projects.

    I just finished some quilted batik couch and chair covers, and promised myself to get the OBW out next.

    So here I am, I have six halves sewn together. I got the book out, and noticed it says to always put the straight of grain on the outside of the hexagon. That eliminates the option to choose which placement looks best.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Is this carved in stone?

    Thanks, and I am so happy to finally back get to this project.

    Nicky

    You can turn the triangles any way you want, and ignore the straight of grain. It is not a hard and fast rule. Just be sure not to pull and stretch the fabric. I never look at the SOG, I pick the pattern I like best.

    This material is fantastic!! Can't imagine a thread I'd rather follow than this one!

    Nickylsf, I've made 4 OBW's and never worried about the grain.... just be careful when sewing that you don't stretch the fabric. Actually think the "give" is helpful!!

    Thank you all for the feedback about the SOG. It will be much more fun to arrange my segments in the most pleasing manner. I was intrigued, though, to see what would develop if I just let Ka decide...

    The half hexagons are going together faster than I thought they would! Since I posted last night, I have 8 done. I have a total of 90 cut out, and some more fabric.

    Afterthought: the square root of 90 is 9.48, so if these are 6" blocks it should make about a 54" square quilt.

    Just found this thread. WOW what beautiful fabric. Does anyone know where I might find it? Also, how much fabric do you need to make a full size quilt?
    Thanks

    Gai Gai used to be a member on this Board. The fabric is called CP 28995 Floral Master, and it is made by Springs Creative Products Group LLC.

    I just found it on the Joann site but it says no longer available! So sorry. Maybe you can find it on eBay.

    Many fabrics are suitable, but you need to get the book by Maxine Rosenthal, "One Block Wonders Encore". There is no way to figure this out without the book.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Nicky,
    I already have the book. I just figured out that Gai Gai was a member. LOL
    I was just hoping that someone still had some of this fabric.
    Thanks for your quick reply!
