    Fear not Daisey - it's just straight seams. :-D

    I read the rest of book last night and It will be pretty easy I just may have to make a design wall to make sure they dont get mixed up. I am going to try and finish my stack and whack while I am waiting for my fabric...it shows so many types of fabrics some dont even have big prints ect,,,I may have to try a few of these...the octagons look cool but not sure how you sew the little squares on them and they really didnt explain it well,,That small square piece that fills the hole is kind of confusing. Anyway I will do hexagon for now.

    I've made 4 hexagon OBW's. I have not yet done an octagon OBW. I'd say start with the hexagon OBW and then go from there.

    A design wall is VERY useful - mine is a queen size pack of Quilters Dream Blend batting staple gunned to a length of timber top and bottom and screwed to the wall at the top. The bottom just hangs - the wood is just a bit of weight to keep it straight, I've heard others use curtain weights too. I know ppl who manage withe laying out on the floor but I think if you have the room for a design wall, it's great to be able to stand back and look as you're working. And from the sound of you, this won't be your last, so it will be a good investment! :lol:

    I haven't made an octagon either - it just doesn't appeal to me to fiddle about with the square thingies. Also, I think you 'see' the blocks more in the octagons, I prefer the more seamless look of the hexes. Just my personal taste. :-D

    I went kind of a cheap way and bought a table cloth with that flannel feeling stuff on the back...then used that flannel side to place my hexagons on...they do stick..but I still use one pin to hold them in place :)

    Well girls, I will not be able to join in. I am back from out of town but my daughters step mother died after a year and a half bout with brain cancer and I am very close to their daughter also. She was only 53yrs old. Please remember the family in your prayers

Correct me if I'm wrong someone!

    Anyway, for those who don't know, a One Block Wonder or OBW is a kind of kaleidcoscope quilt similar to stack n whack. There is a Topic List here on the board and a brief description about them with details of the books here http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual_section_list.jsp

    I think we'll all be using the technique from the One Block Wonder books by Maxine Rosenthal. See my link above for more info.

    So far it's me, imjustme and NUTMEG10 who are taking part plus nena in a couple of weeks. I know another lady has the fabric and I'm waiting to hear from her. Meanwhile, here's a pic of the fabric and my first blocks. Looking forward to seeing pics here on this thread from the other ppl with this fabric. It will be interesting to see the differences as we go along! :-D
    K, gorgeous! Do you fussy cut? These are so perfect.

    I won't be able to join as none of our local shops have any of this fabric. Ohh well...I will watch and keep my eyes open for my own perfect OBW fabric. Can't wait to see all the great quilts that will be made from this one fabric!

    I love them Pat - I see some that are unlike the ones I got. But I sense you're not so keen on them... they really will look good once they're all laid out. :-D :-D :-D
