    It turns out that a few of us on the Board have got this fabric to make a One Block Wonder quilt so we thought it would be fun to post our progress all together on one thread! The fabric is called Floral Master and is by Springs Creative Products. Gaigai sent me mine but I think it's from JoAnns if anyone else feels like getting some and joining in. 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

    Gosh! I love that fabric. It makes great OBW blocks. I'm envious. I'm going to look for that fabric at my JoAnn's.

    Brilliant imjustme, your pics are much clearer than mine and show the fabric up better. Now I'm comparing hexes! I think I have one similar to your top right. Oh my, this will keep me amused for hours! LOL

    EDIT my bottom right is similar to your top right! :mrgreen:

    I chain them as well - first into the pairs then into the halves. When I press the halves, I then pin and put up on my 'design wall' (in fact it's just a pack of batting hung on the wall)! I use those little aspplique pins as they're really small and light so they stay put.

    I don't know, I'm afraid but I only got it a few weeks ago from Gai. Don't know how long she had it though. Maybe someone else can help? I'll PM Gai. :-D

    I've also looked for it online and can't find it. It sure is making some beautiful blocks. How big is the typical kaleidoscope block?

    Hiya Ducks! I don't know if there's a 'typical' but a good size for these OBWs (as recommended in the book) is to cut a 3 3/4" strip. This makes a finsihed block of 6" across. I sometimes cut bigger or smaller though, depending on the print size. :-D

    PS Just heard from quiltstodo who also has this fabric and will be joining in after she's finished her current project. And thanks imjustme for the correction on the fabric supplier. Hancocks sell online as well don't they? Will check! :-D

    I just got mine a couple weeks ago at joann's. Maybe they don't carry it online. Do you have a store near you?

    Your blocks are all wonderful. I need to get back at mine. I have several different fabrics that I think will make great OBWs.

    For all those trying to get the fabric, I checked JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby online but no luck. I'm sorry! We seem to have picked a rare one!
