    The fabric is one of Kona Bays Oriental prints

    I'm confused, stack and whack or 1 block wonder? I would really like to try this.

    Your quilt is gorgeous!

    Is this pattern for a beginner, an intermediate,

    or a super-duper quilter who knows exactly what they're doing?

    Stunning! I saw the others you have posted and you do an amazing job.
    Are the small squares 4patch stacked posie blocks?

    Have you ever looked at one of these quilts through one of those door viewers-_to see who is at your door)? My sis used one to rearrange her one blk wonder. She had it arranged then looked through and decided to rearrange it. It shows what colors pops out.

    Love the colors. Is this a current Kona Bay fabric? I don't see it among their current fabric lines. Do you have the name of the fabric?

    Utah Quilt Lady -- Have been agonizing over which fabric to buy since reading your post on Feb. 9th. I particularly liked the quilt picture labeled 218jpg. It had a lot of red and a gold inner border. Could you please advise me as to what would be a good print to make one as lovely? I have made several trips to the LQS armed with my mirrors to look at the Oriental Fabrics. I think what I'm really trying to say is, I'm terrible at picking out fabric. I bought the book (One Block Wonder) and yesterday ordered the OBW Encore so I could do the cube-- now all I have to do is buy the fabric and get up the nerve to try it on my own. Where's a class when you really need one? I suppose I could use two different fabrics if I feel like the first isn't working out.
    PS At least this is keeping my mind occupied and off the terrible case of poison ivy I came down with this week. Thanks
    PS2 I also just ordered the Quilter's Newsletter CD from Quilt Pro. That ought to give me a lot to think about........at this rate (at 75) I might have to come out of retirement to afford my hobbies.

    I'm a huge fan of OBW and your quilt is just gorgeous! I never tire of seeing what will come from just one fabric!

    Grocifer, just get a fabric with the colors you love and the pattern will do the rest! It looks like there is lots of helpers on this site if you get stuck.

    I have checked the Kona bay site on Thousands of Bolts -- how do you determine the length of repeats without contacting them on each fabric you are interested in? The prices are good so may just take a chance, order four yards and use it for something else if nec.
