    One Block Wonder-Finished

Size:  94.9 KBYou might remember about one and 1/2 years ago I showed this on my design wall. I sent it to a local LAQ in my neighborhood. Just got the binding finished. I need to make the label and pillow cases and it will go to my daughter. Name:  IMG_2053.jpg

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

    Gorgeous! I have the book, just seems very intimidating. What did your original fabric look like?

    Great quilt! Is this the only one you've done or is it the first of several? I have done one Stack and Whack, one 4 patch posy and collected fabric for 2 OBW. That is as far as I've got.

    This is the first I have done. I would like to try the stack and wack. Good luck with OBW it is very time consuming and I did not enjoy that much.

    Very pretty. I made one that nobody would want. Haha. But love making stack and whack. They are much easier. I love yours!

    I always admire anyone of you who has done a OBW. It is lovely and although I know I will never do one, I love to look at yours!

    I'm not sure what the difference is between OBW and Stack and Whack. I've done a couple as well as a 4 patch and found them really fun. the OBW with triangles is considerably more time consuming, but I love turning the pieces to decide which I want in the center, and then experiencing the fun of:"Oh! Look how this turned out!!" Each one is a surprise. And if that's not enough, then deciding how to layout the blocks is yet another creative experience. This quilt is really beautiful,by the way!

    It's a beauty, I really love all the colours. Nice work too. I have two of those books, maybe this will be the push I need to start one. Thanks for the inspiration and thank you for sharing with all of us.
