    One Block Wonder (OBW)

    Got the blocks up on the design wall and seams all sewn at a quilt retreat recently. Now to figure out how to finish it. From the "fruit ladies" print.

    Looks like a nice flow of patterns/colors.

    I have to say, the Fruit Ladies fabric is not one of my favorites - but they never looked as good as they do here! Spectacular quilt!

    Very pretty. Love how it goes from dark to light and then darker again. I have fabric bought to do one but haven't tackled it yet. To many others on my list.

    Love the stack and whack method no matter how they are put together. Such variety from one piece of fabric.

    LOVE IT!!! I have a OBW book and fabric in my cupboard. I haven't pulled it out yet, but this may just inspire me to do so!

    I love the way the colors flow from dark to light. One thing I would like to see is the original fabric.

    It is amazing how much one can change the look of a fabric. Do you plan to use the Fruit Ladies as a border or backing?
