    One Block Wonder Top- My First

    Here's a pic of my OBW top I finished yesterday--it's a super-queen size. I haven't decided what kind of FMQ to do on it yet and would love to hear suggestions. I'll be using Quilter's Dream Puff batting and want to keep it "puffy". Thanks for looking!

    I love it, gorgeous fabrics....do you have a piece of the original, would like to see what it came from.....good job!!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    The rows with the diamonds should lay over the pillows on the bed when it's all done.

    This quilt is pretty huge--98" x 120". I bought 10 yards of fabric and have less than a yard left. I cut it so there wouldn't be any waste. After I cut and stacked the repeats, I decided how large to cut the wedges so I'd get 3 rows of wedges out of each repeat.

    No suggestion for quilting but the quilt itself is gorgeous.

    Thanks for explaining this process. I didn't understand how you got that masterpiece out of that piece of fabric. It is absolutely breathtaking.

    Great job, Wendy!
    I especially love the solid hexes in the top part! I have one hanging on my design wall and had stopped working on it for some unknown reason...maybe I was waiting for inspiration from you!!
    As for quilting, here is an older thread started by BuzzinBumble with some really neat ideas for OBW's:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...s-t130422.html

    Good luck, and let us see it when you get it quilted!

    - Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
    - I've lost my mind somewhere in the heap of quilting scraps and motherboards.
