    One Block Wonder top

    This is the quilt top which has to be a finished quilt prior to Monday, so you all know what I'm doing this weekend. This lady's favourite colour is purple. For some reason the photo came in sideways, sorry about that.

    ​Great OBW top! There is a chart on QB on different designs to use for quilting OBW's if you are interested.

    No wonder, you have been busy. Very nicely done.

    Thank you everyone. Since posting this, I decided that it really needed a border and added a small dark purple border. This is the first quilt made on my new Janome 8900

    Great OBW! Would love to see the original fabric. I love making the blocks, but I agonize for WEEKS on placement.

    I ended up adding a small deep purple border around the quilt. Here is the updated picture
