    Very cool quilt. Most of mine have names. If the quilt gives me problems it might not be a very nice name. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    That is so pretty! And it does look like snow. Isn't it amazing how the OBW changes the look of the fabric!

    I thought I knew what a one block wonder was, and now, I can see that I didn't have a clue ...
    And, people think I know EVERYTHING HAH!
    It is a beautiful quilt, and now, I am going off to find the concept for a one block wonder!

    that's a beautiful quilt. and it sure does look like drifting snow.

    let's hope we don't see any for a while now.

    Gorgeous! Perfect name for the quilt. I name some of my quilts but not all. I am working on a One Block Wonder right now and need to have it finished by Juy 9 when I go to my HS reunion. It is for my oldest (timewise not age) and dearest friend.

    Ducky--it really is a lot easier than it looks. I chain piece mine, so it goes really fast.

    My gosh I just can't believe all the replies here! I have been searching forever for a forum that talks about these!

    Here is a link to the book, are we allowed to do this here?

    http://www.amazon.com/One-Block-Wond...4659820&sr=8-1

    I had signed up for a class in this and it got canceled, so I sat down with my book and went page by page. If I can do it, anybody can!!!

    Like I need another book in my "library"!
    So, I called my LQS and the owner is busily seeking the book ... I will stop in at three (following an interview of some kind) to see if we can find the one I remember seeing in there.
    I PROMISE! This is the LAST book I will buy!

    Omak, I don't think you should be too hasty with your promises, you might live to regret this one, I would.

    Welll, since she didn't have the book I wanted, I bought two others.
    If I keep my timing just right? I can get a whole lot of books between now and the time she manages to get it into her quilt shop.
    I will give her a week. If at the end of that time, I remember that I ever wanted the book, and she still doesn't manage to remember to order it anyway ... I think I saw it on Crafter's Choice ... I may have to go there
    I was sort of kidding about the promise thing ...
    good catch! LOL

    Kathy - please show us when you've done! Unless you'd rather have a Inova quilter's set up than a camera :mrgreen: !

    Chain piecing - do you do several hexs at a time then? That sounds interesting. I take a stack of 6 and piece two sets of three, press seams, pin together and stick on wall. I'd be worried about mixing up the triangles; please enlighten me as to how you do it, sounds like a great tip!

    And I ditto what Jenell said - I went through the book step by step, it's really clear and good explanatory pics (Jenell - we SHOULD be on commission! :wink: ). AND if I can do it then anyone can too! :D

    Beautiful quilt!!! What was the repeat pattern on the fabric in inches? How many yards did you need to make all the blocks? What a need title, Hawaiian print to drifting snow! I name my quilts too and put that into the label on the back of the quilts.
