    I just wanted to see if I can figure out the picture thing here. This is my last One Block Wonders made for my hubby. He loves to wear those floral Magnum P.I. shirts so I had to try it out in a quilt. It came out better than I imagined, I call it Drifting Snow. Do you name all your quilts too? :roll:

    Ow, wow! That is gorgeous!! I've not done a One Block Wonder -- they look intimidating. I've never named any of my quilts, but it's never too late to start :lol:

    Love your quilt. Great name for it.

    I name all my quilts too. The quilts usually gain a name while I'm working on them. The names just "happen"!

    What a great name- the snow sort of being the "opposite" of the Hawaiian print. And it's so pretty! I love it.

    I always say I want to make one of these but have never started. Do they have set-in seams?

    This is beautiful! I love it! The Ks are like snowflakes. These are my latest 'big thing' I've nearly finished piecing my second. Do you do the same as me? Piece the hexs in halves then join them in rows? So no set in seams, Lisa! :D

    Oh my goodness! Thank you all for the nice comments! No set in seams, they go together in rows of half hexagons. Really easier than it looks. Maybe this pic will show it a little better.

    And here is the fabric I started out with. It's not the same as the borders.

    That is a beautiful fabric! See, I would never have thought of using that with just two colours but it works beautifully - and I LOVE blue and white anyway! Thanks so much for posting the pic!

    That is a beautiful quilt - good job! I have wondered how well a 2-color fabric would work in a OBW, and obviously it works very well.

    Wow! That is pretty! I never knew how those went together and I would have guessed set in seams.

    Thanks for sharing your work.

    Brilliant, I love it, and great idea to halve the hexagons, then sew in straight rows. I'll have to try that.
