    Here's an OBW I just finished for a good friend in the UK who breeds dogs. I FMQ'd it and only my second attempt - far from perfect but I'm happy to send it! Thanks so much to Dunster and Jan who both showed OBWs a while back that inspired my choice of fabric and the idea of leaving a full block of the original fabric. I'm showing some close ups of the detail as well. :D

    One Block Woofers - couldn't resist calling it that!

    That is so cute! I never would have thought to try that type of print in such a quilt. Nice job quilting too!

    Hi Katie! I wouldn't have thought of this fabric either but Dunster posted a pic a while ago using this fabric - same range but smaller dogs - so I 'copied'! Can't take any credit myself, I'm afraid! Thanks for your kind comment on the quilting! It's a bit like patting your head and rubbing your belly for me but I'm getting better! :wink: :D

    Thanks mamgus and quilt4u! :D These are such fun - I've got fabric to make more - just got other things to finish first, but these are a REAL favourite! :D

    That's so nice. I never really "GOT" the concept of 1 block wonders but they sure turn out beautiful quilts.

    K3n, I am planning to try one block wonder method and a stack of 6 layers of same printed strips has been sitting in my sewing room for a while. What is the length of the each side of regular triangle you used for a piece?

    I cut the strips 3 3/4 " wide here's a pic - the triangles are 60

    Suzie - as far as I know, there isn't a free pattern available anywhere online but I would recommend the book One Block Wonders by Maxine Rosenthal which explains the technique really clearly. Her second book One Block Wonders Encore also tells how to make the hollow cubes shown in one pf my pics above. It also gives an overview of the technique so I guess you could manage with just the second book but I'd say get both - the first alos describes the octogan method - these are hexagons.

    Thanks Kn3. I really appreciate it, I've bookmarked this for later so I can look on Amazon for the books.

    :lol: and I did, while sorting out the placement! But I have to say my DH helped with that - he's got a great 'eye'! :wink: :D

    I LOVE your placement of the blocks. And that is a great border fabric. These quilts are so much fun!

    Sometimes JoAnns has the first OBW book, so check there if you're looking for it.

    Great title too!

    I love this quilt. And being a dog lover makes it even more special.

    Oh for fun! I love the woofers name! I have heard of a quilter using potatoe fabric to make one of these. Yes, I said potatoes. I haven't seen it yet but I bet it is awesome!
