    Two for the price of one! Once I had all the blocks on the board I decided there was too many colours for a good arrangement, so I split them into two separate quilts. It's hard to imagine them now being cut from the same fabric.

    this is the original fabric

    Beautiful! I love the twirly feathers on In The Red and the contrasting colour quilting in the border of Orange Sundae really sets it off a treat! Plus your treatment and placement of the cubes is spot on - they really add to the design. What a lovely pair! :lol: :D

    Beautiful pair of quilts. I'm always amazed at those OBW blocks, especially when you see what the original fabric was. Great job you did.

    WOW, I see what you mean, I would have never guessed that they came from one fabric. You have done an excellent job dividing the colours and getting two completely different looks. WAY TO GO!!!!!

    The One Block Wonder Encore book is all you need - it is very easy and explicit to follow - good tips on fabric to buy, quantities etc.

    Thanks everyone, I enjoyed making these too. It's amazing how the blocks came out - quite different! I still have some over, enough to make a runner or the like.

    The second one grabs me. I want to do a quilt with lots of those cubes shown in the first one.

    Yum, lovely. Fabulous splitting them into two as well, I'm on other things at the moment but this is making me think again now about a couple of OBWish fabrics I've put on the back shelf for now...

    I love your feather method, too. it looks so much lighter and airier than a feather with lots of backtracking.
