    Just the top at this stage, it's in the queue to be quilted though and fairly near the front! It's 50" 75" and although my 9th One Block Wonder (from the technique created by Maxine Rosenthal in her books of this name) the first where I included 3D features of the head and tail. Sorry about the photo quality - technical issues! :-D

    PS the original fabric is the right hand panel in the border.

    I have a pattern to do those 3D blocks in a OBW but haven't done it yet. Love your cute little "extras".

    Ooh really really nice. Love your OBW and love the boxes and the way you made that snake come out of the box. Its so different and a neat idea putting the fabric on the bottom that it was made from.
