    :lol: It's not that hard, really! Just a case of keeping all the pieces in order. I just laid them out and picked up, sewed and put back in place as I went along. You also need a 60 triangle to cut out the pieces. :-D

    Or just a ruler with a 60degree line. That's what I used.

    Yes, you can make the hexs like that, but for the cube blocks, you need the triangle. Sorry, should have been clearer!

    See, see,see. It's just what I said before, that the print of the fabric does all the work for you. After you read the instructions for this and make one, you'll be surprised at how easy it is and it looks so hard!

    Thanks Deecee - I have to credit Gai with the fabric choice though - she sent it to me! Bless her heart! :-D
    well, between Gai's choosing and generosity:wink: and your work...it's a stunner, K! :thumbup:
    It has a 'glowy' look to it on my monitor, and it's very pretty. Such detail...it's all great! Give that hubby a big hug...he knows when something is fantabulous just the way - you are :wink: :wink: :wink:

    Wow! This is another fabulous OBW. I'm going to have to give those hollow cubes another try someday. They really add to the quilt, and your fabric choice and layout are absolutely amazing.

    Thanks everyone! I was going to work on a PP WIP this evening but I've run out of printer ink so I MIGHT have to cut another OBW instead! ;-)

    Thank you all!

    Amma - that was the left over strip of fabric after I cut the repeats so I just sliced it in half and added the black to make it long enough. I was pretty pleased with the way it looks too but it was more a 'happy accident' than cleverness! :-D

    firstly I love obws and i love seeing the uncut fabric and then seeing it cut up into the obw. I am just looking for a ruler so I can start mine as have the obw book but am having trouble locating an Australian online shop with a 60 degree triangle ruler. I am a novice when it comes to buying online so am dipping my toe into buying online by first trying to buy locally before branching out overseas...

    Hi blahel - you can make the basic hexagon blocks using the 60 line on your regular ruler - you need the triangle for the hollow cubes though! I'd recommend the 'Clearview' if you can get it. Don't get the Marti Mitchell with the points cut off - it's a p in the a! Ask me how I know! :D

    Just found this post and had to tell you how beautiful your OBW is. I am working on a pink and green, wish it had more color.

    I'm sure it will work out. If you had the second book One Block Wonders Encore, you could consider adding the cubes. I do this if I think an OBW needs more interest or colour. Just an idea. :-D
