Way back in April when I went on retreat, a class was being conducted for the One Block Wonder quilt. I had never seen them and was instantly intrigued! I knew I had to try one so I signed up this Summer for the class.
The class met twice. The first class was in June and we learned how to cut our fabric. Over the summer we sewed and sewed and sewed our blocks together and returned just recently for our second class. The second class was putting our blocks up on the design wall.
This took a long time! I would put up several blocks and tweek the placement only to discover something else wasn’t working for me in the composition. So more tweaking ensued. So on and so on! Pretty much ALL DAY (or at least 3 or so hours). Then when I got to a point that I thought looked good I stopped…
This was it! Everything then was rolled up and I now have all the pieces here at home. This will be a good on going project for me this winter. I really love this technique, and just like my really funky new wood floor, I can just get lost in all the crazy swirl and color of the quilt!
Have any of you made a One Block Wonder quilt? If so, please share your link! I’d love to see them, they are so cool!
This fabric is fish btw! Can you make out the little ‘Nemo’s'?
