One Block Wonder again

I didnt fall in a hole.  I’m alive and well, thank you very much.  Sometimes life gets busy and I dont have time to post on the blog.

Ive been quilting and sewing and bird watching.  And reading and playing and walking and cooking.  You know, regular life.

I finished my OBW, it is ready to quilt someday. Here it is:

    How pretty and I, too, love the border technique. Do you have a photo of the original fabric?

    The original fabric is along the top and left borders. That part is not cut in smaller pieces.

    Love the quilt.. The colours are my kind of colours.
    I have just pieced a OBW using Kona bay fabrics and your border gave me the perfect idea on how to complete my border..Thank you for the inspiration

    Youre welcome. My border inspiration came from the 2nd OBW book.

    Where do you find out how to do the outlined cubes? I love the colors in your quilt and the way you did the border. Thanks.

    Directions for making the hollow cubes and other cubes are in the 2nd book, One Block Wonder Encore.

    I love the effect of the OBW, like an abstract deisign of snowflakes. What is the pattern of your original one block? I dyed a large piece of fabric and would like to try this?

    This is so beautiful. I’m going to have to try one of these. Guess I better read about picking fabrics first like you did. I’m sure that’s the key.

    The fabric is in the outside border. I bought it at JoAnn’s.
