I went to this particular sewing day with no idea of what to expect. I really struggled with the concept of how to cut my fabric and then sew it to achieve the 'kaleidoscope' blocks which make the One Block Wonder concept so intriguing. I searched images of "One Block Wonder" before the workshop and it still didn't make sense to me.
So off I went, with my many companions, to a day of intrigue and learning.
WOW! I was blown away by how knowledgeable our two tutors were and the amazing presentations - these two talented women managed to amaze and stun into silence 24 quilters!
Here is my starting fabric
A few blocks laid out, ready to sew
More the 'One Block Wonder' photos from our wonderful day can be seen here.
The possibilities I can see in fabric now, have changed my thinking. If it has a definite repeat and movement, there are many surprises to be had when making the blocks. I can't wait to start laying out my blocks and assembling the quilt top.
Thank you for sharing in my joy!
PS: Don't forget - if you want to make your own "One Block Wonder", you can purchase or borrow from your library the "One Block Wonder" books.
