WBW Encore


A couple of people asked what my original fabric was like for the One Block Wonder quilt. Here it is with a few more blocks made. It's hard to fail with such fabulous fabric to start with. The book I'm using is One Block Wonders Encore by Maxine Rosenthal. This is my third quilt using this method. I also have a few boxes that I didn't use on the other two quilts so I'll have a head start on this one if they match well enough.

Now I can see how you got so much variety out of one print.

This is lovely and unusual colors too.
I have always been so intrigued with these quilts and looking at the fabric that they came from trying to find the section that made that design. Gorgeous!

I got the book and it is worth just having it to look at. But I am going to give this a try. It looks like you have sewn all six of the parts to the hex blocks together. The authors say to only sew three of them. How did you do this? Did you just baste the two halves?

No rush on the answer. I know you are away and I am spring cleaning my house. This sewing project is my carrot to get the cleaning done. VBS
