One Block Wonder is the most fun I've had quilting in a long, long time! "Newbie Jen" at Quilter in the Closet has been sponsoring a One Block Wonder QAL. Last fall at Cindy's retreat in Cascade, Idaho my tablemate was making this quilt using this fabric:
I fell in love with her quilt, and because I had to race down to the airport in Boise to pick up My Little Sailor, I stopped off at Quilt Expressions in Garden City and bought all they had left of the fabric.
And the book:
When Jen announced the QAL, I dug out the fabric and the book and started cutting:
I made a few kaleidoscopes and put them up on the design wall to admire. This is going to be fun!
Finally, this week I finished making the rest of the blocks and spent an afternoon arranging them on the design wall in my new upstairs sewing room (with the really, really BIG design wall!):
Arranging the hexies is addictive!
Wait a minute, isn't that a little off center?
Of course, this quilt must be sewn together in ROWS, and you know I hate to sew row after row together. But this is one that cannot be taken down from the design wall, so it will be finished before I can start anything else!
Linking up to Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River:
and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Friday is the October UFO Parade. Send me a message with a photo of your October finish by midnight tomorrow night to be included in the parade!
