I finished up the design portion of a One Block Wonder class I taught at Sew Nice in Norwich, NY. It was a great class with 11 wonderful creative women. We had loads of fun!
I just want to dive into these blocks, looks like water to me.
Barb had fun with her Cowboy Hat fabric.
I Love how Bernie’s came out.
This does look like a big garden. Can you see the path?
Alice had a beautiful Asian fabric.
Next to Alice is are gorgeous blocks from a sunflower fabric.
Judy didn’t have all her blocks ready to design, but she had enough done to play.
I absolutely loved Krissy’s fabric. I love grey and this came out so beautiful.
Rebecca was not pleased with her fabric selection. I thought it was beautiful.
Tara was making this OBW for her brother. I’m sure he will love it. Her blocks were so much fun!
Do you see the twister?
Love this. It is awesome.
How big were your Hexs ? I’ve done 3 3/4″ but I would like to go bigger. I know it all depends on your repeats. Just curious about the ones in red, black and gray. Thanks and keep up the good work
In the class I just taught everyone cut their strips 3 3/4 inches. It is not necessarily the size of the repeat but the size of the design elements that determine the size the strips should be. If you have flowers that are 6 inches or bigger you could probably cut your strips larger for larger blocks. I always tell students if your design elements are smaller than 4 inches your blocks will look like the original fabric because you are not taking apart the design. Does that make sense?
Looks like you had a great class I hope they know what a wonderful teacher they had They learned from the BEST One Block Wonder teacher there is Hope you have many more classes
Thank you my friend Judy (the trunk monkey)!
where can I buy this pattern on line
Are you referring to the One Block Wonder? If so, it is not a pattern but a process. There are 3 books by Maxine Rosenthal.
Such beautiful designs… Sounds like a great time.
Thanks, they were a great group of students. We had fun!
