A World of Wonders, OBW #95

I just completed my 95th One Block Wonder! I guess I need to shoot for making at least 100 OBW’s!

A World of Wonders

“A World of Wonders” is made from a panel by Josephine Wall and measures 72″ x 97″. I integrated Star 60 and Quad 60 Stars and Island Batik fabrics to enhance my quilt’s story.

Hunter Star Blocks Have a Hidden Treasure

I am teaching a Zoom class for Beginner Hunter Star on May 28, 2022. As an introduction to I wanted to talk about Deb Tucker’s book Hidden Treasures. This book offers quilters over 30 projects to choose from. Finished quilts are a generous lap size. All the projects in this book are made using the Rapid Fire Hunter Star Petite tool.

Hidden Treasures is intended to be a design play book. All the quilts are made using the 7” block size option, and the simplest two color variation where half the pieces are dark value and half are light value pieces.  Students can use the one of the following options: 8 dark fat quarters + 8 light fat quarters Or 8 dark fat quarters + 2 yards of a single light fabric Or 8 light fat quarters + 2 yards of a single dark fabric.

There are just 3 block configurations used in these patterns from Hidden Treasures.

The Hunter Star layouts above were all made from the same 48 blocks! This is why you want to learn the Deb Tucker way of making Hunter Stars!

In the Hunter Star Peite Zoom Class you will make the quilt project on page 2 of the Hunter Star Petite Tool Instructions.

In class you will make 16 blocks, but we won’t stitch the block halves together. This will give you an opportunity to try many different design options. Download the supply list here:

Chrysanthemum Quilt

For the last year and half I been experimenting with Deb Tucker’s Star 60 Tool and adding stars and cubes to One Block Wonders (OBW).

Chrysanthemum Block

This block was created by the Studio 180 Design Brain Trust. I call it the Chrysanthemum. I put it in my OBW Star Chamber.

I wanted to see what the Chrysanthemum block looked like as a quilt.

Chrysanthemum Quilt, measures 46″ x 60″

Holy guacamole, someone make me a margarita! This quilt just makes me smile and think of a fiesta.

I am teaching Zoom classes on OBW’s and the Star 60 tool, along with the 5 technique sheets for the Star 60 tool. I have added the fabric requirements for this quilt to class the supply list so you can decide whether to make a block for your OBW or a Chrysanthemum quilt.

Moving Forward – OBW #94

I love Josephine Wall’s panels. I call this one “Moving Forward”. It measures 74″ x 98″. The Framed 60 Stars, Log Cabin Stars and Cubes were made using the Star 60 Tool. (Technique sheets for the Log Cabin Stars and Cubes are coming soon.)

I made my “She Who Sews” OBW using Studio 180 Design’s Star 60 tool to cut the triangles and make the cubes and stars.

“Exclusive 20% off Special!” You may have seen that my good friend and also a great friend of the One Block Wonder Quilt Forum, Jackie OBrien, is running a series of OBW classes, including some for putting stars into your designs. In the basic classes, Jackie will be presenting a variety of tools to cut your triangles, and one will be our Star 60 tool. In addition, it will be featured in her classes on stars. We have long felt our Star 60 (for hexagon’s) and Wedge Star (for octagons) are the perfect tools to help you make your OBW blocks and stars easily and beautifully. These are the first public classes we know of that will present our tools for use in OBWs, and it’s a very exciting moment for us. In honor of that, we are running an exclusive special for you from now through the end of January of 20% off the purchase price of the Star 60 and/or Wedge Star tools. You can purchase the tools on our webstore, here:
