One Block Wonder

A couple of weeks ago at my monthly teaching day at the Guild, I had fun showing Monique how to do a whack n stack, or One Block Wonder.  She had some pieces of amazing Tula Pink fabrics that she thought would make fun pieced fronts for her knitting bags.  The block turned out amazing and I can’t wait to see the finished bag.  She brought the block to our monthly meeting to share at our show and tell.

Donna fell in love with the block and saw some of Bruce Seeds finished quilts on line and decided she wants to do one.  She asked Monique to teach a class.  Monique forwarded her request to me.

So now I am doing a One Block Wonder to take to our monthly meeting on Wednesday.  Hopefully it will spark enough interest that we will have enough members to do a class.

I found a nice sized piece of ugly Christmas fabric in my stash that I thought would work well.  After I cut my strips and lined them up, I cut my triangles for 3 3/4″ strips.  I have sewn the first half dozen hexagons and am really liking how this is coming along.

Aren’t they fun?  I love playing with the triangles to get that just right look for each hexagon.

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
