I've just spent the last 30 minutes reading thoroughly enjoyable blog posts from all over the world. More inspiration than this girl can handle.
I have about 6 tops ready to layer, baste and quilt. YEAH for me....so what's the problem you may ask??? I'm scared of FMQ !!! I have never done it ( yes I have some practice sandwiches, 4 placemats and a few other little bits of practice )
but - to start on a top I lovingly pieced? well....I am petrified.
I've read you just have to "DO IT" and the more you do, the better you get.
SO: first up?
This One Block Wonder quilt - I made this in 2013. I saw a OBW quilt in a local quilt shop, was stunned and said - I HAVE TO MAKE ONE.
Promptly bought the book, went home and read it from cover to cover.
For those of you who don't know, a OBW (one block wonder) quilt is made with
ONE, yes ONE fabric and ONE type (a hexagon - pieced from 6 EXACT triangles) of block. I bought the book by Maxine Rosenthal and went to work.
Here is the end result:
I am really happy with this quilt. Truly, my third quilt since the one I made for my Mom 13 years earlier (the one that started my addiction to fabric) and renewed my life-long love of sewing. I have NO IDEA how to quilt this. I need help - can you PLEASE offer some suggestions? keep in mind - this will be amongst my first quilts to quilt myself and it is big, apprx. 88" x 72".
It needs a name, any suggestions??
Have a great day ...........
