One Block Wonder Updates

I made progress on my Fall OBW.

OBW in progress.

I got it all pieced together and started on the borders, only to run out of the solid black I was using, so I had to order more and am currently waiting on it to arrive.

In the meantime, I started on another (which I secretly like a whole lot more).

Another OBW in progress.

I've sewn together all the strips of partial hexagons, now I need to sew the strips together.  The good news is that I have all the border fabric I need to finish it up when I get to that stage, so hopefully, I will be able to finish this one up before the end of winter.

I am really loving this technique of using panels together with the OBW techniques!

Oh!  And thank you, Marlene, for the tip about the OBW Facebook group.  I did join up and I love seeing what everyone else is doing there.

I've also decided to join up with the APQ UFO Challenge.  I am supposed to work on Project #2 on my list which is my Van Gogh Cafe quilt.  I probably should have looked to see which number was chosen for January before I made my list.  That is the project that I am the least finished with on my list.  I only have the basic outline completed.  But, I guess it will be good for me to be encouraged to work on it.  After all, progress is progress.


  1. Looks great indeed! I haven't seen OBW with panel as central piece yet and I'm really impressed. Well done!

  2. Cool! I've never seen obw like this. Are you buying several panels to make the rest of the quilt?

    1. Thank you for your comment.  I bought 7 of the same panel to achieve this type of OBW - one for the center, and 6 to make the kaleidoscope blocks surrounding it.  It is a fun way to do OBWs. Sadly, I still haven't finished either one, though they have both been on my design wall for months. I just need borders. Borders seem to be my stumbling block; so many of my UFOs are stalled at the border step.

  3. The fox color would be great. Please finish you'll be so proud.


I LOVE comments, they make my day! I may not always respond, but I DO read them...always.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
