I love fabric.
I love creating beauty.
This quilt is hands down my favorite quilt I've ever done.
The One Block Wonder is made of tiny triangles of fabric. It looks so intimidating, but Maxine Rosenthal, who designed this quilt, makes the process so enjoyable.
Cutting was fun, (link to blog post with more pics) but I love eating my breakfast and looking up at this quilt hanging over our dining and just feel so satisfied and thrilled that it came out the way it did.
I saw a sample one block wonder quilt hanging on the wall in a quilt store and was so intrigued by the pattern and the visual effect that I called in sick to work in order to take the 6 hour workshop to make this. Yes, I'll admit it, I played hooky.
It took just one day to cut out all of the fabric and start making it. One day, but hours and hours afterwards to sew the little hexagons and arrange them to make this pattern. I still think that the time was worth it.
Ok, here is where I ask for some interaction.
What was your favorite quilt/project you've ever done?
