One Block Wonder

Learn the techniques used for making a one-of-a-kind quilt! Have you been afraid of using large print fabrics?  Now is the time to use them!   
By following the instructions in Maxine Rosenthanl's book "One-Block Wonders - One Fabric, One Shape, One-of-a-Kind Quilts", you will learn the techniques of cutting and layering your fabric to provide you with 60 degree triangles for making hexagons.  

Class may be cancelled if student participation minimum is not met.

Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details: Attendees should have intermediate confidence using a rotary cutter and acrylic rulers as well as being able to achieve an accurate 1/4" seam allowance.
Requirements: Maxine Rosenthal's book "One-Block Wonders - One Fabric, One Shape, One-of-a-Kind Quilts". Rotary cutter (no bigger than 45mm) Acrylic rulers - 6"x24" and any ruler that can provide you with a 60 degree angle for cutting triangles. Some "basic" rulers have this feature on them, but specialty triangle rulers are available. Long flat head/flower straight pins - these are essential - regular straight pins with round heads will be difficult to work with. 1/4" piecing presser foot for your machine, or the ability to achieve an accurate 1/4" seam allowance. Thread to match/coordinate with your fabric of choice. Fabric -- As stated above, large print fabrics are fabulous for this technique. I highly recommend the following: Take a picture of the fabric you are considering. Be careful to not include anything from the background in the picture, like a wall, cutting table, fingers/hands, or the white selvedge as they will appear in the final hexagons. On your cell phone and open "One Block Wonder Design Helper". Tap on "Choose local image" and choose the picture of your fabric, tap "OPEN" in the top right corner. Scroll down, you will see your fabric. Below it, you can choose the size of the triangles...3.75" is the default...choose that. Tap on "Make Hexes". You will see your fabric with triangles on it. Scroll down further and you will see a sample of what your quilt top could look like using that fabric. FABULOUS!!! This is an EXTREMELY helpful tool to use when choosing your fabric. Yardage requirements - for a good lap-size, twin, or full-size quit, you will need 4.5 yards for a hexagon quilt. For queen size or larger, you will need 9 yards. MEASURE THE REPEAT before you purchase your fabric....a 24" repeat is ideal. If the fabric you love only has a repeat of 6" to 8", you will need DOUBLE the amount of fabric so you can get enough triangles and have a variety.
