I am busy on yet another One-Block Wonder quilt. I just love playing with those shapes… I hope to have this quilt finished and on display at the Quilts at the Creek outdoor quilt show this summer, August 10th & 11th 2013. (note: I am the writer of that blog too!). Below is the starting fabric. This is quite different from the kind of fabric usually used in this kind of quilt, mostly because there are only a few colours in it, but I do love paisleys!

Here is a typical block- I love the patterns that form.

..but I don’t really like the way they work when I put them together…..

So, back to the drawing board.. this is what happens when you another set of triangles to a hexagon block.. interesting!

What next? Here are some ideas I’m playing with right now……

And this is my favourite as of now…

And here are a group of them..first layout. Once again, the stars don’t seem to “shine” when grouped too closely together. oneBlock5

And my favourite layout right now.. a sprinkling of stars on a white background. I think it makes the stars really POP.
