one block wonder with border print

one block wonder with border print

Tried the OBW with a border print which had three repeats in the width of the fabric. . I cut around the yellow striped parts of the print to avoid having them take over the entire quilt. In the end I was able to piece the stripes together to provide a narrow yellow border. OBW is an interesting technique but I prefer symmetry of design so this may be my first and last OBW. I used nearly every bit of the 3 yards of fabric to make this quilt which measures 51x55. Yellow minky on the back. In the brightly colored areas I quilted an outline of the fabric pattern in most of the blocks to avoid the dark blue thread taking over the area, In the darker areas I quilted swirls and feathers and dot to dot designs in the hexis. I used wool batting, my favorite. I will be sending this to an extended family member undergoing treatment for cancer.
