My First One Block Wonder

Every year my guild has a retreat. This year, I won't be able to attend, but since it's being taught by one of our members, I was given the sample quilt to quilt (does that makes sense?) Anyway, Donna will be teaching the One Block Wonder and this is the sample that she made. I used Dream Puff batting and tried to isolate a few of the more unique designs that the piecing created to give it sort of a trapunto effect. It worked in person...not sure about the photo.

I also tried to give the blocks definition. Funny thing was, when I had the quilt on the frame, I had a hard time seeing the blocks. They had no dimension. Luckily, when the quilt was off the frame and I stood back to look, the individual blocks took shape nicely.

The quilt itself was so busy that I did an allover swirl in the border and the main body, just adding some interest with the continuous curve in the sashing.


  1. luv OBWonders! This one is 'wonderful' in black/white and red!

  2. This was my first...they're fun quilts!

  3. Beautiful quilt! I love the combo of black/white/red. I just finished my first string quilt in black/white/lime green. I've just added the one block wonder to my list of to do's.

  4. Corina...I love your string quilt and your pups! They're adorable!!
