One Block Wonder



The blocks in this quilt are made from one fabric with very little waste!  You cut and sew equilateral triangles forming hexagons and then design with these kaleidoscopic blocks.  There are no "Y" seams.  Because this quilt features one repeated block, the design merely involves playing with the colors and shapes in any way you choose.  The quilt you produce will have more energy and movement than the original fabric!  In this class you will learn to:
* Identify and cut fabric repeats
* Align the repeats
* Cut equilateral triangles
* Sew the hexagon blocks
* Sort the blocks by predominate color
* Design with the hexagons
* Sew the quilt top together
* Finish the edges
Skill Level:
advanced
Requirements:
* Sewing Machine in good working order * 1/4 inch foot * Thread * Seam Ripper * Rotary Cutter with a new blade (this is very important because you will be cutting through 6 layers of fabric). * 6" x 24" long ruler for cutting the WOF strips * For cutting the triangles there are 3 options 1. The Clearview 60 degree Triangle ruler, by Sarah Nephew 2. The Star 60 tool, by Studio 180 Design 3. a 6" x 12" ruler with 2 60 degree lines on the ruler. The Olfa frosted 6" x 12" works well. This would be my last choice). * 36" and 18" mat that can be taped together with painter's tape as we will be cutting the fabric strips the width of fabric (WOF) * Flower pins (they lay flat enough for a ruler to be over them so the ruler will still be flat against the fabric) * Small safety pins or Wonder Clips for keeping the cut hexagons together when taking them home * Standard class supplies: pins, snips, pencil, notebook, scissors, straight edge acrylic ruler, camera, etc. * Recommended Book: "One Block Wonders" or "One-Block Wonders, Encore", both by Maxine Rosenthal
