One Block Wonder Quilt Class

This spectacular kaleidoscope quilt is easy to sew, though it looks complicated: the fabric does all the work! One large-scale print makes all the blocks, and you don't need a special ruler! (There's a fair amount of sewing, but it is NOT difficult!)

Class Supplies

Book: "One Block Wonders," by Maxine Rosenthal

Choosing fabric:

The book that is required for the class has excellent examples of what to look for when choosing fabric but, in a nutshell, choose a large scale print that has a lot going on.  Small prints, or fabric that is too "regimented will not work well.  Though the fabric need not be floral, think: large scale floral.  And consult the book for examples.

Fabric needed:  

You need a length of your fabric that is at least 6 repeats, then add 1/4 yard for "wiggle room"

If it has a 12" repeat and you buy 6 repeats, it will make a quilt about half the size of the sample.  If you want a quilt the size of the sample, you could buy a length that is two sets of 6 repeats (+1/4 yard).

12" x 6 = 72" = 2 yards   Buy 2-1/4 yards to make a quilt half the size of the sample
For larger quilt buy 4 yards to get 2 sets of 6 repeats (and add at least 1/4 yard)

The sample quilts were made from a fabric with a 24" repeat, so I needed 4 yards + extra:

24" x 6 = 144" (4 yards; plus extra for wiggle room)

(If your repeat is smaller than 12" it's not "large enough to work effectively for this quilt)

Tools and Supplies:

- Rotary cutter and mat
- Rotary ruler that is 24" long (can be 6" or 8" wide) and has a 60 degree angle line on it OR any 60 degree ruler.  
- Flat-head pins
-Sewing machine in good working order, and usual supplies:  needles, thread, etc.
