Design Wall Monday

After I finished my first One Block Wonder, I immediately began another and bought fabric for two more. I happened to have 10 yards of this fabric:

I found it in the sale bin at my LQS. My friend, the owner, said it wasn't selling. I was surprised since I think it's beautiful! I was going to put it on the back of another quilt but I think this is a much better use.

This is only the upper half as the long arm is in the way. I will have to slide it out of the way to work. It will take a few weeks of rearranging. I'm going for the look of a meadow and I love it so far! The small white triangle is a slip of paper to mark the center. I had to put up a temporary design wall since my usual one is too small.

This is my first OBW finished:

I didn't buy enough fabric for the borders so I used the sunflowers. It's another print from the same line. Here's a closeup of some of the blocks. I love the little bird heads.

This is the original fabric:

I love the fabric used in both these quilts, they've worked out beautifully. As I bought the One Block Wonder book a short time ago I have been searching through my fabrics for the right one, so seeing your choice of fabric is extremely helpful.

Your top fabric is beautiful; I don't blame you snapping it up, I'd have done the same. It's exactly right for the one block wonder too.

Your One Block Wonders are beautiful. I love to see what the fabric looks like before it is cut. Isn't amazing how different the quilt looks after creating the blocks? Your bird blocks are so cute!

Your 'Meadow' quilt looks stupendous so far.
