One Block Wonder 2 day retreat



If you are unfamiliar with this technique, it is a method of stacking fabric so that the repeats match up and allow you to create a kaleidoscope effect. There are 2 sessions. The first sessions for this class. This is so those that can not be there during the week can come on the weekend.


Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: Choose a fabric that features colors you love! This should be a large print, the larger the print the less the finished blocks will look like the original fabric. The books suggests designing with a fabric with only two or three colors, this is easier than one with multiple colors. Buy 6 repeats of the main fabric. The larger the repeat the more blocks you can make and the larger your quilt can be. Make sure that the repeat is at least 8 inches. If you have time before class and get your book early you can read the chapter about fabric selection if you need help. Do not prewash your fabric.
