I have been intrigued with the one block wonder for awhile now.
This technique takes a repeat in a fabric
stacks it on top of each one 6 times.
Then you cut into 60 degree wedges.
You take those identical wedges and sew them back together.
Is that as clear as mud??
I have seen a few now where they used panels.
I went to my favorite local quilt shop..
Crosby, North Dakota
(we are soooo lucky to have her!!)
This panel was 2$!!!!
I needed 3 panels as I planned on stacking this little stud
make my stack and whack blocks...
And making this one - my main man...
This is my trial version of a stack and whack/ one block wonder.
For 6$ I have nothing to lose!!
There are 3 possible ways to sew these blocks
playing around is half the fun
These next two photos are the same stack but different placement!!
Thank goodness for phones so a person can take a pic
spin them again and see what one you like best
The possibilities are endless....
Next I started to lay them out around this stag!
When I came up with a layout I was good with,
I sewed them together and machine basted the center in.
I will hand applique around the center panel.
I plan to bind it with all the wonky sides.
I may get fed up and cut it all off!!
