Pooh Bierre and Quilt Everyone is hunkering down these days and so are we and we're taking our sewing machines with us!  We've been working on a one block wonder quilt featuring some very cute kitty fabric and we're at the part where the blocks start getting put together.  We cut out the triangles, sewed them together into trapezoids, and now we're sewing the trapezoids together. We love the kaleidoscope effect that occurs when the pieces are sewn together and the various patterns that can be created depending on how the triangles are pieced together.
One Block Wonder quilts work best with fabric that has a busy design that repeats, so panels don't work. Fabric like the one to the Cat Breeds Multi Packed Fabric from fabric.comright from fabric.com works best. That fabric is so cute, we might just make another with it! Depending on the size of your quilt, you'll need at least six yards or six repeats. The repeat is where the pattern repeats, the person at the cut counter will know what you're talking about. Once you've got your fabric, you're ready to fold, press, cut, and sew! Happy sewing!
