One Block Wonder with Anna Ahmed



One Block Wonder is a simple technique using one fabric or panel to create amazing kaleidoscope hexigon blocks that fit together in a mesmerizing pattern, with NO Y seams! This technique is quite addictive and after you take this class you may find yourself looking at fabric differently.

The class is held over 2 sessions, 1 week apart. Day 1 of class will teach you how to stack your fabric, cut it properly and start to sew your hexagon blocks. Day 2 will be finishing your hexagon blocks and designing them into your beautiful masterpiece of a quilt. Between day 1 and day 2 you can continue to sew your hexagon blocks. Homework is not required but encouraged if you are making a large quilt.

 

Supplies:

  1. Fabric: one continuous cut of fabric to include 6 repeats of the screened image. Standard repeat is 24 inches, meaning 6 repeats will be 4 yards. Your fabric should have large print motifs with a background visible or a panel image. If using a panel, you will need 7 panels (6 will be cut for hexigons and 1 left for either the back or to incorporate into the front)

  • Option 1: wall hanging approx 35x35 (size will depend on the size of your strips - don't worry, we will cover that in class)

  • Focus fabric - 4 yds 

  • Inner border - 1/4 yd

  • Option 2: lap quilt approx 50x70

  • Focus fabric - 5 yds

  • Inner border - 1/2 yd

  • Option 3: panel, this can be as large as you want.

2. Sewing machine

3. 1/4 inch foot for your machine (I personally use a 1/4 inch foot with a guide and love it)

4. Thread and bobbin

5. Scissors or thread snips

6. Rotary cutter with new blade 

7. Standard 24 inch cutting ruler (cutting mats are already in classroom)

8. Flat head pins a.k.a. flower head pins

9. 60° triangle ruler - please buy this from your local quilt shop, Amazon (no brand rulers) might save you money but they may not actually be 60°
