What A Wonder!

Okay, so I know the quilt looks amazing, but the wonder is that it is actually done.

This blog posting is going to sound a little like a victory speech.

First, I'd like to thank Amy. She saved me from my funk. I was totally stuck and she came over and helped me arrange my blocks.

She is amazing and really has an understanding of the One-Block Wonders.
I'd like to thank Steve for strongly encouraging me to get the blocks off the design wall in the dining room. Sometimes you need a little pressure to get stuff done.

I'd also like to thank Cheri for her tips and encouragement. Everyone needs that now and then.

The original fabric used for the quilt is pieced into the back and shown in the second picture.

It is interesting to me that a monochromatic fabric could provide enough interest for this quilt. I think the reason it works is because of the high contrast in value.

I'll post a picture of this quilt once it is finished and finds its place in the monkey room.

You're one-block adventure sounds like mine! Amy to crack through the mind block, and Nathan to provide inspiration. Your quilt is gorgeous!
