One Block Wonder

Impress your friends by making a fast and easy One Block Wonder quilt. It is composed of gorgeous, eye-catching kaleidoscopes. We will work from the book “One-Block Wonder Encore!” But wait – to save you lots of time, we will cut out all the pieces on QA’s die-cutting machine in the first class.

Learn the importance of a design wall. Discover the secret of piecing hexagons while sewing only straight seams. No set-ins! You also will learn to make several kinds of cubes to give your quilt even more life. You can’t go wrong with this quilt!


  1.        “One Block Wonder Encore!” book (required).
  2.        Fabric – DO NOT PREWASH YOUR FABRIC! More information on fabric below*.
  3.        Rotary cutter with a new 45 or 60mm blade.
  4.        6” x 24” ruler and medium or large cutting mat.
  5.        Flower head pins.
  6.        Sewing pins.
  7.        High-quality thread to blend with your fabric (no Coats & Clark).
  8.        Sewing machine in good working order (you must know how to use it) and manual.
  9.        1/4 inch foot.
  10.    Flannel design wall. Batting will also work.
  11.    60-degree ruler. (I prefer the Clearview)
  12.    New needles – size 70 or 80 Microtex.
  13.    Sewing notions  such as scissors and a seam ripper.


Pick a fabric with colors you love. Large prints work well. I suggest you read the “Choice of Fabrics” section starting on page 5 in your book before choosing fabric. The author may suggest things you don’t agree with, such as limiting the number of colors. Take her suggestions with a grain of salt. But I agree with almost everything she says. We will discuss this in class. Note that we will not be combining more than one fabric without discussing it first.

Class Policies:

If your class starts at the same time that we open, we will let you into the shop ten minutes before class time.

In consideration of other students and employees with allergies, please limit your use of scented personal products when attending one of our classes.

If your class calls for a book or pattern, each student needs their own copy of that book or pattern. Under federal copyright law, books and patterns may not be shared.

If your class requires a sewing machine, please be sure that you are familiar with its operation, it is in good working order, has been serviced recently, and bring your manual along to class just in case!

We do not allow children under the age of 18 in our classes without the consent of the teacher and the shop owner.

Only the person who is enrolled and paid for the class may be in the classroom during class time. Out of consideration for the teacher and the other students, please do not bring children, guests, or friends to class with you.

Cancellation policy: If the class minimum is not met within seven days prior to the class, it may be cancelled and you will be notified and will receive a full refund. Please keep this possibility in mind when you purchase supplies for your class. No refunds of class fees will be given if student cancels within the one week prior to class.
