One Block Wonder

If you are unfamiliar with this technique, it is a method of stacking fabric so that it has you cutting identical 60-degree triangles to make a kaleidoscopic hexagon.
Cynthy has tips and tricks for getting everything lined up and perfectly cut. And half the fun is getting all your kaleidoscope blocks up on the design wall and finding the perfect arrangement! No two quilts are ever the same!

This technique can be done with yardage or panels, the trick is having enough identical repeats to complete your hexagons!

What you need...
The usual suspects and basic sewing supplies, machine, rotary cutter & 24" x 36" mat, neutral thread, 1/4" foot, seam ripper etc.
One Block Wonder book (there are a few options, Bigfoot will have them in stock)
6 repeats of fabric, repeat should be a minimum of 24” apart. (Approximately 4 1/2 to 5 yards but this is not a golden rule!).
OR 7 identical panels.
A 60-degree triangle ruler with no cut-off corner. You have to be able to rotate the triangles with all sides the same. 
24” x 6” ruler
Don't forget! You get a 20% class discount on all of your supplies before class and your total purchase the day of!

Because it's still a pandemic, we've made some changes to how we run in-person classes:

  • We will be following all state and local COVID-19 guidelines and mandates.
  • Teachers and students must be vaccinated and wear a mask for the entire duration of the class.
  • For checking vaccination status, we are following the rules established by WA DOH.

Before signing up for class, please check your schedule and read our class policy carefully. To be fair to our teachers and other students we must remain firm on our registration and cancellation policies

  • For any class where the fee is more than $100, 50% is due when you sign up. The other 50% of the fee is due 60 days before the class begins. To sign up with a deposit only, please call or stop by the store; we can only process full payment enrollments on the website. 

    • If you need to cancel more than 60 days before the start of class, any fees paid are refundable except for an administrative fee of 10%. If it is less than 60 days, the fee (less admin fee) can be refunded only if your space in class can be filled.

  • Classes, where the fee is less than $100, must be paid in full when you sign up for class. Cancellations must be made at least 7 days prior to class and you will be issued store credit.

  • Our guest teachers reserve the right to cancel 48 hours prior to any class if the participation level is below any stated minimum.
  • We will issue a full refund for any class we fully cancel. We will reschedule classes as quickly as possible, rescheduled classes are not subject to a full refund, if you cannot attend the new dates you will receive a store credit. 
  • Your registration in class implies your agreement to adhere to all the above-stated cancellation and refund policies. 
  • Your registration in class implies your agreement to adhere to our current mask policy. No refunds will be given if you choose not to attend class based on any expectation of a relaxed mask policy. 
  • In the event of inclement weather, classes could have a delayed start time or be rescheduled for another day. If we are experiencing snow and icy conditions please check social media including Facebook and Instagram. This will be the quickest way to receive updates as the stores might not be open if road conditions are too dangerous for staff to get to the store to call or email you.
