Rosie Kirven's One Block Wonder

Rosie Kirven took Ann Petersen's One Block Wonder class last June and she came in with her finished quilt just the other day. I didn't get to see it in person, but it's sure stunning in these pictures. I'm always curious about the original fabric and in this case, Rosie stitched a large chunk of it into her backing. It's a very large print filled with lions and tigers and bears, oh my--I'm sorry, lions and tigers and zebras.
Below are two photos of the quilt. It is really amazing how many different blocks can be made from the same fabric. Doesn't Rosie look proud?



Way to go Rosie! Thanks for sharing your quilt with us.

This quilt is so beautiful! I'm feeling inspired to go home and finish my 1-block wonder (started in 2006!)

The quilt is lovely - congratulations! I am still working on the baby quilt I started before my grandbaby was born. I will bring mine in, also proudly (if it turns out) when completed. Janet

I would like to know more about the orginal fabic! Is the animal square hand done? I assume it is the front of the quilt. I am particularly interested in qfrican clothes as I spent 3 years in
south Africa.

I love the One Block Wonder! I have made a couple and have taught a couple of classes on it! Very fun:)

Hi Ruth Ann,
The first picture is actually the back of the quilt. The animal print was cut to create the blocks on the front. We think it was a fabric we carried from Classic Cotton's Exclusively Quilters line called Siberian Tigers.
