About Jackie O’Brien
I have been quilting for over 18 years. I’m totally passionate about quilting and teaching others to quilt. Becoming a Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor in 2013 is one of the great joys of my life. My quilt “Waves of Joy” is included in Deb Tucker’s book “Royal Treasures” based on the Hunter Star quilt.
I discovered One Block Wonders (OBWs) in 2006, I have made 95 so far. Two of my One Block Wonders are featured in Maxine Rosenthal’s book “One Block Wonders Around the World”. The OBW blocks are made from one fabric with very little waste! You cut and sew equilateral triangles forming hexagons and then design with these kaleidoscopic blocks. There are NO “Y” seams.
Because this quilt features one repeated block, design involves playing with the colors and shapes in any way you choose. The quilt you produce will have more energy and movement than the original fabric.
