Love the OBW!

     One Block Wonders- can't get enough of them! They seem like magic- each one different and gorgeous. The trick is to find the right fabric- a big repeat (I like 24"), not a ton of background, and distinct, varied areas. Takes me a long time to find the right fabric. This is the fabric I used- bought in Meadville, PA at Fox's Sew and Vac: 
    After sewing the triangles, these are the first attempts at arranging. Got a long way to go moving things around.

Does your Black and white photo trick work for this?

A beauty!! I bought around 4 1/2 yards of a a large Philip Jacobs fabric two months ago to make a one block wonder - having seen yours here I need to plan a starting date!

I have yet to make a OBW - haven't found the perfect fabric yet. Seems like the layout variations could go on forever.
