I just finished the top for my first OBW - lovely hexigons from farm/cow fabric - and I think that it turned out great. Now I must quilt the beast....and am trying to figure out how. I've carefully flattened and ironed the intersections, but holy cow.....that's alot of fabric all in a big lump! My machine was having issues just stitching it all together, I don't imagine that I'll be able to free motion (or have long armed) without breaking a good number of needles....and there is NO WAY that I want to hand quilt through all of that!
Oh...next dilema....my sides stretched when I put on my boarders and I need to square up.
How have you overcome the OBW hurdles? What pattern did you use to quilt?
