    These are my choices to do my next OBW, I am leaning towards using the grapes with leaves.

    I'm waiting for my book to arrive, so I'm really clueless about this....but can you give me an idea of what is meant by "repeats" and how to figure that?

    It is how often the print is repeated, the caries from print to print, it will also help decide how big to cut your pieces, if all else fails, look at the writing on the side, for sure when they repeat that, it is for sure for sure a repeat, if you post some fabric, I can show you where it repeats itself if you need help,

    Do you have a bi-fold mirror so you can audition your fabric? It really makes it easy to know whether or not you are going to like the results before you ever cut into it.

    I have several pieces that are good for OBW quilts and I will post pics in the morning.

    Those grapes and leaves are going to make a stunning quilt. :D:D:D
    I am going for a different color scheme. I have (2) 2yard pieces with 6 inch repeat and a 8 inch, from the same collection. I am going to try to make mine out of both for a lap quilt. :wink:
    I am thinking about saving some blocks from the original fabrics to scatter in the border or use as corner stones.

    I don't, but I have a fair eye or imagination to what it will look like without it,
