    k3n, I love the way you used yours as a background! I'm going to make a "practice" OBW out of some other fabric. Then I'll decide whether to use this fabric for one or go ahead and do something else. This would make beautiful border and/or accent fabric. I bought it on sale some time ago...just because I fell in love with it!

    In the first book about OBW's, Maxine Rosenthal shows a quilt that is made from a fabric in shades of rust with even less variation than yours. It is a beautiful quilt, but very subtle. I say go for it.

    I too am hesitant on it ... though agree that in the OBW book, there's a couple of quilts made with fabrics that would be against the "rules"!!

    Get your mirrors out and take a look at it and see if it will give you the look you like.

    It's going to be more subtle and less variance ... depends what you like!!

    Not the perfect fabric for a OBW. A little less busy maybe.
