    I also have been inspired by debbie to reorganize my sewing area. I found this fabric at the bottom of one of my totes and think it *might* be good for an OBW. My DH got me the 60degree triangle for my birthday so I've been dying to try out an OBW.

    I've got about 3 yards, maybe 4.

    It's pretty fabric. I don't know what OBW is though.

    One Block Wonder Think it depends on your repeats and what pattern you pick how many yards you need But I would say yes ones with black are usually very sharp and stunning

    Yes, I think it would look fantastic as an OBW. What is the repeat length of it, doesn't look like a large repeat?

    It would be very good. It looks like you have enough repeats. Would love to see pictures when you get it done.

    So I've got the book, and I follow how to cut the repeats, but now how big would I cut my triangles? That's the one thing I'm really confused with.

    If you have the ruler, you would line it up on the 3 1/2 inch line (I try to do a healthy 3 1/2). A 12 inch repeat will be fine, too, its going to look great!
