    Well I has some fabric that I wasn't sure what to do with so decided it might make an OBW .
    Spent yesterday cutting and matching.(didn't do great with that) The fabric had been washed so maybe that was it.
    Stayed up until 10 last night , then started again late morning turning each one 3 times to figure out the best one to my eye. My camera came in handy for this.
    I haven't started sewing yet just have them on my design boards.
    First a picture of the fabric then a pic of the blocks.
    This thing could be addicting. I have 35 different blocks from one fabric. I had no where near the yardage the book calls for but I think its kinda neat anyway

    I just have to figure out how the layout will go .
    I am seeing blocks when I close my eyes. I think I need a break. lol

    I am thinking of putting the triangles inbetween since I really am not thrilled with them right next to each other. I will have to try again once I get them sewn together. Or maybe I will throw some of the cubes in. I am checking out all the great pictures on here looking for ideas.
