    So I've been eyeing everyones OBW's and I really wanted to try it! So I found the book by Maxine Rosenthal and It was so helpful...plus reading some tips on here makes it easier!

    It is soooo much fun to put together though!! I can see more of these in my future definitly. This one once I finish it I think I'll keep for myself :)

    OMG, how beautiful. I got that book too and just bought some fabric to try. My material is kind of muted, a black base with cream and gold paisley with a 24" repeat.

    I hope it's easier than it looks. I think I'm slightly confused about the initial cuts on the repeat and after. Obviously putting the hexagons together looks easy, but the prep work to line everything up looks intimidating.

    The hardest part for me was just getting all the fabric layers to line up. I realized I need to get some flat head pins tomorrow b/c my pins with the ball on top were making it harder for me! And the repeats are pretty easy...just find a spot that sticks out to you and use that as your guideline...cut that same spot each time and there ya go!
