    I've searched the board for ideas to do my first OBW and then chose this colorful daylily fabric. But, on the design board, I think this pattern is too small to be effective as OBW and to add to that I cut my triangles a little bigger than called for. Also, I like the OBWs with more color variations. So I tried some solid triangles to break it up, totally changing the design to more of a keleidoscope. Which way do you think I should go?

    I really like it with the blue triangles added, it sets off the blocks very nicely :D:D:D

    I love the triangles, but that is because I always lean towards contrast.

    I like the second one a bit more but I think that they are both very expressive and creative, well done!
