    I just received my OBW book!! I am so excited to make these blocks! Turns out it is pretty easy once the fabric is lined up, but I had a time of lining it up bc one side of the fabric wasn't a perfect match to the other side so they are a touch off. Still, I really enjoyed the entire process and seeing the different design each one makes. I should have cut them smaller, then I would have had more of a variety, but it's a learning process, right?

    Thanks to all of you who have made these and told me about the book!! I would have never known otherwise. Thanks for looking.

    Gosh those are pretty! I still can't believe how many different looks you can get out of a piece of fabric.

    Great job - I think the chickadee is the set I like best.

    Thank you! Now I have to afford 4 - 6 more yards of fabric. I looked at another fabric I have earmarked for OBWs and figured out that I was trying to match the bird fabric going the wrong way. So the next ones should match up more accurately. Glad I saw the mistake!!
