What I like is that it keeps the motion and not draw me to one particular spot or hex in the quilt.

    There was a thread just in the last day or two as to how to quilt OBWs and some good suggestions. I'll see if I can find it and will put the link here too. Plus, I'll see if I can get some better pics of the actual quilting to post for you to see.

    Do you have yours posted ... I'd love to see it.
    (and if you don't ... be sure to, and let me know the link!)
    THANKS!!!!!
    Hi Quilt E, I posted it here: A group OBW with the Floral Master Fabric and also as a new thread in Photos today. I will look for the thread you mentioned about quilting OBW's. Thanks for your help!!

    Very pretty!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Thanks! I already found your new thread and commented.
    Glad that someone found the other thread with ideas for you.
    There's a lot of good possibilities there, that from looking at your blog, I know they would not be a challenge for you!!

    Contrary to what some have said, IMHO there are some detailed quilting designs that can work very effectively with a OBW. I'm sure you'll come up with a great way to enhance your already wonderful quilt.

    Thanks UBe ... while not an official tutorial, I gave a word description about the how to earlier in this thread. I did the prototype candlemat and then did some more fiddling when I went to do the quilt itself.
