    Vortex - A One Block Wonder (OBW) revisited

    I posted a picture of the quilt top a few weeks ago, then had computer issues and was unable to post a picture of the original fabric. Hopefully my computer issues are resolved. I have had this quilted by a wonderful Long Arm Quilter and will now post pictures of the front and back. The first 2 pictures are of the back. The third picture is of the front and I will try to post another 2 pictures of the front in a second thread.

    Love the quilt, but where is the original fabric? I love to see OBWs and where they came from. I have one on my design board right now (been there since before Christmas), but I've been working on other quilts.

    The first 2 pictures show the original fabric used on the back of the quilt. It was in panel strips featuring fox, turtles, cats, birds etc.
