    Jenniky.........I love this block too, you have done an amazing job making it. Now I am envious, did you use the same template as you did for your original Dresden Plate? It looks similar to a OBW pattern.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Not sure what OBW stands for... I used a different template and layered all of the fabric layered perfectly on their repeats.... tacked them in place and then cut stacks of 12 blades.
    Have an awesome day!

    OBW is short for One Block Wonder. It is the very same way that you have made your second Dresden plate. I just love the way it turns out when you stack your fabric & cut it this way.

    Jenniky, I love your paisley block. Like Sulabug said it sure looks like a OBW.
    djmat, I like your block. I think it has a modern appearance. Spent yesterday at the ball field watching grandson play so today I play!

    Not very fond of Steeler Nation colors, thought daughter would want more colors than yellow, black, grey & white in this quilt. I have to add 12 more ugly blocks to make the queen layout that she wants. Glad I'm halfway through!
    At least I'm learning new techniques. Thanks, Jen!!!

    Djamat - The colors are nice, just don't think of them as Steelers colors.

    Thimblebug I like the floating planet. It's a happy block.

    I'm cheating a little, this is the one I did for the Craftsy class last year I still haven't done anything with it. I may make another one in a different style. I used scraps for the blades, the pepper fabric was from a shirt I made my DH last year also.

    WOW you're all so fast!

    Jenniky, I love your paisley block!
    Djamat, I don't see anything ugly, I love it!
    Thimblebug, yours is beautiful too! Like Dedemac said, it's floating!
    Dedemac, I love your different style. It looks like it's rotating!

    Oh I understand then.... Hard to work with colors you are not fond of. I have experienced the same.
    Have an awesome day!

    These blocks are awesome! Can't decide it I want the points or rounded. I did pull out a main fabric that I've been saving & only have a small amount of. I plan to use it for every other blade. Maybe I can start today

    Dedemac, I didn't even notice it's "floating" I was so concentrating on getting a motif centered on the circle....

    This is neat, it looks like a spinning windmill.
