    Beautiful quilt -- love the colors!! I did a OBW and did not like it so I put contrasting triangles to make stars -- like it much better (I never can follow directions -- sigh).

    I sooo feel your pain seeing the "wind damage." With me, it's usually a cat. The quilt came out lovely. Very soothing colors.

    That is a beautiful quilt. The colors are outstanding and while there is plenty of movement in the quilt it is rather quite calming.

    Oh...I know your frustration level with the machine. I have been there myself. And sometimes it is just better to walk away, you sure don't want to mess up your quilt.However, it looks like it turned out beautifully! Great job at hanging in there.

    The fabric worked very well for this pattern.
    Very soft and feminine looking.

    Very cool pattern. What does OBW stand for?

    Oh, no! That first picture probably should have been titled "Dismay". I bet you had quite a time trying to match up all the jumbled hex halves.

    I certainly admire your tenacity! I have just ordered the fabric for my OBW - I hope mine turns out as nice as yours certainly has.
