    you be the judge.

    I love a long skirt. I was thinking of making a skirt out of OBW squares! Would that be fabulous? or not

    I'm new, so I searched OBW. It is One Block Wonders everyone in case you had the same question? I think that is just a great IDEA!

    Sounds like a neat idea. I have some long skirts that I wear with high boots (about 10 inches high) to protect my weak ankle. When wearing boots the skirt should be long enough to cover the top of the boots.

    A OBW would be neat in denim or muslim or suede, with more or less matching shirts.

    I have made 2 square dance dresses using quilt patterns for the skirt. I love it.
