I like how the blocks are coming along. Don't hit the panic button, yet. It is a work in progress. Have patience, patience, patience.

Don't be discouraged, they look fine!! You just need more of them. Keep going and you'll be surprised how well it all goes together. And yes, I agree, can we see the original fabric? Hang in there, I think you'll be glad you did.

And Ewecansew, OBW's are the ones made from Hexagons. It is the Stack and Whack that is different.

It doesn't take long to get them all together. They will be done before you know it.

I don't care for these or the stack & whack...waste of time and fabric as far as I am concerned...never did see a finished one I cared for either...and the makers all complained about the left over waste of fabric...just not sure what the fascination is for these things...

...and you think it is really necessary to answer in such a cutting way? How offensive to those members who love the OBW and Stack and Whack. This message REALLY falls in the "if you have nothing nice to say...." category.

WOW! What a nasty tirade! I've read just about EVERY OBW post here on the QMB and I've never read any such thing. And having made numerous OBW's, I can tell you there is no waste with this block. Please, if you're just here to cause trouble, take it down the road, it's not welcome.

I'm with you ladies. All quilts are beautiful in their own way. If you don't like something, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF! No one here wants to hear their hard, and beautiful, work is being judged on such a negative level. Seriously - I gotta ask, why would you post that?

I have taught and or helped any number of people with their OBW. And I have yet to have anyone complain of the waste. Just the opposite. I have had a few that were not happy with the end result but that can happen with any quilt. I have done several myself as well with completely different looks on all of them ( I even did a landscape one) to each their own.

I really don't think this comment was warranted.
