    I am not finished yet with borders and quilting and binding, however the hard part is finished.

    It looks great but I can see why you are tired of making blocks. That is a loooot of OBW blocks. I really like the green border that accents the green in the blocks. Have a break and when you see it again, you'll love it!

    I have made 2 OBW and each time I get tired of if part way through, but then later I want to see some fabric that I think would look good as a OBW and there I go again....The second one was more fun than the first because I know what to expect. I hear you though >...Each of us has our likes and yours is apparently not this one!

    It's very pretty but I do understand it was tedious for you. Now that you've come this far, feel proud!

    OMG. That is gorgeous. But I know what you mean about getting tired of working on it. Take a break & see if that helps. Thanks for sharing.

    Very Nice! I know all about your frustration. I really like the results from the first one I made and would love to do another but I have to get past the angst of how difficult and tiresome the assembly was.
