    I have been wanting to do a OBW for some time so decided to do a practice piece before cutting into new (read expensive) fabric. Result - table runner, all done with stash on hand, including batting scraps. I think I will move on the the good stuff.
    Hope this works - my first time posting "New Topic"

    It never ceases to amaze me how different they are, compared to the original fabric. Thank you for posting both.

    Inspiring! I have decided to make a OBW for our daughter's wedding in May--but have been pretty scared to cut into the fabric. Maybe I'll try a test one first, too...!!

    This is beautiful and perfect fabric for a first go! Limited colours, large print and swirls. So many ppl make it hard on themselves by chosing a difficult fabric then get put off the whole process... Great job! Looking forward to seeing the 'real one'! :-D :-D :-D
