    I didn't realize how much fun and mesmerizing making the OBW quilt was going to be! I am totally obsessed...can't stop moving and rearranging my hexagons, I am planning cubes...borders, OMG...somebody needs to tell me to calm down, :lol:!!! I started yesterday and I have all my half hexagons pieced, my layout mostly arranged...now just need a day to make more cubes...and a day to put it together! Why, oh why do i need to work??I probably shouldn't think about making another OBW any time soon until I gain my sanity :lol: :mrgreen: :shock:

    Deep breaths, save some energy for tomorrow, you have another big day ahead. Need rest so you can concentrate and retain all info you learn, don't forget to take your notebook and pen so you can write down each step. AND... should you need someone to make the next OBW for how about ME ME ME
    :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: Have fun tomorrow drive safe and don't forget to tell us all about your experience ;) :mrgreen: :lol: :mrgreen:

    That's the best thing about them - look complicated, but are really very easy, especially working from the One Block Wonder books.
