    I have fabric for another one. This fabric is pretty much just black and cream and has repeats of various jungle animals, including big cats, elephants, etc. I think it will make a nice monochromatic OBW, at least I hope it does! LOL

    I have all three OBW books sitting right here. Got them all from the library. And thanks for reminding me, I have to renew them again tomorrow. Love the quilts, and love yours.

    It takes six repeats of the fabric pattern to make the OBW. You stack the fabric so that the pattern is identical in each layer. Then you cut strips, typically 3.5 inches, then cut the strip layers into 60 degree triangles. Each triangle will be identical, making the kaleidoscope pattern.

    I also love OBW. I am on my second. Well, it's a piecing project right now. But I see very many in my future! Great work on yours.

    Beautiful! I love the way you've placed the blocks - like flowers against a summer sky. And this thread is now IN the aforementioned Virtual Section. :wink: :D

    I first saw OBW quilts on this board & became obsessed. I bought the books (online from England for $30 total) and found fabric I wanted to use. I can't wait to start them. Yours is just beautiful; very nice work.

    Yours is stunning. I made one, Cutebuns guided enthusiasts through the whole process. Unfortunately, I have not quited and bound it yet. I don't know how to quilt it.

    Your OBW is beautiful! I have a paisley print to make mine with. May not start working on it until November at our quilt group.{or may start cutting them out just before then}

    Thank you. That's the problem I'm running into; I have no idea how I want to quilt it :roll:

    My LQS has a sample for a class done with gold fish on a blue backgroud. It is mostly blue with some gold touches and is absolutely beautiful.
