    Have you thought of using some metallic thread among the flowers? If that were mine I would want some subtle quilting to bring out the garden effect while staying "hidden" enough to not detract from the image of a garden...that's where the thought of using metallic came in for me.

    Sure you could. It's actually a VERY easy pattern once you understand the concept :)

    Drew, A OBW is definately one of those "looks hard, is really easy" patterns. Most quilters I know who have made one, go on and make several because they are so much fun, and EASY! I hope you will give it a try one of these days.

    OBW's are addictive. You really arranged your blocks beautifully and chose a good fabric too.

    I found better photos last night of the original fabric, and thought some of you might be interested in seeing them. :)

    Yes, I made one last year for my grandson's twin bed. I'm not sure I will ever make another one. I had it hanging on the wall for month's before I finished it. Couldn't decide on the pattern. But I think they are pretty.

    this looks like a water color, so gorgeous. I'd love to see what the starting fabric looked like.

    I really love the way you used your original fabric in the outer border! It looks great! I have two books and the ruler to make one of these - I am now in search of the perfect fabric. Hope mine turns out half as nice as this!
