    Here is my first OBW - persuaded by Kathryn I would enjoy making them - she was right!
    Pieced awaiting finishing off, mainly because I'm considering the quilting bit.
    I've already cut the next one .....

    I know what you mean, it looks difficult but it is really easy. It took me a while from the book making sure I had the fabric all lined up according to instructions - but once that is done, off you go!
    And it is fun seeing what the hexagons are going to look like.

    GORGEOUS!!! I just love these quilts. You did a great job with this one.

    I don't know how you cut that fabric up without crying. It's so pretty! LOL- I would have bought enough for two quilts so I could cut up one chunk of it and keep one. :0)

    Lisa - I love the fabric too - I only bought 2 metres as this was a practice one and then as it was the end of the bolt the owner gave me another 40 cms free. It's prettier than the picture too cos it has gold highlighting lines.
    Jaynie - addiction! I know, I know - this afternoon I've starting putting together the hex's for the next one, which is an Asian print with blossoms and cranes and oriental plates.
    Thank you Renee and Loretta.

    I Love it! I can't wait to get the book for OBW! Looks like fun, is it complicated?

    No, not complicated Suzic- the biggest quandary is once you have all the hexagons, deciding how to place them. There can be so many variations.
    The one I've just cut has more colour ways and shapes and will be a challenge to me to decide how to put it together to make the best arrangement! That's what makes it so interesting.
    I find I am looking at big prints now - wondering.......

    I love how you laid out the blocks. I think the hardest part of OBW is finding the right fabric. The one you chose came out wonderful!

    I was just going to ask, what is the best type of fabric to choose for this block? This turned out so pretty. Should one choose a very large patterned print, like here?
