    This Fabric spoke to me!

    I went to Wallmart the other day and this was on the clearance rack, well it said please help me become something beautiful so I took six yards with every intention of making a OBW, cut some triangles of course used the wrong templet and had to cut them a tad smaller with the right trangle 60 degree. after moving around some hexes I thought I would try to put spacers in ,my first time doing this and boy am I happy with what I have so far, I just had to share, Hope you like my own ugly challenge. I still have many more to cut and make but just wanted to share what I had so far.

    I'm always amazed at how a fabric can change by just the way you cut it up and sew it back together. Your OBW is looking great!

    Boy! It just goes to show any ugly fabric can become a beautiful piece of art! I marvel at all you who can make a OBW, especially when you have the vision to pick an ugly fabric knowing how it will transform!

    You did turn it into something very beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Thanks for the nice replys, after work today I will add more on and show the results as it grows. And for all who would like to make one but never did there are tons of tutes on the internet to show you how just make sure you have a 60 degree triange or you will be recuting like I have done. Have a nice day and thanks again for looking.

    That is going to turn out great. I think the black really adds to the design.
