    The six sided hexagons won't turn into a square by sewing triangles on the corners. If I take an additional identical triangle and sew it to two opposite corners I will get a "block" that is shaped similar to a parallelogram.

    At least that is all that I could come up with...lol

    Ok, here are some of my blocks on a wall. I think when I take them out I just get so overwhelmed because I end up with so many colors on each block that it is hard for me to decide how to transition.

    The picture flipped. that brown is the top of door frame

    Doesn't that tablecloth and hanger thing work great? lol, Wow, your original fabric must have been beautiful. What great colors in your blocks. I think it's amazing with these OBWs how simply turning the photo changes the look so much. I really like how it looks with the door frame to the left. Smiles

    Julie, your blocks are beautiful! Stay with it, and you will be happy with the results. It IS a bit daunting to see all your choices! You are on your way.

    I know I'm not in this OBW sew along so after this I will quit posting my pics, but I wanted to show you what I came up with.

    If I hadn't found this thread these would probably still be laying in a pile. I'm not going to dwell on them long. I'm going to spend a day or so looking and rearranging and then SEW THIS PUPPY UP!!!! (Saturday or Sunday)

    Thanks for being so helpful and supportive :thumbup:

    Julie, I love your final layout! I think it looks fantastic! You know you can also just use 1/2 the hex and but it up to another 1/2 hex horizontally and make a border with it...I did that for an IRR last year. I think it turned out great too.

    We are not exclusionary here! You have a beautiful OBW - - just happen to be a bit ahead of others, but that is sort of what adds dimension to our lives. You keep on posting pictures and, who knows? You may decide to do another one

    Thanks for the good luck wishes, when I ordered mine from Joannes they said 14-18 business days but it only took 5 days, so hopefully it won't take that long for yours.

    Good luck though I'm sure you don't need it!

    Daisey I hope they get a wriggle on with your fabric! What are they doing, picking the cotton to order? :shock: :lol:
