    Just checking in hoping to see some pics ladies but it looks like you're all out in JoAnn's/Hancocks/Walmart looking for the fabric! :lol:

    I have this fabric. I bought it 2-3 months ago at Hancocks with a OBW in mind. I even bought some bright turquoise and sort of brown for possible borders at the same time. And it has been waiting on the shelf ever since but I did look at it yesterday. I have promised myself that I will finish some others before I start something new but will be watching this thread for your progress. Quilt on!

    OK I've finished piecing all my blocks into halves and here's my initial layout. This won't be the final one by any means - I like to leave them up on the wall to ferment for a while, changing the odd block now and then as I pass. I'm even thinking I might turn the whole thing through 180 degrees so it's portrait rather than landscape - my OBWs often come out this shape and I finally realised that it's because that's as far as I can reach! So I might get the step ladder out. Anyway, wanted to share where I was at.

    I'm sorry the picture is so dark - my camera died and this is DH's and his flash isn't very good!

    Now I'm waiting to see some other ppls! :-D

    Love the way it is coming together. Hopeing to start mine this afternoon. I did buy some practice fabric and I think I'll start with that since I hate to wreck this fabric. Won't be able to post pics until tomorrow since I only have an iPad at home.

    I bought this fabric at joanns yesterday. They only had 4 1/2 yards so I ordered a whole bolt, I might have extra so I might be willing to sell the extra. If you click on the download it will open a pdf where I scanned the end of the bolt for the information. Just be sure to scroll down on the pdf to see the info. You may be able to print this and take it into joanns and have some ordered if you can't find it.

    Thank you I stumbled on this thread and I thought OMGosh how beautiful I have to do it!! But I went to 3 joanns before I found one that had it, and so many others had expressed interest but couldn't find the fabric so I thought maybe this would help someone. I am always willing to be the enabler!!

    At the moment it would come out at around 42" x 48" but the more I look at it, the more I want it tall and skinny! Probably because I'm on a diet myself! LOL If only it were as easy to change my body's layout! Right, I'm going to get the step ladders out and do some fiddling.

    Love how it is looking so far K! Are you going to use any cubes in this one? Now be careful on that step ladder!

    Don't know yet about the cubes, I have a germ of an idea involving applique... and as for the ladder, yes, I was careful! It's now tall and skinny (unlike its creator!) I'll take another pic later, got more juggling to do yet! :D

    How fantastic! It will be interesting to see how many different blocks can be achieved from one fabric, depending on where you start to cut each strip from on the repeat!!

    Looking forward to seeing all your progress soon!!

    I love the applique on top of the OBW (like your tri)...I started last year appliqueing on top of pieced stuff....I love the added dimension, so you GO girl!

    Oh...and if you get the "right" type of mirror...you can be tall and skinny too! :lol:

    Yeah right, like a funhouse mirror - knowing me, I'd end up just looking plain weird! But anyway, another 3 lbs off when I got on the scales this morning so that's OK! Anyway, back to the OBW - re the applique, I was thinking of fixing the shapes to fusible batting before sewing them on to make them pop even more. Like my seagull. Anyway, that's in the future, gosh don't I ramble on sometimes! Anyway, here's my first tall and skinny layout and I must say I like it better. Now it will ferment for a while and I'll sit back and watch for the other ladies' pics! :-D
