    I just finished this OBW. I only had enough for one set of repeats, so I had to add on the sides with 4-patch posies, and whole dragon hex's.

    oooOOOOO Gai that is stunning. Wonderful fabric and colours, and fabulous OBW! There is just so much interest in those blocks... I love the borders, and especially the whole dragon hex's. You can tell I like it!

    You need six repeats. I forget how much of the original fabric I had. I had either three or four yards, and ended up with 11 repeats. :hunf: :lol: That's why I added on the 4patch posies.
