    You will do great, I have seen your work!

    I used 3 yards on the baby quilt. The fabric had a 12" repeat. I have enough fabric to do the border but I do wish I had enough to cut one more row of repeats. I use all but 2 of my blocks. Generally, there will be some blocks that don't fit in and this was cutting it close this time.

    Thank you for this information. I wasn't sure just how much fabric to buy for a baby quilt. I am really hoping that it turns out nice!! :D

    Oh Sula you will have such fun with the OBWs! Look out though, they're addictive! I'm busy on a few things at the moment and keep telling myself 'when these are done, you can do an OBW'! my reward for being a good girl and finishing up some WIPs! :D

    Ohhhhhh..... can't wait to see your OBW! ;-)

    Our guild meeting is not for another two weeks and I'm hoping like crazy there's a OBW book in the library. All the ones on here have looked so amazing.

    Oh, I have that OBW book. I don't especially like the colours they used for the demos, but the instructions are very good!
