    Lilac OBW hexes and octagons

    I made 2 OBW's (One Block Wonders) out of one fabric. One is hexagons and one is octagons. There was a challenge on the fb OBW page and luckily I was already in the middle of one so I was ahead of the game. I love lilacs! And my daughters MIL wanted one so I bought enough fabric for 2. She got the octagons and I have just finished the hexagon one. These are both quilted by my favorite quilter Lizze @Frolickingthreads.com.

    That's so gorgeous! I"m going to take a OBW class in Dec. I hope mine comes out half as pretty as yours. The quilting is awesome, too.

    I searched high and low for more so I could border the heart. I couldn't find any more.

    Both quilts are gorgeous! I'd never have thought to pick that fabric for a OBW - but I will now! Thank you so much for sharing your work with us.
