    I really like the colors. It is very time comsuming abd you did a good job. What size triangle did you cut. Stunning and rich looking.

    Do you have pictures of the original fabric?

    I think your OBW is gorgeous. We are always our own worst critics. Super job. The OBW is on my "to do" list. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Very pretty!!! Can't wait to do one but must finish a couple off others first. Am taking a couple of classes and have to work on those first. Too many projects - so little time and I thought that I could get sooo many things done now that I am retired.

    Both OBWs that are posted in this thread are lovely. Everyone should try at least one - they are time-consuming however. I took the plunge a month or so ago and am slowly making it work - and enjoying every step along the way!

    *Joan - you never seem to get as much done once your retired - don't ask me why .................

    Someday I'm going to do one of those. I think it must be challenging to figure out the placement of the blocks.

    Wow! Thank you so very much everyone! I'm still looking through my stash to find the original fabric so I'll post the pic when I find it.
    I think everyone should try one of these quilts, so fun to see the blocks when done. I so want to learn the tumbler blocks to go along, then I'll attempt another, but not hand sewn. This was my first hand sewn quilt and I'd much rather rely upon my machine's 1/4" seam lol. I had a real hard time with seam width consistency, but it was still fun!

    Your fabric colors are so pretty, from delicates to strong tones, it makes the OBW!

    Very nice OBW! Aren't they fun. I'm always amazed at the blocks you get from that one print. Welcome to the OBW craze.

    I have made 3 OBWs so far (My first quilting project) and I become so facinated with putting my triangles together that I get lost in them. Yours is gorgeous! Love the colors!
