    I don't see blocks out of place. I see a beautiful OBW quilt! I would never have been brave enough to try this without the book. Great job on your quilt!

    Nice job! You did a beautiful job...I don't think I'd have the patience to do it by hand as you did.

    Looking forward to more that you will do.

    Oh, just dig in and do it! It's so much easier than it looks and it's so much fun! I think they're easier than other types of quilts.

    Thank you! It's my own design based on the Block Bender technique by Margaret Miller. You can see more of it here http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-106755-1.htm

    Basically you draw a grid of columns and rows of differing widths then create half square or rectangle triangles, which can be oriented in any direction, then get busy with the colouring pencils til you're happy. You then make plastic templates for each piece and cut each individually. The book is out of print but you can get used ones through Amazon. It's time consuming but really fun and I've got several more in the design stage. Sorry for the hijack. :-D

    WOW! It's beautiful. Sounds like a LOT of work! I made a OBW and it took forever but I LOVE IT! I may try your technique when I have a chance. Thanks for responding.
