    Aren't most OBWs busy? I find them all beautiful! Maybe someday I'll make one. Yours is stunning! Fab work!

    It's not quite as busy as you think for an OBW. You did a wonderful job!

    The blocks turned out so different than the original. Didn't realize there was so much blue in the fabric. This is a beautiful quilt.

    Ok - What makes this pretty quilt a OBW? What did you do to get it to look the way it does?

    I love the OBW quilts and the bargello quilts, but they scare the daylights out of me. One of these days I'm going to stiffen up my backbone and try to make one.

    OK, I'm with Jan C. above. What is OBW and what is the "idea", "signifancy", or whatever behind it. I've been quilting for years, but am still tryig to learn the new jargon. Thanks for any help. BTW (see, got that one) love the quilt.

    This a good-looking quilt. Don't think "busy," think "abstract!" OBW's are sort of like colorwash quilts--of another stripe. Different, and not to be evaluated like "traditional" designs. It's their nature, in other words, to "dance!"

    Looks good to me! I love that it looks like a kalidascope. They were so much fun as a kid to look through the eye piece and see the changing pattern. That is what you have done with this quilt. Great Job!

    I think it turned out just the way it's supposed to. The busier the fabric the more variations possible. Very nice quilting job too.

    Oh no! Not to busy at all. Fantastic hardly expresses how wonderful I think your quilt is. It could live at my house quite comfortably.
