    I'm guessing that the fabric you chose was very very challenging, but you succeeded in getting it done. Great job.

    I think now that you have the technique conquered you might consider making another one with a less challenging fabric, IMHO.

    This from someone who hasn't made one yet ..wish you were nearby, you could push me along.

    Wow! I like the fabric better as a OBW. There have been a couple people on here that mention not doing OBW again, are they that hard? Frustrating for placement? I'm wondering why not? I've considered doing one, but am rethinking the idea. What advice can you give me?

    No, I didn't think it was hard to make at all. The print of the fabric makes no difference to the actual construction of it..the procedure is the same regardless of the fabric print. The only difference is perhaps how big your blocks end up being but I think that mostly depends on the length of the repeat in the fabric pattern. It's just whether you like the resulting effect or not...lol. In my case, close up, I'm not that keen on it, although there are some interesting looking blocks in it. I just think this one looks much better in the picture than what I see in real life...lol

    I would certainly encourage you to give one a go as it is actually quite interesting to do.

    Just last week, my very handsome boyfriend made the remark "that's one thing about you artist types; you're never quite satisfied, no matter how stunning your project comes out; it will seem like there is something different you should have done to make it better".

    I think your quilt is drop-dead gorgeous! I dare you to make another one. :-)

    I think it is a TERRIFIC quilt! Good job! (I hope you make more, but I know there are so many patterns, and so little time) ;-)
