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.

OBW = One Block Wonder. It's the way the fabric is cut so that you get six identical triangles that you put together to make a kaleidoscope. Each block is a kaleidoscope, although you don't sew them together as a complete block when you're constructing the quilt top. You make strips of half kaleidoscopes which makes it easier to sew together. Ok, now I'm sounding confusing :| If you do a search for a tutorial by Cutebuns on this board she explains it well.
