    Hi..this is my first OBW. I enjoyed making it but I think a better choice of fabric may have resulted in a nicer quilt. This one is a bit busy. But being my first, I didn't really have a lot of idea what to look for. Don't know if I'll rush and do another...but who knows?..lol. I followed Cutebun's tut and it was quite easy to follow. Thanks Cutebun

    I think that looks even more like a real kaleidoscope than a OBW usually does.

    Great choice of fabric.

    I think it turned out very nice. I'm sure you were amazed with each new square. I have never done a OBW, it looks hard.
    Happy Quilting. :D

    That turned out great. So the secret of obw is to have the wildest material you can find!

    the fabric may have been a tad busy, but I think that gives you many more varied blocks. It turned out very well, in my opinion. Please don't make it your last.

    For the first OBW quilt I think you did a fantastic job. Your next one will be even better because you will know what you want and don't want to do.
