    That's going to be wonderful. I wouldn't stress too much on the quilting. OBWs usually have lots going on, and the quilting doesn't show much. I usually just do a meander.

    Is this as hard as it looks to make? I love your colors. This will be beautiful. HOpe you don't have any little pets like my two that love to lay on anything I put on the floor.

    Aren't OBW's an absolute thrill to do? Love your layout. Do you plan to border it? Please show us when you finish. Great job.

    Beautiful quilt and that is a great idea! I set my hexagons with black but I like the half triangles much better.

    No pets, DH is allergic to everything that has fur! I miss pets sometimes and other times there are benefits. The hardest part is getting the fabric lined up and cut correctly, I had a few I discarded due to mistakes.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Thanks for posting that link. I have the OBW book, but a video is even better.
