    I wash ALL my fabrics before cutting. This is for two reasons: because I'm scared it will shrink unevenly and because I also make medieval costumes and always wash clothing fabric to shrink it. That way, all the fabrics in my collection are prewashed/shrunk and I don't have to wonder. I like to use spray starch to keep the fabrics stiffer while cutting.

    I love OBSs, and yours is gorgeous! I hope you have enough of the original fabric to put on the back or use as a border.

    Wow! That turned out so cool! I can't figure out the right fabric. And I have a stash you wouldn't believe. Great job!

    Gorgeous, I love the bright colors. As far as quilting it goes, just remember not to try any design that's very detailed. You won't be able to see much of the stitching because the colors of your blocks is so busy. Just stitch it enough to hold the batting in place.

    love the setting! takes it to art status. running out of words, different from what others have said, but meaning the same thing. it is beautifully done, with movement, balance and surprise. well done! can't wait to see it finished!!
