    Wink OBW Oceans Swirls

    This is my 1st OBW..it took me awhile to arrange it ( over a Year) but I love it now !
    I am making pillow cases to match. I will send it out for quilting. It is a queen size. I started
    with 5 yards of the origional fabric....none was left except that in the borders. Below is a picture
    of the origional fabric..I hope. I couldn't get the whole quilt in one picture.
    This is my 1st time to post pictures too!
    Thanks for taking a peek : )

    Wow, that's an amazing transformation. The fabric doesn't appeal to me at all, but your quilt is truly beautiful.

    Wow! And I love that you showed the original fabric. It would be great if everyone did that.

    The colors move in a great way! Pat yourself on the back, a lot.
