OK. SO last night I saw an incredibly beautiful OBW by "stephanie" I made a comment that I wouldn't be posting any pictures. Oh mistake! :D :D

I got an instant private message from a very nice person "elizabrat" that we all share good and bad. So I promised I would post a picture. Please don't look too closely. :D

I immediately finished it so here goes. This is a piece of children's fabric (see upper corner) that I got on sale and didn't by enough of it.

Major dilemmas
1. Should I toss it or try to do something with it? I could donate it away as I have no babies but would anyone want it.
2. If I finish it how should I quilt the top?

I have another one that I started before I finished this one but I'm afraid I have the wrong fabric for that too. :-(

I would keep it for a throw or you could give it as a gift to a child. It is gorgeous

I think it looks great. I'm working on one and in the same dilemma do I toss or hide it. I'm just not too crazy about mine.

oh, I love it! Please finish it. Quilt it any way you like. Donate it to a child in need if you decide you don't wish to keep it for yourself.

I think it is beautiful. Definitely finish it and if you still don't like it give it to charity. Personally, I think it is nicely laid out and very delicate looking. I love it.

I love it. It is not as busy as most of the obw. It looks like a beautiful summer day in the garden.

Wow! That is a pretty quilt! I love how you gradually opened up the print as you went up-very pleasing.

I agree with everyone. Very pleasing arrangement. I would see if I could get a solid blue to match or coordinate and use it for an additional border, and make it a bit bigger.
I would just stitch in the ditch around the hexes. Then you could just meander the border(s). Then if you still don't like it, donate it!
I also did a small one for practice that I'm not thrilled with, but I'm still going to finish it to practice quilting a OBW if nothing else!
