    Can you post some of the original fabric? Your placement looks very nice. Distinct color groupings. Keep at it and don't get discouraged. It is looking beautiful.

    I bought just enough fabric for six repeats at a quilt store and I am going back this weekend to get some more for the trim. I dont have a handfull of scraps. This is a lot of work. Probably my last one!

    I think you are on the right track. Makes me think of coleus plants.

    You don't need to do that if you don't want to, although it is nice to see the original fabric. Just choose a coordinating fabric and use that.

    Your arrangement is beautiful. No one but you can decide whether to stop arranging or not. My first one I arranged and rearranged for more than a week. After that, I rearranged once, maybe twice and let it be. You agonize over the first one the most, then it gets easier.

    And I would like to point out what you said about no waste. There was someone on another thread somewhere who didn't like OBW's and was telling all sorts of lies about wasted fabric.

    I think that is turning out lovely. I love the colours and the placement.
    I finished my first one just in the last couple of weeks and I wasn't sure if I would do another either. Maybe one day :)

    Very pretty! I love the colors. I have a OBW on my design wall for months now. It is much harder to design for me. I have chaged it may times. If you like it, sew it quick or you will change you mind 100 times lol.

    Lovely but...don't you hate but's...My personal arrangements would mix the ones with green in more..I like balance of colors and it just seems to me that too much purple to the left and the greens in one spot...But it's all personal preference...It's really lovely...
