    Hi everyone! Here's another OBW I just finished. I call it 'Fanning the Flames' because it reminds me of fire plus it amuses me to think up names for these! Doesn't take much... :mrgreen:

    I'm also posting a picture of the original fabric. For OBW fans who like to know the details - the repeat was 12", I used a single repeat and cut the strips at 3 3/4" wide and the finished quilt is 44" x 42". I wanted something fairly small to practice FMQ. Thank you for looking. :-D

    I love it! Great colours also! May I just ask what OBW stands for? Another newbie question...

    Thanks everyone! Stummel, check out the Virtual Section here on the board to see more about OBWs - there's a link highlighted in blue at the bottom left of the page. Always glad to recruit more victims to the OBW obsession! LOL

    Oh that's beautiful. I don't even want to know how you gals make these quilts--I just want to keep seeing them.

    I like the name. I get naming them. :wink:

    Mine is carrots too! When I was little, if there weren't any on my plate, I'd scowl and say to my Mum 'no orange?!' I thought a plate looked plain boring without some carrots on there! We nearly always have carrots plus a greeny cos it's good for us! :mrgreen:

    I'm thinking we all need to go to Karla's house, hug on some horses and learn OBW. When do you think you can get a flight, K???

    K- another gorgeous quilt!! You need to come to the states and give us lessons or at least a kick in the butt to make one. Afraid to start!

    Oh crap....now I'm drooling over another one!!! K, I just love how your "whip" these out! I'm just plain ole' :mrgreen: Congrats on your new baby too....I saw where you got him/her??? , but I don't think I told you I was excited for you.

    Thanks for sharing the fabric info on this one...I might just have to find some fab...you know so I can stick it in my stash and pet it telling it that "someday" it will grow up to be a OBW.... :roll: :lol:
