    They are very much like Kaleidescopes, you stack your fabric though and then cut strips to cut your triangles were as Kaleidescopes you pick and choose where you are going to cut to get a certain look.

    They are pretty easy, the hardest part was lining up the fabric.

    Have to credit Jan with that one - though it did mean the dreaded Y seams! :shock: It was a bit bumpity and lumpity, even after a couple of times ripping and resewing but I just quilted that part to h-e-double toothpicks and it looked fine! I'm on pins and needles to hear that she's got it - she has no idea it's coming! :D

    I so enjoy all these threads from other quilters......but when you sent this one, I wasn't much into the them (hadn't yet found them back then !!!!)

    and I was just reading about your OBWs and someone posted this thread ....I immediately went into it and your quilts are absolutely beautiful.

    I have your doggie fabric ...used for a couple dogs in the family but would never have thought to use it for a OBW....It's really great !!!

    Back to why I am writing...
    I have bought the book, bought three different fabrics, and really want to do one .........BUT........
    the book is on the shelf, the fabric in the closet and I am beside myself with wondering (good work to use here !!!!) if I would be able to do this pattern.

    Is it very difficult? I will bring all the prep to Florida with me when I leave in a couple weeks and will make myself accept this challenge.

    I will have all the time while there for the winter and should be able to accomplish something.....hopefully, a OBW.

    Again, you quilts are beautiful.......

    MaryJane.......from NJ......right along the Atlantic coast.

    MaryJane - no it's really NOT difficult. The main thing is to be organised with your blocks so you don't get them muddled. A design wall is ideal otherwise the floor in a spare room where they can be undisturbed for a while would work just as well. Just follow through the instructions in the book. I had it open at the side of me the first couple of times and used it like a manual. Any problems with anything, feel free to give me a shout! They're addictive though - I've got two more tops sitting upstairs now waiting to be quilted! :-D

    Thanks K, I will be sure to holler all the way to France when I get baffled !!!!
    but I am promising myself that I will do one this coming winter and I will send you a pic when completed..thanks so much for the encouragement.

    I did hear that a friend in Florida is going to be giving a class in a month or so.so I might just be one of her students..........thanks again....MaryJane

    I'm wanting to make a OBQ .What brand 60degree
    ruler do you use? Someone posted they used one that left all the points
    cut off, so they ended up with a hole in the center of their blocks.

    I'd be so lost if that happened! Have fabric ordered & need to find the 1st book,plus the right type ruler. Thanks for any info.

    Pat, Kathryn is travelling at the moment - but the book recommends the Clearview 6" 60degree triangle - and I know she uses that one because she asked me where I got mine from.
