    I had listed several of these panels in the classifieds and they didn't sell. so, I thought, why couldn't you stack panels just like you would fabric repeats and make an OBW or a Kelidescope out of it. Here is what happened. What do you think about the transformation?

    I think it is turning out pretty cool. Wonder what the old Indian woman will look like when she gets whacked? hehehe!

    I'd call that "outside of the box". The colors are wonderful and make a great OBW!!

    I like it better as a OBW also. It will be a great quilt in those colors.

    Incredible transformation. I wouldn't of purchased the pannels either. But what you did with them is awsome !!
    I will have to get the directions on OBW and give it try.

    Oh yea. and then some. I bought a whole bolt of these one time. So, I can make several. I gave my sister one of them. she might want more when I show her what I did. she has a large room that is devoted to western and southwestern stuff. It is amazing!!
