    For those who have done the OBW.. what do you think of this fabric to make one? I just got back from Joanns and I saw this.. had a 50% off coupon.. for one cut of regular priced fabric.. so this was originally 9.99.. then I had a 20% off coupon for the whole order on top of that.. so I got 6 yards and wound up spending about $24 for it.. how did I do?

    bargain from Joanns

    Your first fabric looks like it will make a really interesting OBW - nice variation and saturated, crisp colours. Have fun with it!

    I think that first fabric would make a wonderful OBW. I've done a few and I would use that fabric.

    I agree!! Hope you plan on posting pics again after you start it. I can't wait to see how that one turns out.

    #1 fabric was posted by someone else, yesterday, I think? Yes! it should make for a lovely OBW. I'm pretty sure the repeat spacings were far enough apart ... what is the distance?

    #2 grouping .... love that fabric!! As you said, very antique looking and will be lovely.

    #2 large floral ... what is the repeat on it? If large, it would be a beautiful OBW candidate as well! :)

    That is so funny, I went to Joanns yesterday and bought the exact same fabric for the exact same pattern. See great minds do think alike. Iam going to watch this board to see what everyone says.

    So are you done with the OBW yet? :lol:

    All kidding aside, it's a fabulous fabric for OBW.

    Pinwheels is my favorite block and I love the colors you choose! Do you have a pattern in mind? If not, may I suggest doing a sashing in the light color around them all so the pinwheels will pop!

    It has areas of colors that are different, an important thing in a OBW. I love the other fabric too, very Victorian looking
