    I've now finished the quilting on latest OBW. The body of the quilt is just a meander in dark red, and the borders are done in orange, red, and pale yellow - I don't think the colours have come out too well because of the light. Quilting motif not too even as I did it freehand - but okay from a distance! Finished size is approx 53ins x 49ins. Just have to put a sleeve on now to hang it.

    I've been looking today for more fabric for another obw, and currently have the "shortlist" down to about 20 - there are so many beautiful fabrics out there - it's all decisions!! Everyone is so right about "the addiction" of these.

    Buy them all, you know you want to, I want tell 'im indoors! :mrgreen:

    Your quilting on the border is amazing, even for you! Can't wait to come and see it in real life. You better put a security tag on it or it might accidentally fall into my bag!

    I really like the way you worked in the 3-D blocks. It really adds to the overall effect, and makes your eyes keep moving around. I am just getting started into watching for movement in quilts, so thanks for providing a great example.

    I like how you pulled the orange and red out to the border with your thread choice for your feather design in the border. The quilt is absolutely wonderful!

    Great job! I have one in the closet, and there it sits. Everyone I've seen I like but not mine> I'll post sometime and let you all look at it. Yours is very attractive. I like the border.

    That turned out great. I often quilt with multicolored thread. I never thought about using different colors for different parts of the design. What a brillant idea.

    Why don't you like it JCL? Please post it. It's funny because I didn't like this one much until it was altogether, because it's not the colours I would normally go for. I am sure we will all like yours.
