    My first OBW quilt (in process). I'd never heard of such a thing until I started reading here a couple of weeks ago. :lol: I have to say ... I *love* this method of quilting! :thumbup: The "hardest" part was pinning the fabric before cutting it, but it wasn't really HARD hard. Just a little time-consuming is all. The second pic is the original fabric.

    I think I'm going to put a black border around it, followed by a border of the original fabric.

    More pics to follow shortly.

    Sounds like a good border idea to me. This is one of those patterns I keep on the back burner to get to one day.

    And here's a queen-size quilt I'm working on for our bedroom, which is purple and green. Strange combination, huh? It actually started out as a joke. We were trying to decide what color to paint the bedroom, and couldn't make up our minds. So I jokingly suggested that we paint it purple and green. And we did! :lol:

    The quilt is paper-pieced, and is called Interwoven Diamonds. The pattern came from the Quilter's Cache website.

    Here's a scrappy quilt I made a few years ago for my dad. I used patriotic prints. The center is the emblem for the U.S. Army. My dad served in Vietnam. In fact, I was born when he was over there.

    Last pic for now. This one's just a simple quilt that I'll probably donate to Project Linus, which I also learned about through this forum. :thumbup: It's got dogs and cats on it (flannel), and the batik is regular cotton. It's nothing fancy, but it got rid of some scraps. ;)

    Thanks, everyone!

    On cutting the dolphin fabric ...

    Hubby picked it out for me at Walmart, knowing I'd love the pattern. He bought the rest of the bolt, 6+ yards.

    The next thing you know, he's on the phone with his mom, "complaining" how he spent $26 on fabric only to have me cut most of it up into 3" triangles! :lol:

    (He wasn't really complaining, but admitted he was leery of how the quilt would turn out. He shushed when he saw the outcome! :lol: )

    It's great to have a hubby who supports my habits ... er ... hobbies! :thumbup:
