Default Someone Asked About My Avatar - Here's a Larger Photo

Here's a larger photo of my avatar, and the original fabric I used to make it. I followed the tutorial found on the board here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...ns-t92503.html

I still haven't finished it. LOL! It's still a UFO.

Your top is a beauty to behold - - I love the way these quilts work. I have yet to try one, and you're definitely inspiring me!

I saw your avatar a while back and that really gave me the inspiration to make a monochromatic one (I've done 2 so far but they both had several colors to them). Blue is my favorite color so I've been looking for the perfect fabric. I really like several Timeless Treasures Asian prints but they have had a black background and I want it to be all blues.

Thanks for posting the original fabric as it is always helpful to see it and then see how it translates into the blocks. I also like how you scattered the blocks and did not cluster the lights together and the darks together as many of these are done. Great job.

Glorious!! I had thought Hawaiian fabrics would lend themselves to a OBW. Yours has a touch of Hawaiian feel to it. I love being able to see the original fabric. I made a pillow sham out of my original fabric for one of mine.

I love your OBW! Very well done. It's always amazing how the fabric turns out into those beautiful blocks.

Aw, thanks, y'all!

I was undecided for the longest time about how to arrange the blocks. Usually OBW blocks are laid out by color (lights to darks), but I finally decided to mix them up. It reminds me of raindrops hitting the water, making random ripples.

Beautiful quilt. Funny, when I first saw the quilt I thought snow or ice crystals. Then saw the original fabric and it is a tropical scene.
