    Three more mini OBWs, made from strip scrap ends and a few leftover blocks taken apart and recut. These are all made from the same fabric, which is an Asian inspired print of koi and blossoms.
    They each measure 12ins x 13ins. I did alot of outlining fmq on the flowers etc and fish scales - easier to see on the second one as I used gold metallic thread for it.
    Fun to make and easy to quilt!

    This is the original fabric and obw quilt I used the scraps from

    Those are beautiful , How big of triangles did you use? These would be great to put all together into a big quilt.

    Thanks, the triangles are cut at 2ins and the hexagons are 2-5/8ins diameter finished.

    I usually don't like OBWs, but the way you did them is beautiful!

    Beautiful workmanship .... and your project design is so unique.
    Great for table toppers or wallhangings... and of course, gifting!
    Will you be selling any?

    They are all from the same fabric which was a 24in repeat and a very varied print - it's shown in the link I put in before the pictures :D

    Thank you! I've made a few now, and have sold four of them - one lady bought three to give as gifts to family & friends for birthdays.
    Here are two more I posted previously

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-139630-1.htm

    I made the first ones to hang myself as they don't take up much space but now I am going to have to cut more OBWs just to get the scraps :lol:
