Come on Brenda. I double dog dare you!  I'll continue to struggle with my whale OBW if you get started with your OBW project.

I will TRY to post progress, maybe as early as Sunday. A

I finally came up with a layout I like. Still a work in progress. I want to use solid or tone on tone blue as the outer hex's and maybe use them to create an uneven layout. Much tweaking left to do but at least I'm encouraged to finish it.

Marg, I agree with you.  I have triangles cut, I have a panel to put them around, and here I sit...will probably have them for awile...BUT, I do intend to make one of these beautiful OBWs.

Bruce is a well known artist in the OBW world . Have you seen the prices on his pieces? He is a very sweet guy though.

I did look at the ones for sale. WOW!!! For us quilters, it would be more fun making our own- and a whole lot cheaper ;-). We could have several!

Just watched the interview of Bruce Seeds in Sewing with Nancy. On idea I liked was that he puts a piece of the original fabric in the backing of the quilt. The obw is on my bucket list and I think I have the fabric I would use--one day.

I was just looking at his Photo Gallery...OMG incredible beauties and WOW huge $ he gets for them.  Such talent.  I just found one of his, SNOW DAY, that is what I'd love my already cut out panels to even slightly resemble.  The colors in my monochromatic panels and the fabric I got to compliment it  remind me of the colors in Snow Day.  I have all the pieces cut out...Still a hope for a someday finish of my OBW.

All I can say is WOW! All are wonderful works of art but I think my favorite was the Reef. Loved the bright colors.

Marg, I agree.  I can't stop looking at his beautiful quilts.  I KNOW mine will never be that beautiful.  If I could have anything close to as beautiful I would be happy, ECSTATIC!!!

Marg, you will do great. It’s really not hard. But beware. It’s very addicting! Especially if you love to create! It’s my favorite quilt to make just because it’s an original. No two are alike! Your fabric choice is the main thing!! Can’t wait to see what you do! Show us your fabric when you chose it. I have about twelve fabrics now just waiting to be created!!! Love it
