The OBWE quilt is growing. If you like to be creative and experiment and don't know what you are going to get until you put it together, i.e. you mystery quilt people, then you would like making this quilt.
One note about fabric. The saturation of color from my holy fabric-Ricki Timms material 24.00 a yard at the time it was for sale-I think it's more now-really stands up to time. I got it several years ago and my goodness it is still bold. The yellow hollow cube on the left side is "regular" quilt material, from a LQS in town called Among Friends. I probably paid 8 to 9 dollars a yard there. It is no slouch fabric, except when put in a quilt with an extremely expensive, hand dyed fabric. The other yellow hollow cube in the middle is also Ricki Timms fabric.
Oh well, my quilting goes on and my scrap can runneth over!

But, I did get one of the tumbling blocks done-at least to the point that you need to be to sew rows of blocks.
This a really nice quilt using the same pattern that won second place at our State Fair. It should have won a blue ribbon. I've got a long way to go!

Well, the background has begun. This is going to have floating cubes in it. I've got some holy fabric I'm going to cut up and use in it. It's some lovely hand dyed fabric from Ricki Timms. The background is really muddled and I think it need something with a strong contrast. We'll see.
I'm going to try to use some of my holy fabric for the hollow cubes-you know that fabric you bought because you just loved it and like looking at it, dare I say worship? Naaah! Just really like it. but, haven't found any use for it. I'm planning on working on cubes tomorrow.
