    Question How to sew OBW's together

    I have found tutorials on making OBW blocks, but how do you sew them together?

    I will see if I can find the thread about it...
    I read you are supposed to keep the blocks as half hexes, piece the halves in strips, then join the strips to complete the blocks.

    Dixie_fried you are correct. Makes it so simple but pin, pin, pin, so everything matches up correctly. I used my extras to go around the bottom of a purchased pillow case like scallops. Look so pretty.

    If you look at the first post OBW tutorial by Cutebuns the whole tutorial has been condensed, with lots of pictures for those of us that are visual learners
    The biggest risk is the one not taken
