    OBW does not have any setting squares or triangles.
    It used the Stack and Wack method to cut the triangles.
    I have done a Stack and Wack hexagon quilt, where I sewed triangles on two opposite sides to form a diamond shape.
    I have also done 8-pointed stars with the Stack and Wack in various sizes. I am sewing the blocks into a jacket.

    They usually have a different amount of pieces per block and shapes too.

    OBW are sewn together, with no additional pieces added. These are all hexagon shaped blocks.
    S&W can be different shapes within the block and usually have corner pieces added to them to make them square. :D:D:D
