    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 http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...ns-t92503.html 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
