    I tried a stack and whack before, it's still unfinished. I tried with triangles between the blocks and had trouble with the points matching up. I think I'll take it apart and just sew the blocks together. Maybe third time will be the charm.

    The one piece of advice I have on this wonderful tute is to starch, starch, starch. Handle as little as possible and starch.

    I'm working on finishing my original now. Have a friend that's really wanting it. Will post when I get it finished, my friend.

    okay so after you sew the hexagon, how do you make the rest of the block so it all comes out square with the hexagon in the middle

    The blocks are not square. They stay hexagon. You could make then square if you wanted but the OBW uses them as hexagon. To make the top square you either add pieces along the side or cut the points off of two edges. You only use half the block on the other two making it flat or add half blocks of the border fabric.

    There is no y seams. The block get left in half. And in that they get sewn in strips and the strips get sewn together.

    I have not started my OBW yet but I do have to say this is one of the best tuts that I have seen. Very easy to undrstand and tons of info and instructions. Thank you cutebuns for taking the time to do this for us.

    Thank you. I enjoyed doing it. I have seen so many works of art come out of it. It was worth every minute I spent on it.

    TG no Y seams! It is such an easy block/quilt to make. Just doesn't look like it!

    This is part of three tutorials called "Tip toe through Hexagons Cutie Style" This thread is layout, so go to the first page and read the whole thing. There are a number of places where the other two threads are mentioned.
    Otherwise, you can go up to the top of this page, click on the search word, type in Tip toe through Hexagons, and you will receive links to the cutting and assembly pages.
