    HI, all.
    Cutebuns had some great posts teaching people how to make a OBW. So, I pulled the indstructional portions of it from the posts and put it in a document.

    No pretty, but should work for those of you looking how to do a OBW.

    *Yes, cutebuns has approved this posting - sorry it took so long.

    Thank you so much!!! It makes it really nice to have everything together without the posts in between them. :wink: Although, I will go to the posts to see what questions were asked and answered so I can get an even better idea of what to do. :? :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Is there a special way to sew all of the blocks together for the quilt top? It looks difficult and I can't figure it out looking at the pictures. Thanks.

    kclausing, Thank you so much! Earlier this week I had looked at OBW & did a search here on the site. Read through over 20 pages & still didn't know where to start. Thanks for pulling it together. Joyce

    The end result is lovely but nothing I would even ATTEMPT at my level of quilting. Some of you do such intricate work, it amazes me.

    OBW = One Block Wonder = a hexagonal design made with only one fabric (Stack'N'Whack style) which are then sewn together without sashing. The fabric is what makes or breaks the outcome, IMHO.

    Remember, no question is too stupid to ask but it is dumb not to ask a question about something you don't understand or have never heard of. That's how we all learn!!!

    You just make half hexagons. Pin 2 together to make a whole while you finalize your arrangement. Then sew half hexagons together into long strips. Carefully remove them one at a time from your design wall, pin together each pair as you go. Take them to your machine and chain piece them together. Clip apart, press seams open, then replace on design wall. Then go to the next strip and do the same. When you have all the strips made, then start sewing 2 together, replace on wall when done sewing together, so you don't get your arrangement mixed up. By this time you should be able to see how it's going to look and not get them mixed up. I always put a safety pin on the top half hexagon of each strip (just to make sure I don't flip a strip around). Then sew two strips sets together, until they are all sewn into one big piece. If you've been pressing your seam allowances open all along, it will go together rather nicely.
