primarily oriental style prints with some odd bits thrown in.
What was your inspiration?
I origionally wanted to re-create the quilt in Stack a new Deck, by Karla Alexander. but seemed drawn to the oriental fabrics instead. I had a very hard time combining the prints and did not stack and slash as the pattern called for. I am not totally convinced all the blocks work but after nearly a year trying to get them to go together I said enough and this is it. Are all quilters so changeable. I kept buying fabric and then changing my mind! hmmm
What are you most proud of?
I finally finished it. Such a simple pattern that ended up not so simple to do.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you are doing a stack and wack pattern really think about the fabrics and if they combine well. Maybe I am too matchy but some of the combinations just did not work for me. I have enough of the reject blocks to do another quilt.
