I love Stack 'N Whack. It's always a surprise when you finish a block. If you have not done one, do yourself a favor and take a chance. I call it the potato chip quilt, because you always want to do "just one more block before I got to bed". I always try to include a border of the original print so people can see how unique the process is. I remember one totally awful fabric I bought that a friend said "Thank God you bought it and put it out of its misery". To her surprise, but not mine, it looked GREAT!!!!! Your babric is adorable. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me to whack some more

Ooh I totally love this... I have never heard of Stack N Whack before but now I want to do it. Quilting is so much fun and there is always something new:) Will have to go search for a tutorial on this. Thanks for sharing.

Desna, a great book is Stack 'N Whack by Bethany Reynolds, although there are a few out there, this was the one I used. The secredt is in the cutting, so you need a larger quantity of fabri so you can make 8 idential repeats for a large square and it is grat fun. I especially like to use odd looking patterns to see what happens. You'll love it!

Also, take my advice and stay away from stripes for a while. I did one small one for a baby and was nearly blind by the time I was done. Multicolors, florals, she gives a great amount of hints in her book about picking out what works and more importantly, what does not work.

I would love to try a Stack N Whack quilt. Your's looks awsome! It would be great if Craftsy could do a class!

Oh - WOW! That is absolutely stunning! I've never tried "Stack 'n' Whack" which is still a bit of a mystery to me, but with results like that, I really will have to have a go! Yes - as Di4N4 says, it would be wonderful if Craftsy would run a tutorial and I'm sure loads of people would subscribe to it.

thanks! I made this a couple years ago in a class at my church. I believe I could do much better now, with all the great tips I have learned in my Craftsy classes!
