What are you most proud of? That I had the courage to share this work. It is truly unique the way it comes out. Some good blocks, some a little off.....so be forwarned, keep your centers as well matched as possible. You can fudge a little on the other seams (very little), but the center ones are key. I have posted this as an incentive to a couple of friends here who has expressed an interest.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Look at fabric differently. The most ugly one probably will be perfect. The more colors and swirls or twist and turns, the better. Bethany's book (she has several) gives good example of what to look for in choosing. I call this my potato chip quilt --- have trouble going to bed after finishing a block, I'll just do "one more". Enjoy

Dyyan - not sure if I replied to this or not - Sometimes my computer does weird things and we just had a change in microsoft that is making us all nuts. Anyway, thanks for your comment. Give it a whirl --- add to your "to do list" - you'll have fun and be as addicted as the rest of us

Thanks for visiting my page the stack n whack is probably my fav quilt because it is such a great surprise as u began to put the block together. I do love the fabric that you have chosen, the uglest fabric can turn out the most beautiful block. Thanks again will post 3 more of my stack n whacks soon. usa15mom.
