    I think I've lost my marbles

    I made a stack-n-whack (OBW?) quilt for my sister for Christmas and swore I would NEVER DO ONE AGAIN. It turned out pretty good (and she loved it) but the work involved just killed me and I wanted to just throw it all away at least twice.

    So, being that I'm crazy, I've decided that since I resolved to put a quilt into the local county fair this year, I would (for some reason) need to do another dang kaleidoscope quilt and enter THAT.

    Glutton for punishment. That's what I am. And crazy.

    Here's the fabric I've decided to use...legacy-studio-polynesian-medallion.jpg It's from JoAnns, it's Legacy Studio brand, called "Polynesian Master Medallions". Lovely bright colors with metallic edging...really eye popping. I hope it looks OK in the quilt and not too busy!

    Right now my sewing room is packed full of furniture (we're having flooring installed all over the rest of the house) so I can only think and plan but I'm actually pretty excited about getting started on this. For a change I have ZERO UFO's but I will probably start a couple simple quilts too because I know I won't be able to grind away on this quilt without a distraction without losing whatever small grasp I have left on my sanity!

    I'm with morelcabin, also. I'd like to see what you do with it also. I'd even be curious on what a stack & whack, would turn out. Eventually let us know

    Ah, but you 'learned' on the first one. The SECOND on will be soooo easy

    Love the fabric and it does SCREAM ~ OBW, Kaleidoscopic or any Stack-n-Whack styles.

    Great fabric choice -- agree with others -- you've cut your teeth on the first one! This should be a blue ribbon with the lovely colors and the design.

    Wait - I can't believe it - are you sure you are a quilter? I don't think I have ever met one who didn't have at least 1 UFO (LOL)

    the fabric is gorgeous and will make a wonderful OBW - to me the piecing on these is the easy part. Getting the fabric, cutting it and then figuring out your block placements are the had parts. That said I don't think I have ever done another pattern that kept me as interested throughout the whole process as this one. Even deciding which of the 3 ways to put your triangles together is intriguing.

    How do you decide what fabric would be good for a stack and whack......I have never made one!
