    Several people have asked on another thread what these are and noone has explained them. I have never made any. I probably could explain if I researched it but I know there are folks on here who could explain it a lot better. Thank you so much with your help.

    You stack up a number of repeats of the same fabric and using pins match the repeats exactly. Then you cut squares for a 4 patch posie or 60 triangles for a OBW or another triangle shape for the Stack and Whack.

    Below are some links to tutorials done here on the board by Cutebuns. One block wonder is sometimes called a hexagon quilt as well. That, stack n whack and 4 patch posy are similar in that they all use repeats of the fabric. Look at the pictures in the tutorials for a better explanation. :D Cutie's tutorials will walk you through the entire process, but I put some pictures below for a quick reference.

    Here is a picture of one I am working on. You cut six strips of the same repeat, then cut them into triangle shapes.

    Thanks. I saw several ladies ask these questions and I was not sure how to explain them as I have never done any.

    Connecting threads have a good video tutorial showing how to do this. You have to be very precise in the cutting, so watch the video and go for it. It's really fun, you never know what you are going to get
