    correction to my last post....six fabs=six cuts=six blocks
    two simple rules for success
    1. Show up.
    2. Pay attention.

    1. Kindness counts.

    It's a method used by various designers, including Buggy Barn. Buggy Barn does some awesome patterns with it!

    I have a pattern that uses 12 fat quarters. You stack and wack then take piece 1 and put a t the bottom of the first stack; pieces 1 &2 at the bottom of the second stack, etc until you have gone through all the pieces. It is a variation of the crazy quilt. It is Kwick Krazy Quilt by Two Kwick Quilters.

    I made this pattern using 9 fabrics and only made 4 cuts so that I ended up with 9 sections in my blocks. At the time I made it, it was called Stack and Whack and was before the kaleidascopes were popular. It was the first top I ever pieced and I made it into a bedspread rather than a quilt.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    We did one in quilt guild several years ago that was a simple house shape. Stacking the fabrics, cutting and rotating each pile as you have described made a fun project. Other simple pieced shapes might be a fun challenge.

    Wouldn't that be something that they call "Wonky" these days?
