    i have made this with red prints, cream and brown. It turned out great. It was so easy and quick to make. There are dfferent directions but I remember I started with quite a large square (16" I am thinking). Move one to the bottom each time. The really fun part is then twisting and turning the resulting blocks. It is hard to see they are all cut the same.

    Here are my versions (from a previous post) - not Stack the Deck but another similar method:

    crazy quilt sort of

    And I use this method often for backgrounds - I find it's way more interesting and effective than a solid or big patches.

    This was a group quilt my bee did for one our member's 2nd baby - I asked each to make a bright star - any color - as long as the background was a really, really dark fabric - black, blue, purple, green - I didn't care. Just dark.

    Then I made all the Slice & Dice/Mince blocks to be used for background.
    And in different fabric combos.
    I chopped off some of the corners of the blocks so they would meld in better with the background. (I'm not a big fan of straight grid settings.)
    If you notice, the outside edges of the quilt are even darker.
    That's because for those blocks I eliminated all the lighter darker fabrics (if that makes any sense) and only used the darkest of the dark.
    It's a very versatile and useful technique.

    Stack the deck and Stack and Whack are not the same thing!

    There are earlier versions of the technique that were, in fact, called Stack and Whack, and NOT in reference to Bethany Reynolds Kaleidoscope cutting method.

    So it could be a case of when someone was introduced to the technique as to which moniker is used.
