    Bev, If you google Stack&Whack, you will find a bunch of sites with photos. It is a fun quilt to do. You need to find repeats in the pattern on the fabric. Stack 6 or 8 of the exact same repeats, then "whack" them into diamonds, or triangles etc. When sewn together, it is much like a kalidascope. Just one fabric, but every block is different, and a surprise! I have Bethany Reynolds book, Magic Stack & Whack, but I am sure there are instructions on the internet. Bethany has a couple other books also. Fun quilt to make. Hope I haven't confussed you completely. I'm sure someone else will show up with a much better explaination!

    But there is also the square pattern, basically just cutting a repeat of the pattern four times exactly, then stack them up and cut into quarters then each four identical corners (which match exactly) can be put together to make a kaleidescope effect, don't forget you can turn each corner in or out to whichever formation pleases you the most. This version is easier than the above method :D
    Could not get the website to open....help please.....

    I have done this with triangles and LOVE my quilt.....Attached are two pictures of the pattern....using hot air balloons in the repeat. EVERY pattern is different.....as you see.

    Rainbow....I LOVE your quilt, what a great fabric to choose, I think I like the triangle pattern better!! I don't know why the link hasn't worked so I suggest just going to:-

    http://www.bobrow.net

    Then go to Kimberleys website, then scroll down to quilting, then to all night class. I just tried it and it works this way:D

    There is a wonderful tutorial for the 4 patch posie ( she calls it 4patch stacker) at quiltbea.blogspot.com. Very detailed and pictures for each step of the way. This a great quilt to learn stack and whack. Doesn't required but 4 repeats of the fabric. One thing I love is that if you don't like the way the posie looks, turn it a different way three more times. You will have a ball seeing how many designs it comes up with. HAVE FUN and I know you will be hooked after one block.

    Rainbow what a beautiful quilt!!! Very colourful!!

    I made one in triangles several years ago and really loved how it turned out. I started my 4 patch posies and hope to have a photo to share with you after the long weekend!

    I laid four identical repeats on top of one another .....you want to pin this so they match reallly good...this is the only hard part...that takes some time.....I cut them into 4" strips .....then into 4" blocks and each stack of four made a 4 patch block....you can turn them any way as long as the same centers are matching....hope this helps....I found this to be lots of fun and very fast and a no brainer.....enjoy Oh here are the ones I've done
