    I love to do stack & whack quilts and I saw in a magazine how to do one
    in squares. Now I have lost the magazine. Can someone please tell me where I can find the pattern or what magazine it was in?

    Thanks
    Beverly

    I think I found this same pattern in the new Love of Quilting magazine that I just got in the mail. It is the May/June issue.
    I would like to try this one myself, it looks much easier than the others, not so many pieces per block and you immediately end up with a square block :D

    Stack and Whack is fun and easy to do. It is simple if you are wanting to do a basic one, not sure of the exact pattern you are calling for. If you have 6 fabrics, then you will stack them all nice and neat on top of each other...then 'whack' w/the ruler and rotary cutter-otherwise, cut it:)Then you take the top one on the right and put it on the bottom of the pile on the right...I then sew mine together (some wait till you are done stacking and whacking)then place them again, and 'whack' again. Again taking the top right and putting it on the right bottom. You do this 6 times since you have 6 fabrics. Hope that helps!:)Skeat

    amma, I don't think you misposted. There are different kinds of 'stack and whack' and what I explained is the basic one. Here's an example online of another 'stack and whack' that is the kaleidoscope. And, isn't all of it fun?!:)Skeat

    I just got that magazine and that was what I was talking about. I had seen it another magazine and could not remember which one but it was
    basicaly the same pattern. I am going to hang on to this one because I don't know when I will get around to making one but it is on my "to do" list.

    Are you meaning the 4-patch posey? 4 patches are cut in squares from 4 layers and matched to do a kaleidoscope, but it makes another square. Takes less fabric, makes neat patches, and easier to sash and put together. I am having serious issues with my computer and cannot post pictures, so I can't show a photo, sorry. This does make a neat quilt. :lol:

    I did one a few years ago. I had 8 different fabrics, 4 lights and 4 darks alternating them in a stack. Then I cut from one side to the other, at least 1" from the edge. Take one of the top pieces and move it to the bottom of the stack, then you sew them together. After you are done, you stack them again and cut from the other two sides that you didn't cut on earlier. Do the same with the one piece to the bottom and sew them together again.

    When you are done with all the blocks, then you square them up to the size you want them..........I took the smallest one and squared them up to that size...........then sew them together.

    It was just 4 different fabrics per block. And you can make the blocks any size you want them to be. I have seen them in 15" to 8".

    That's how I did mine.

    Here is a quilt that was done for a friends son with that pattern. Of course the dots were added down the middle, but this is what the squares looked like done.

    I made a black and cream one for my bed, but can't find the picture on this computer. Must have been on the other one.

    The new issue of Fons and Porter's magazine has the Stack and Whack square instructions. It makes 4 patches.
