    I remember seeing this on her show too...I want to try it sometime. I think she has a video on her site of it.

    i made a stained class quilt using this method yrs ago. using a lot of soft pastel batiks, and QAYG. turned out real nice. that was when i was in a mode of 'the next thing i do, has to be something i have never done before'. wanted to make my own bias tape. i'm out of that now.

    I made one like that a few years ago using Halloween scraps. Turned out very cute. They are fun to make.

    The only pattern like this that I know of is Stack-n-Whack. This sounds just like one I did last year.

    I have a book with Stack and Whack as the title, have not tried the design, but the cover picture is pretty. Maybe this winter I will get at it--along with all the other patterns I would like to try! piecefully, the old one

    Isn't this also called Stack-N-Slash? Seems like I remember that from a few years back. Makes a cute quilt!

    I've made several and love making them. You can have any number of fabric squares and make any number of cuts you like.

    Made them too. Easy and a very quick method. Go to your local library and see if they have the book for you to check out. It makes it easier for you to understand.

    If life gives you scraps, make an angel quilt out of it!

    I just got to thinking about this and a question comes to mind. It probably shouldn't, as it obviously works - but I guess piecing it all with 1/4" seams you still come out with a good square block? My mind doesn't work well in the morning ... maybe by afternoon I'll be saying "oh yeah, of course it does!!!" I am so not a morning person!

    Our quilt club each did one of these last year. It was fun and different. Two ladies have finished the machine quilting on the lap quilts and two are making them into more like crazy quilts with hand embellished lace, stitches and beading. No sashing. Then I made another one with connecting threads fat quarters and bound each slice with a thin black sashing before assembling. I am hand quilting this one with sashiko black stitches in sashiko patterns. Both are works in progress.

    This is the very first piecing I ever did, and I made it into a bedspread instead of a quilt. At that time it was called a stack and whack but it's the same thing. To make it big enough, I did a double set of 9 blocks all with coordinating fabrics.

    Or maybe I did 3 sets now that I am looking at it again. LOL

    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.

    Yes it works, the technique is in a book by Buggy Barn, it is called Stack the Deck.

    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:

    Link:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...ml#post3758555

    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.
