Default Stack and Whack Block

I saw the tutorial that Missouri Star Quilt Company has on making Stack and Whack Blocks using a precut turnovers. Has anyone made one using turnovers --or with using scraps of material to make it scrappy. Whta the tutorial shows is each triangle is made with a different material and the background fabric (the rectangles) were all the sme fabric of a neutral color.I really liked this look of the one they made on the tutorial. But I never see turnovers at any of my local quilt shops. I do not know what size the triangles are? Does anyone know? Or if I make the block by cutting my own squares--and then cut them into triangles, what size squares should I cut? I would appriciate any input on this if anyone has done one like this. And I would especially like to see pictures of any that anyone has made like this. I would like to make a quilt like this for my 18 year old daughter for a graduation gift--and I want to make it with this scrappy look. Help.

near as i can see the turnover is a 6" triangle. and missouri star added a 3" x 8" strip. jenny says the turnover is the same size as the triangle in the stack n whack book. i can't find my book right now. i am sure someone has that book handy and can verify the measurements.

this is one of my 'to do' quilts too. good luck.

a turnover is a 6" triangle so cutting your fabric into 6" squares and cutting these in half diagonally should create the turnovers you are looking for.

info contained on this website.
"...Turnovers - Hot out of the oven, Turnovers are 40, 6-inch squares cut in half diagonally to yield 80 half square triangles."

here is a really tip helpful site and they have a precut guide downloaded chart at 9.201

The turnovers, when sewn into a square, will make a charm, or 5" square.

Yes, those turnovers are just a 6" square cut corner to corner diagonally! I am 100% sure of this.
