    no it's not stack & whack from that book it's made with 6" turnover block and 3x8 rectangle. That's why I liked it no waste and you can make it scrappy without the stacking...watch the video on Missouri Quilt company it's cool.....

    Pretty blocks, the black fabric really pops the color. I am going to watch the tute today.

    I haven't done hers but my friend has and I didn't like the stacking part and pinning to keep in place. But hers came out beautiful but it wasn't anything I wanted to do. But I didn't mean there was waste I just mention that there wasn't any so you would know....and that you could use scraps or your turnovers or 6" squares. :)

    OK - sorry, misunderstood you. It's just that it's a common misconception that ALL stack n whack, kaleidoscopes etc are fussy cut therefore generate a lot of waste. Just didn't want folks who didn't know to get the wrong idea. ;) :-D

    the tutorial is a bit confusing as the demonstrator is not making an actual "stack and whack" block. She is using the concept but using different fabrics to create the pinwheel pattern. You might search for pinwheel designs. It could be drafted on graft paper to determine the sizes of the rectangular pieces that will fit the triangles.

    I love the true stack n whack by Bethany Reynolds. I look for a print that has several colors then cut as she instructs. It is always a surprise how each block looks when it emerges. Someone suggested to use a fabric that is really garrish and that you would never think of using for anything. It is a fun process. Since you only use 1/2 of the width, I usually use the other half for borders. This eliminates wasting half of the fabric.

    I had to make a baby quilt and it is on the back burner right now :( Will finish it before Christmas. I wish I had used the black now instead of the green. Much richer looking...

    I just watched this tutorial today. When her block was completed, I noticed the top tips of the pieced turn-overs would not be a nice point once assembled in a quilt but yet in your photo, yours had 1/4" above the tip so it would be correct once sewn into a quilt. Did you make your black background triangles larger to begin with?

    Thanks for the scrappy idea! I've done a lot of S&W's and have a lot of leftover pieces cut that I didn't know what to do with. COMBINE THEM!
    I love your colors!
