    Has anyone watched the tutorial on the stack & whack with Missouri Quilt Company. I watched it a couple times then made a block. This is what I came out with. Stack & whack without the stack and it is scrappy I love it.....These were left over blocks I had from another quilt I had done so using up my scraps.

    I have never done a stack and whack because I didn't want to stack all that fabric together so this is excellent for me.

    interesting use of triangles...did you use a Turnover from Moda, or just cut your own?

    I had cut blocks from another project I had done and they were 6" blocks and I cut them in half to do this. That's what they say a turn over is. I'm trying to use up my stash.....

    Pretty - she said she was inspired by Bethany Reynolds Stack n Whack book, but it's not stack n whack, is it? :shock:

    Though I suppose if you didn't have the pre-cuts available, you could cut your 8 triangles from a stack of strips...

    I didn't have pre-cuts I cut 6" blocks in half and used them and it's nothing like stack and whack you just sew 2 triangles together short sides together then sew short side to 3 x 8 rectangle place the two triangles on top of triangle with rectangle I matched the points of triangle together I found it better you have about 1/4 more at bottom but just sew 1/4 in along the bottom of triangles and cut the rest off. I did it 2 ways and they both end up the same....Clear as day right. I watched the video about 3 times before I figured it out for my self that it doesn't match up as she said....It's 3 triangles and a rectangle and no stacking involved it's great....

    Those are lovely, I have got to get some black fabric and try some of these. Would they do for preteen and teen boys donation quilts? Those are the hardest to make for me.

    I really like the block but it's not the SnW that was created by Bethany Reynolds. It is the kaleidoscopic image I think of when I hear or read that term.

    http://www.bethanyreynolds.com/

    "Stack-n-Whack is an easy way to create quilt blocks with unique kaleidoscope designs. These designs require a set of identical pieces cut from a print fabric. Rather than finding and cutting each piece individually, a quilter can cut and layer a number of large, identical print rectangles to make a stack."

    Yes did this method and just love it! Fun and fast to do. I used charm pack that I had no idea what to do with. Now the top has turned into a UFO just waited to be quilted and given away or used by me. WOW novel idea. Quilt for ME?
