    These are the two Stack & Whack Quilts I finished this last weekend. I made them while we were in Az last winter. I really love doing these quilts.

    For my DGS for Christmas

    Beautiful! I have never done one of these! How do you get the triangles all to match? I know they are stacked, but how do you get them to match without moving?

    You have 8 repeats, stack up matching designs, cut and when you open the 8 pieces you position and they should match, If you are lucky.

    These are gorgeous. I tried one but it "fanned" out and the instructor about had a "stroke" (smile). Said she had never seen that happen before. My friend's, however, turned out beautiful.

    Beautiful quilts Beth! Just curious do you happen to have a pic of the original fabrics before they were stacked and whacked?
    Oops....I think I saw the original fabric for the first one in the border.
    I have this on my to do list too.

    Here is the fabric I started the brown Stack & Whack with. I am sorry I have none of the butterfly fabric left. Here is the Lime Stack & Whack I posted on the 12th of Oct and the fabric I made the stars out of.

    Those stack n whacks are great! They are so fun to do. I have done probably 10 and have fabric for another one.
    The secret to not having the fabric move is to pin using the flower head pins. And I only use a length of fabric that is about 18" wide so I am not working with the whole width at once. Cutting is the hardest part of the quilt but once you do it even that is not so hard!

    Yes I always cut only half of the fabric widthwise also. I don't pin I sew several little stitches in spots throughout the fabric. Then I don't have to worry about running over the pins with my rotary cutter. I usually have a stitch in most of the stacks so they don't get mixed up. Takes a little longer to match repeats but I am very pleased with the extra time when the pieces are sewed.

    These are beautiful. I experimented with some old fabric, just in case I hated it. And now I'm working on a lap quilt, with that fabric. These are such fun and you did a gorgeous job.

    Are these quilts hard to make? Would love to try one but looking at the pattern, it intimadats me.
