    Isn't it amazing how stack n whack and OBW completely transforms some of the most challenging fabrics into great quilts?! Great job. Can't help you with the quilting though.

    Do you mind if I ask, but where can I find your fabric print? I had a small piece of red background in this print from another group swap and can never find your fabric print. The cute girls in the background are really sweet. This would be perfect for my granddaughter. Thanks and your work is awesome too!

    I have to admit I'm not sure what to think of that fabric. It's cute but then again it's ugly. I'm confused! Anyway I do like what you did with it. Some of them look like snow flakes.

    Hi cctx, I bought the fabric from ebay some time ago. It came in a pack with other fabrics and I only had 1yrd of it. Sorry I can't be more help, it would be nice for a little girl :-)

    I like that fabric - not ugly, it was sassy! Now, I have some very ugly fabric around here - Stack and Whack is in my future!

    Love the way the different types of stack n whack you used had a different effect on the fabric - cool!
