    I love stack-n-whack quilts! I saw that fabric the other day, and almost bought it. I can't wait to see when you're finished!

    I looked all over online and did not find this fabric. We don't have a Joanns. Does anyone know where I can order some?

    A friend and I bought this fabric yesterday at Hancock's. We each got 3 1/2 yards since they had only 7 yards left. Glad to read on this thread that there are no Y seams. Even though I don't understand how there's not any. Plan to order the book soon so I can be a part of this ADVENTURE!

    I did a OBW class with the book a few years ago. I still have the stack of half hexagons pinned together! When i started I was pretty excited about the method. I picked out a really pretty asian print with light green and cream backgrounds and red/black/gold designs. It turned out some really pretty blocks! My biggest problem is that I don't have a design wall. I don't have a floor I can lay them out on. So I can't visualize the quilt. I tried to start on it not very long ago (finishing up some UFO's) and did a piece of a strip. Then just took it apart a few days ago.

    I read somewhere on here where someone took the whole hexagon and sewed another triangle piece to 2 opposite corners. This made it a block. Not square but kind of parralelagram shaped. I'm really considering doing this just so I can finish it and put it to use. I hate still having it laying around years later.

    I was really excited when I started it, but man have I lost my interest. Part of me really wants to finish it the way it was started...and another part JUST WANTS IT DONE! :)

    Your beautiful fabric and blocks might be inspiring me...lol

    Edited to add: I probably have close to 100 blocks! I bought a 24" repeat and the teacher forgot to tell us if the repeat was large we could buy less fabric...lol. I had a king size bed at the time so I went ahead and cut a ton.

    That's a shame! I know some ppl hang up a cheap plastic table cloth, flannel side out and blocks stick to that. My wall is just a queen size batt stapled to a length of timber and screwed to the wall. Didn't cost much. If you don't have the wall space, could you rig something up that you can put up and take down? Kind of like a roller blind maybe? Just a thought - I hate to think of your poor neglected OBW! :-( :lol: :-D

    jtapp, all I have for a design wall is 2 plastic tablecloths with the flannel-like backs that I picked up at the thrift store for 50 cents each. They also have them at most dollar stores. I use 3 skirt hangers with the clips on them to pinch the tops of the table cloths, one on each end and one in the center to hold the two together. I hook the hangers over screws my DH put into the back hallway for me, but you could also hook them onto a window or closet door. When I am not using them I can fold them up out of the way, or just leave them up unless we have company coming as it's really not in the way back there.

    Me too. That's why i havent ruled out adding the triangle to two opposite corners method. Not exactly the same thing but I would still come out with a pretty darned nice quilt!

    I've actually thought of doing this before! I usually think of it during the day then forget by the time I get home :oops: I think I still have a new tablecloth that I could switch out for the old one on my table (call me cheap..lol)

    Ok, I think I'm going to make a wall tonight! Maybe I will show you some of my blocks :)
