My repeat is probably between 12 to 14 inches as I have NOT measured it yet. The fabric has like water color flowers of orange, gold, tan with black sketch lines...so I felt it would do a pretty shack N whack. Plus
    book suggested 3 1/2 yards so I only bought 3 yards. It may only get to be a throw. NEED your advice on cutting it.
    Now, remember this is my first attempt at S&W so not sure I am qualified to give anyone advice, but I will tell you that mine took all the fabric I had plus a bit. When I purchased the original amount, I THOUGHT I had enough, but had to order a bit more online. I just took the book and did what it said. I will say I think it is crucial that you get those stacked exactly to match, because if you don't, they won't look right. Ask me how I know that! So before you cut, measure precisely to see that you have six repeats and the FULL repeat. If you shorted the yardage, you might only have a part of the sixth repeat. Then cut the strip. I did use the WOF rather than cut it in the middle, because I am conservative with fabric (some might say cheap) and I didn't want a partial wedge left when I might need every inch and I did need it all. Have you picked the pattern that you want to use? I have seen this one with the sides straightened out and you wouldn't need all those hexes on the side so that could save fabric as well. Good luck. I just jumped in and did this and figured that if it failed, no one would take away my birthday! These are great fun.

    That is truly lovely! In fact, I love everything about it. The flowers, black star points, and that delicious lime green that looks like springtime. It is truly beautiful, not to mention that gorgeous quilting.

    Absolutely love the quilt and esp. the lime green. I want to make one but don't know which Bethany Reynolds pattern book to get this quilt pattern from. Looked on Amazon and found several of her books, but which one has this beautiful pattern in it? Help please, where to get this pattern? Thanks in advance.

    It is called "Magic Stack and Whack" and is pictured on p. 81.
