    Sort of. Whack and Stack is a simplified, but not by much, method of getting identical pieces cut for a k_scope quilt. Other methods include cutting clear templates and then trimming carefully to pull the elements together.

    This is a nice book I found at the library:

    http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art1708.asp

    Just be aware that they take up a fair amount of fabric since everything is fussy cut and the points of the elements get pretty thick when you are sewing them, making it hard to get consistent seams.

    And no, I haven't tried one yet, it's on the list of things to do in 2034.

    You may be addicted but they are spectacular. While I have the patience to handquilt a king size white on white I would have a nervous breakdown making a quilt like that.

    Absolutely beautiful.

    I have some kalaidascope fabric already cut just sitting somewhere in my room. I bought it years ago with the intention to make a small lap quilt.

    Your quilts are beautiful. I started to make a kaleidoscope quilt a while ago but haven't finished it yet. I really need to get back to it. It's just one more of my UFO's.
    I'm from Utah too.

    Is that Stack 'n' Whack? I haven't tried one yet--they're kind of scary!

    These are stunning. I love kaleidoscope quilts. I love how the blue in the top one just pops out at me. It is kind of florescent look in the lgt blue. I just noticed there is also a cream/white/ or yellow (not sure which) that does the same thing. The second one looks like fall and I really love the ones at the bottom that looks like wreaths the way the leaves circle the inside. The last on is just so bright and cheery. You do and excellant job of laying them out.

    beautiful! bookmarking, but intimidated too. I know I am not at this skill level, but also have visual problems, so, who knows, maybe one day I'll do a few and incorporate them with some other stuff. So pretty to look at, and I agree, the first one glows. Like all three :D

    Very sharp! You really do have an eye for color. The first one is my favorite!

    My mother says she makes kaleisescope quilts but I have never seen one of hers. I'm not sure if she makes them like these or if she makes a different kind.

    Since I'm pretty new to quilting seeing them the other day blew my mind away. ... finally a use for that weird fabric that I have gotten along the way that just does not seem to fit with any other project lol! I"m looking forward to making one.

    A few of my friends are going to start a quilting group of our own. After going to the quilting guild in town and deciding that it was too stuffy. We would rather go some place and actually quilt!!! So we are branching out and going on our own. We are going to do one of these in one of our first get togethers. We are all intrigued by them. We are just looking for a place to meet right now...!
