    I am not sure the difference in stack & whacks and OBW's but from what I have done and seen on here the stack & whacks usually use a background fabric for piecing and the OBW's seem to be just the blocks all sewn together without any other fabric...someone please correct me if I am wrong.
    I personally prefer the stack & whack quilts.

    Thanks its pretty fabric so hopefully it will look nice..whack and stack are different because they use 2 fabrics...the one block wonders just use one piece of fabric...both are cool, I think whack and stacks are faster because they are larger blocks..When I finish I will post the quilt...Thanks

    I made a stack and whack crazy quilt a few yrs ago...it was 9 fabrics cut at the same time and then sorted one piece at a time so that each block contained 1 of each fabric in the block...when when sewn together I squared it by a focal I liked in each square...all were random cuts and each block was different(99 of them)...the OBW is the same fabric throughout the quilts

    I'd never heard of stack and whack quilts until I found this board. Love all the blocks I've seen but wonder, is everyone using a template to cut the pieces?
