    Today I took a class on S&W...had so much fun and easier then I thought it would be. I loved how each came out. But the other lady taking the class just returned from Hawaii with fabric she purchased there....you can imagine. It was a colorful floral that was just gorgeous. Well when she put hers together it was jaw dropping each and every one of hers...made mine look truly boring...But I'm already out searching for my next fabric and it's going to be stunning....

    I agree, I love the bright florals which are harder to find.

    I agree that florals make the most amazing blocks done this way, but I really like yours too. Don't be down hearted, yours will make a beautiful and unique quilt that will be much admired.

    How much fabric does it take? I purchased some fabric not realizing how big the print was, and I think it would work well for S & W. But I probably have enough only for a small one, maybe a baby quilt or table topper.

    I'll try to remember my camera next wk and take photo of hers...we start putting it together next sat.
    This teacher told us 6 yds...but I personally looking at what I didn't use think 3-4 would have been enough.We are doing 9 blocks each I think will be 12 1/2 bordered...so lap size

    Thank you! I have 3 yds. I probably wouldn't have tried this pattern, but since I now have the fabric, I'll give it a shot. Thanks! Yours is very pretty!

    Your Fabric is BEAUTIFUL, I love it, where in the world did you find fabric like that? If you don't mind my asking. Great job. I have never done a stack and wack, but would like to try it sometime in the near future.
