    Stack & Whack Wonky charity quilt finished

    Back in March, I asked for advice on how to quilt this quilt http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t183749.html . I appreciated all of the advice. I chose the zig zag meander. It really fits this quilt. It took a while to get it done as I had a wedding quilt to complete first. After those were done, I moved. When I had shown the top to the charity, the response had been somewhat cool. But when I took them the completed quilt, they were so much more delighted

    I love the quilt. Like the colors too.
    I looked at this pattern again and for
    me it was complicated. Would love
    to make it. About how much of each
    fabric did you need? Guess I need another
    cup of coffee and read the instructions again.

    I like it a lot. And the zig zag meandering goes perfectly.

    Your color choices are great. I love the pattern and your quilting complements the quilt. Thanks for sharing. I'm saddened that it initially received such a cool reception from the charity. I would think they would be thrilled with anything they received. I think you did a wonderful job and I commend your generosity. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, I love it! I see that you posted the pattern on the linked thread, I will have to try one. But I think I'll use greens and yellows. The quilting design is perfect for this quilt. Was it hard to do?

    I have a zig zag meander that I like to use, too. It's perfect for a quilt like this. It takes a LONG time to sew out, though!

    Love the quilt and the quilting!
