Stack and Whack Preview

My quilt guild is having a Stack-n-Whack challenge.

I can appreciate the technique, but I am not sure it is “me” but I’m going to give it a try. I have already started thinking about ways to change it up.

I found this fabric on vacation and thought it would lend a lot of possibilities. I’m trying to look past the floral aspect of this (I really am not a fan of flowery quilts).Stack and Whack Fabric

I played with possibilities if I cut it into 6 wedges:

Wow, that is a lot of flower power going on. I’ll have to play with off-center possibilities.

Here are fabrics I purchased to use, though I have no idea where I am going with this. Stack and Whack Fabric 9

Have you ever made a stack-n-whack quilt? Did you like the finished result?

I’m thinking I wished I had purchased a geometric print. Maybe this will be a good exercise outside my comfort zone.

    I think it is beautiful…a diversion from all the geometric shapes…it would make a lovely table runner for Victorian furniture. What is the stack-n-whack procedure?

      Thanks Bonnie

      I’ve not done this type of stack-n-whack yet so this will be a learning experience.

      Thanks for the encouragement Val. I will have to check your blog for pictures of the one you made. I really am trying to figure a design that fits my style so it will be interesting. I doubt I will do the pointy star thing.

    I personally adore that flowery fabric. Just saying.

      🙂 Gretchen. Maybe I will like them better after I make them.
