Stack n Whack Finish

My quilt guild had a trunk show and challenge for Stack n Whack quilts.

I borrowed the book from the library since I wasn’t sure it was a type of quilt I would want to make more than once. While traveling I found the perfect fabric.

What I didn’t have was the book to tell me how much I needed. And I didn’t buy enough.  Which meant I had to be creative in how I used the fabric. I show some of my process in this post. Since I was off the beaten track with the method I was going to need more fabric though I didn’t end up using the purple.

Finished quilt:

Here is a close-up of the center. I did a swirl out from the center.

And a modified orange peel/arc in the corner triangles. stack-n-whack-close-up

On the borders, I did an overlapping ribbon and meandering feather.

The quilt measures 43″ x 63″ and I used Aurifil thread for piecing and Glide cool grey for the quilting.

It was a great learning experience, and next time I’ll make sure I buy enough fabric, though I’m glad this quilt has it’s own personality and twist.
