Description

A stack n whack baby quilt for a coworker.

She has an older daughter who was very excited about having a little sister because of the "pink clothes!" so I wanted this to have pinks. I wanted an excuse to make a stack n whack. Watching it come together, I'm really excited about how visually stimulating that pattern is and that it offers a lot of learning opportunities in pattern matching, repetition, etc.

Like! I did a stack n whack years ago and have always wanted to do it again. They're fun!

I love this fabric, it is georgous. I haven't tried stack & whack, but it is on my list.

Love the fabric you chose. I also would like to give a stack & whack a try. Look forward to seeing when it is all complete!

Mrsdragon

Thanks all! The fabric is from the Oops A Daisy line by Moda. : )

Now that's a back I like! There must be lots of stack and whack patterns? I started making one and the blocks were pretty small. Yours is wonderful! What is the name of the pattern?

I have not yet done a stack and whack, but now I think I have to! Cute quilt. I am impressed with the corners of your binding.

I so want to try this method. Very nicely done.

Terryt1955 Thank you! I didn't use a pattern. I did stack and whack blocks with 6" tall triangles and then just filled in the rest. If I had wanted to tackle Y seams, I could have done it with fewer joins but...I wasn't looking to learn that skill on a deadline. : )

Azjune Thank you! A friend showed me a neat trick on the binding of this quilt that made it so easy...white glue. Yup. Elmer's school glue. Instead of pinning, glue the binding down and iron in place. That way nothing shifts around on you while you are stitching and you can fuss the corners just so.

Mrsdragon

Whatthebobbin Thank you! : )

Mrsdragon I recently saw glue used in the binding process on a Youtube video by Sharon Schamber. I need to watch it again so that I can get better corners. I do okay on the rest of the binding process, just not so great on the corners (yet!).
