I had so much fun doing my first Stack & Whack quilt that I've started on another one! The pattern for this one is much simpler, tho . . . just four triangle to form a square. I got the pattern from the same book by Bethany Reynolds, Stack-n-Whackipedia. The pattern is called Suspended Squares.
Here is the original fabric:
I saw this fabric and immediately wanted to try stacking it. Quilt guild is working on Quilts of Valor this year and I think this is a good print for that as well. There was just over 2 yards left on the bolt, so I grabbed it!
After the usual preparation and stacking, I cut squares into triangles and re-stitched them into squares. Here are some of them on the design wall.
These are just the centers of the blocks. When you add a round of strips they look like there are shadows behind them.
Cool, huh? I'm so pleased with the way these are turning out - even if I did sew a whole lot of strips on upside down the other day! I could tell it wasn't going to work when I went to sew the next strip and it wouldn't fit right! But, there was no screaming-of-curses or stomping-of-feet. I just frogged the whole lot and started over. I'm quite proud of myself - but I'm thinking a little extra chocolate may be in order. LOL!
