This week’s Work in Progress is a a Ribbon Weave Stack-n-Whack from a class that Mom and I took at the AQS Paducah Quilt show several years ago. This quilt measures approximately 73″ x 84″.
Stack-n-Whack is a technique developed by Bethany Reynolds that makes beautiful patterns that look MUCH harder to make than they really are. Basically you take a print with a non-directional repeat, stack the layers together so the repeat is directly lined up on each layer, and then cut the fabric. The result is amazing designs that each look unique but are cut from the same fabric!
To help make the border pop, Mom used a false piping in yellow between the edge of the blocks and the border.
I dug back through my photos and actually found a picture of me with Bethany Reynolds, as we were lucky enough to have her teach this class!
