Fun with Stack and Whack

stack and whack

When I stumbled upon this technique it really caught my eye. Maybe because I am lover of colour and pattern. Maybe because the results remind me of those childhood toys .. the kaleidoscopes.The beauty of a stack and whack quilt is that it is a like a secret recipe and no two quilts might ever the same… not unless you really try.

To make a great stack and whack quilt you need a fabric with a suitable pattern and then you need multiples of the repeat of the pattern. Some might say that it can be a less economic technique, which is why we’ve put together a fabric bundle for you with everything you need for the quilt top. ( Click here for the fabric supplies). If you want to try your hand at creating your own see below for full details of what you will need.

The finished quilt top will measure approx 55″ x 50″ making it a perfect throw.

What will we cover?

During the workshop we’ll talk you through understanding pattern on your fabric, how the repeat works and how to cut multiple layers with accuracy.

 

Once cut, we’ll look at our shapes and how we can make a variety of different outcomes with them before starting to piece our quilt top together. If you look closely you will see that each hexagon has a completely different pattern.

How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work.

 

You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

Some previous patchwork experience is needed.

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?
