Stack-n-Whack quilts and projects are such a fun way to play with fabric. Don’t miss a chance to learn from the innovative Bethany S. Reynolds herself.
Stack-n-Whack is a fun technique for aligning, stacking, and cutting printed fabric to create one-of-a-kind blocks. It’s great for using a big print that’s haunting your stash, for adding interest to your current projects, and for using your imagination and designing eye. That’s why we’ve gathered some of our Stack-n-Whack favorites for you!
Stack-n-Whackipedia brings together some of the best of Bethany’s technique, walking you through different shapes you can make and projects that use them.
The beautiful projects alone are incredible.
But in addition to the projects, it’s a valuable technique reference!
Stars a la Carte
In Stars a la Carte, Bethany tackles the LeMoyne Star. This classic block has charmed and frustrated quilters for centuries, and it can be tamed, and made with ease, with the addition of a few strategic seams. With a dozen projects included, this book is a must-have for LeMoyne Star admirers.
Magic Stack-n-Whack Quilts
Magic Stack-n-Whack Quilts is the book that started it all. And it is still one of the absolute best out there. If you love holding a book in your hands, this is the one to get.
Stack-n-Whack on iquilt.com
But maybe you like a more hands-on approach. If so, you’ll love taking Bethany’s Stack-n-Whack class on iquilt.com.
Work alongside Bethany to create your own Emerging Stars quilt. In this original design created just for iquilt, combine 60° diamond stars with hexagons to complete a beautiful work of art. Not sure if you’re ready for all of that? Then learn the technique by making Zippy Strippy, a bonus hexagon pattern that is great for beginners. In either case, you’ll never look at fabric repeats the same way again. Join the Stack-n-Whack fun! For your convenience, this class can be purchased for online viewing or purchased on DVD.
