Three questions -

 Has anyone done a quilt using the stack n whack method?

Do you have one of Bethany Reynolds's books?

Any recommendations on which of her books is the best for a beginner?

If Bethany writes the books called One Block Wonder - then Yes I have her books - all of them - at the moment they are packed so can't go look at the author.

I have one stack and whack - one block wonder quilt started but before i got it in the pattern I wanted to sew it together my Mom moved in with us and I had to take my design wall down.  I do have pictures of it though and a friend in NY wants me to finish it and send it to her - so will have to hunt for it as I told her I would try and get it done before Christmas.

I have all the books so can't recommend any except I would say to start with her first one as they progress.

Suzy, I know nothing about stack-n-whack! But your little dog is a cutie!   :)

I've done both stack-n-whack - 2 quilts and OBW - both hexagon (pink flowers) and octogons (fall colors)  You can see the octagon one in my gallery.  finished it up late last year, maybe early this year.  I meant to take a picture of the quilt I made DS and DDIL  but forgot when I was there.  there are fun and challenging.

Ditto what Springermom wrote.  Now I'm going to have to YouTube it.

I have "Quilt's by the Slice" it's good. "One Block Wonder" was written by Margaret Rosenthal I have that book as well. The methods are pretty much the same.

I've never used this method. I used Inklingo to do my kaleidoscopes. It's much easier.

I have the first of Bethany Reynold's books. It had all the basic information and never felt I needed more. One block wonders use the same shape throughout. Bethany's Stack and Whacks have background pieces so you can have pinwheel blocks, LeMoyne Star blocks, etc. In my opinion though the cutting is the same I find one block wonder too busy. I like the eyes to have a resting place and not drive me bonkers. JMHO I have done many stack and whacks, strictly using the book as my guide. I no longer refer to it because I have the method down pat.

Hi Agnes,

From time to time, I am going to ask the QCA Facebook page member questions about quilting (I will omit names of course!) This past week, I posted your question about stack and whack. Follow this link to see what other quilters said about Stack n Whack:

I want to do one!  I even have the fabric for it.  There is one that uses 4-patches that  friend of mine showed me.  I just need to get caught up on pressing items before I start a new project from the ground up.
