I recently attended my first Stack n Whack workshop and learned how to make the 4 Patch Posey block.  Before putting all my blocks into a large quilt, I decided to make a small wall hanging first using a single block with multiple borders in order to test the process.  I also decided to try my hand at basic Trapunto by adding extra batting to the gold/black borders and the purple border.  I think it makes the block look like it is "framed" and gives an interesting 3-dimensional look.  Now that the 25" x 25" wall hanging is done I am starting to work on the full size quilt using the rest of my blocks in a similar layout. The picture below is my design wall showing my progress so far on the larger quilt. Still have more blocks to complete before adding the borders.

Thanks Marge!  The focus fabric is one I might not have normally picked for any other project, but it really shines for a Stack n Whack.  I have 48 blocks all very different cut from this fabric waiting to be put into a quilt.  :)
