Parsons, KS workshop students

Quilters in Parsons, KS show off some of their star blocks

Lecture/Trunk Show: “Stack-n-Whack®-ipedia”

Loads of goodies from my overflowing quilt closet! After a brief history of my design career, out come the quilts and wearables, including samples from all of my books and many of my patterns. After the trunk show, audience members can examine the quilts up close and pick my brain for how-tos.

Stack-n-Whack® Ribbon Weave
6 hour (project), All levels

The traditional Rail Fence block gets a new look when the “rails” are cut with the Stack-n-Whack technique. Framing the main fabric with two different accent fabrics creates an interwoven effect. For all the design drama, this is still a very simple quilt to piece, and suitable for beginners. From Stack-n-Whackipedia (AQS, Fall 2008).

Stack-n-Whack® Magical Fans
3 hour (intermediate) or 6 hour (all levels) (project and techniques)

The basic fan quilt is simple enough for new quilters, and fun for all. The optional mirror-image trick adds a nice flourish. Students will learn the Stack-n-Whack® cutting technique, fan piecing, bias edging, and basic applique. In the 6 hr. class, more experienced quilters can complete most of the throw size top. From Stack-n-Whackipedia (AQS, 2008).
