This was made in July, 2002, while I was living in Singapore. I attended a class on how to make a "stack 'n' whack" quilt. We were told to choose a large print fabric -- which I did cuz I most always do what I'm told. :) The fabric was almost ugly before being cut. But as you can see, it turned out pretty ok once it was stacked & whacked & sewn all together. I don't particularly like this quilt -- it's borderline garish. There were so many layers to quilt that I sent it off to Indonesia (via one of the local Singapore quilt shops that offered that service) to be hand-quilted by women there who do the job to earn some money to help provide for their families. The Indonesian women did a nice job of hand quilting. Small, even stitches -- pretty darn good.
I don't think I'll ever make another stack 'n' whack quilt. I didn't care for the process. Having said that, I do remember it being fun to see the pattern form right before my eyes as I was stitching the triangle "pie pieces" together.
