Stack and Whack
Again, not exactly the correct title for the quilt, but that's the best fit for it. Stack and Whack is a type of cutting where you carefully lay out several layers of fabric and match the design up perfectly. Then when cut out the triangle shapes, you get the triangles placed in different areas of the original fabric and therefore different looking stars on your quilt top. The focus fabric in this quilt is actually all the same fabric, but because of how it's cut, it looks completely different.
This is one of those quilts that you don't want to finish because you are having so much fun quilting it. Mary and I decided that doing continuous curves in the stars of the quilt, and then a design I call Mimbari for the background. Ferny feathers in the borders complete the look.
