April One Monthly Goal

Another month, another goal. I find this monthly goal very motivating so I will be continuing until I run into a busy month.  So without further ado, April's goal is finishing the blocks and putting them together for my stack N whack quilt.  First, here's the picture from the book of the quilt I'm working on. (Magic Stack N Whack Quilts by Bethany Reynolds. You can click the link to see it on Amazon.) 


And here are my first 3 blocks.  I need to make 6 more blocks, which I think I've already cut out.  Then it is sew, sew, sew.  I keep asking myself why I didn't use the magenta instead of the green.  I think the green goes well with the blocks, I just don't like the color that much.  Sigh. 


So there it is -- make 6 blocks, sew them into rows and then sew the rows together.  I should be able to do that without too much trouble. 

I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the One Monthly Goal linky party, Midweek Makers at Quilt Fabrication , Let's Be Social at Sew Fresh Quilts and Wow at Esther's Quilt Blog . Wow! That is a lot of listings for me... I usually link up with one or two linky parties.  Enjoy the browsing! 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie

  1. I always love seeing Stack and Whack quilts at shows. I've never made one, but love how they remind me of a kaleidoscope I played with as a child.

    The green fabric will look great when the blocks are sewn together.

  3. Way to go Bonnie! I love the Stack N Wack and someone told me it was easy, so I made a few sample blocks. They look fine in theory but I will have to be a lot more accurate in my sewing to make a good job of it. Good luck with your goal.

  8. Bonnie! I was the Stack 'n Whack queen of my former guild in Alberta! I taught many classes for the guild and at a local sewing shop as well. I still have one WIP to finish up and a few lengths of fabric that need to become stack 'n whack quilts! You've chosen a terrific print to give you some beautiful kaleidoscopes!
