Beginner and advanced quilters will find this quilt addictive! Easy to make, the result is dramatic. Pinwheel Stack and WhackThe trick is in the choice of fabric. The focal fabric works best when it is loud and obnoxious. The cutting can be nerve-racking, so join us for this class and we will hold your hand through the tough part.   Layer the repeats, cut triangle shaped pieces from the same part of the repeat, and create a kaleidoscope effect that is irresistible! Think ‘out of the box’ and challenge yourself to buy the most obnoxious fabric available…who can resist a challenge like that??
