REVIEW: The unbelievably talented Bethany Reynolds has given us "Stack-n-Whackier Quilts" to provide us with more hours of great fun and incredible quilts. From the Publisher “I'll never look at fabric the same way again!” Since the publication of Magic Stack-n-Whack ™ Quilts, quilters around the world have echoed this sentiment. Quilters have discovered wonderful hidden possibilities in their print fabrics, using a simple method of rotary cutting stacked repeats to create unique kaleidoscope effects. The thorough step-by-step directions and illustrations for each project made the Stack-n-Whack method easy, even for beginning quilters. Many quilters have found the process so exciting that they can't stop with just one project. Now, with Stack-n-Whackier Quilts, quilters have a cornucopia of new designs to try. The projects include intriguing geometric designs with three-dimensional illusions; representational quilts with butterflies, fans, and flowers; spectacular star blocks; and formal designs with classic appeal. There are new designs featuring the Mirror-Image Trick, which creates exciting effects with no extra fabric or work. The Stack-n-Select section introduces methods for using novelty prints, border stripes, and other special prints that show to best advantage with more controlled cutting. These techniques allow quilters to selectively cut identical pieces efficiently and accurately. Stack-n-Whackier Quilts guides readers on the path to fun and fantastic quilts. Color photographs show each step in the stacking process. Yardage and cutting charts for each project keep the math to a minimum. The blocks feature simple construction, with no set-in seams or curves. Hundreds of detailed piecing illustrations accompany the block instructions. Each project includes specific quilting notes, to help answer the inevitable question, “How should I quilt this?”. A general information section includes instructions for rotary cutting all shapes used in the book, as well as tips for machine piecing, appliqué, pressing, and binding. Newcomers to Stack-n-Whack will find this an exciting addition to their quiltmaking adventures. Seasoned Stack-n-Whack fans will only wonder which project to try first! About the Author Bethany Reynolds has been quilting and teaching since 1982. Before they became parents, Beth and her husband, Bill, owned a fabric and quilt shop for 10 years. Beth says, "Because I personally dislike finicky stuff, like set-in seams and curved piecing, I've always put a lot of my energy into devising easier ways to get great results. Thanks to the popularity of the Stack-n-Whack (R) method, I've had the opportunity to share my designs and tricks with quilters across the US, as well as in Australia, England and France. For a girl who grew up on a Maine island, this has been an exciting adventure and a good geography lesson. Bethany still lives on the coast of Maine with her son and husband, who manages their ruler and pattern business. She spends about a quarter of her time traveling and teaching.
