Quilt #45 - Stack and Wack Crazy Quilt
This is a super simple technique that I read about and had to try. The technique, as far as I could tell, is called "stack the deck". You make a random cut, then shuffle your stack of fat quarters. Then make another cut and do the same thing. I decided to try this out in a super simple and fast way. I only made two cuts to make nine crazy rectangular four-patches. I like the results, and I'll try this technique again in the future. I tied the quilt using burgundy embroidery floss (it's what I had on hand! :) ), and backed it with one of my favorite "cheater quilt" fabrics (a fabric that looks like a hexagon charm quilt). The whole project just took some extra time on a rqndom quilting night. The cutting I did on my way out the door one night. The piecing of the top I did when I got tired of another quilt that I'm working on. The quilting I did during "Modern Family". Done! Very simple, and a fun result! This one definitely goes on the "do again" list!
