Quilt top one and number two progress..........

I finished the blocks for Stack and Slash 1 and got the top sewn together.  Most of the reds are more of a burgundy and only one is a true bright red.





Then I got the first step done on the blocks for quilt number two.  I always make a positive/negative combination of blocks from each two fabrics that I pair.  I cut all of the fabrics at once, then choose pairs, sew the blocks and then choose five piles of four blocks I like together for the stack and slash part.

I really like this pattern. I've done a couple with the method but not this pattern. Is it in a book?

This is really striking. I got up and making a baby quilt top. Needed to beat the machine. Can't be outside so cold out. Chris

I think because of the colors and values you picked, this really pulls together. Sometimes these stack and whack quilts look too chaotic for me, but yours hangs together very well.

That's a great pattern.

I am sure it was nice and warm and snuggly working with all that flannel.

I think the red/tan combo is my favorite.

These are fun blocks to play with... Surprises me how one simple block can be 'slashed' into pieces to make one great block not to mention them all together !

I can see number two is going to be just as much fun.

I like the red one. I like to do the same with contrasting blocks.
