Our Wednesday Quilt group got on a binge this winter and we decided to do Stack n' Wacks. and we did alot of them. Personally I only did one but several of the ladies did more than one. Mine is called "Running with the wind." It was a horse fabric. The background fabric was way outside of the box for me. It was a pumpkin or paprika blender fabric which would not normally be a color I would look for but it was perfect with these block.
Initial Layout without corners and insets.
The first border is a light teal blue and the large outer border is a great choice which that brought out all the colors in the blocks except the darkest browns and black.

Fabric was of horses
After completing this quilt I can see why so many of the girls decide to do more than one. They are addictive. Once I get it quilted...I'll post a picture again...
I have many passions and not enough time for them all. I sew alot and love fabric. I do family research in the winter or when ever the weather is bad. If the weather is good you may find me gardening or wandering through a cemetery to see if I can find the oldest stone or someone I might know. I am passionate about Alternative Energy and Simple Living. If I were 20 years younger, I would be working in the Wind Industry for sure.
