Parker's Quilt

 

 

 

Parker's quilt.  This LeMoyne Star quilt uses a technique developed by Bethany Reynolds called Stack and Whack.  I highly recommend her books for detailed descriptions of the process.  It is a technique of cutting the fabric that creates the kaleidoscope effect within each block.  The fabric that was used for these stars was a remarkable ugly fabric in my opinion.  But the louder and gaudier the fabric, with big, bold prints, the prettier the stars come out.  It's really fun, and you really don't know what the quilt will look like until after the stars are all assembled.  It's like a surprise quilt.
