Another Wedding Gift

 Another of my cousin's daughters was getting married so a quilt was in order. I selected fabrics from my stash to audition with her mother and they met with approval. Next I selected a pattern that I had done before, a "stack & whack". 

 This pattern comes from Stack a New Deck by Karla Alexander. I have used this book for several different quilt ideas (Red Onion and Cottage Quarters). Her instructions are clear and allow for your own creativity and variation.

I'm still awaiting a thank you note but I'm hopeful that they liked it.

What a wonderful and generous gift of love for the new couple.
I'm sure they will love, how could they not!
It is awesome and you are too.

it is fun, and modern! I'm sure it's loved...much thought and prayers go into a quilt like this for a gift, I gave one and received a quick thank you in a Christmas card (it was a May wedding) months later...oh, well.

It looks great, I love the wonky block look a lot.

Wonderfully warm colors. Good gift! I can't tell you how many quilts I've given as gifts and seldom get a handwritten thank you note anymore...
