I finally finished this stack n whack quilt. Started it when I had 1 kid.  Now I have two, and the youngest is 2.5.  It sat half finished in a box for 2.5 years, and I am currently on a mission to get through ALL my UFOs.  Really.

I know, this probably proves I have a warped mind, but I loved using the housewives fabric for the stack n whack pattern, and seeing how the little women looked cut up and re-pieced...  My favorite star has a ring of little barbie-esque heads.

That's fantastic!

I love the fabric you used (all the old fashioned household items) and the color combination.

I used some of that fabric to make placemats for my sister. Stack n Whack was a great choice for it! Your quilt looks fantastic!

Thank you, everyone!

KirstyD, The placemats sound very cool.  I have a friend who made some pillows with it, and it was wonderful.  I thought it could be fun for an ironic apron as well.
