I deliberated all day (okay all month), about the possibilities of my stack and whack project. Today, I pulled out the appropriate fabric and went at the process - with the help from a Debby Kratovil post. This is the fabric I used - a wide border fabric with lots of background.
This is my first block # 1. I have to say that I had to approach the cutting process in a different way. I'm not sure I can put it into words. I pulled a Frank Sinatra, since I was unable to get the "pin matching" method to work for me. :-) But I did follow through on the 'whack' part!
The background is actually a med-dark green. I'm not sure it was a good choice. It is what it is. lol Now on to block # 2 ?
