Back Cover Information

Have you always wanted to try your hand at making kaleidoscope, pinwheel, and star designs? Marvel at this simple method for rotary cutting these versatile blocks. The kaleidoscope effects occur spontaneously, thanks to the ingenious Stack-n-Whack™ techniques.

More than 200 how-to illustrations and dozens of color plates detail the process fully. In addition to covering fabric selection, the chapters provide step-by-step cutting and piecing directions for seven different blocks, and yardage and assembly directions for 14 projects ranging from small wall quilts to queen-sized bed quilts. A chapter on quilting includes designs and strategies to bring out all the beauty of these magical quilts.
