Quilting can be a complicated art. Piecing all that fabric together can be mind-boggling and keeping track of those pieces is a complicated task in and of itself. Quilters are resourceful artists, however, and have devised dozens of ways to make these tasks easier, even organized. If you are looking to make a complicated quilt but want to avoid all that math and odd shapes, it is time for you to learn how to “stack the decks” from an expert. The author of Stack, Shuffled, and Slide: A New Technique for Stack the Deck Quilts, Karla Alexander, is armed with a handful of brilliant and beautiful quilt-creation ideas. By using the smart technique of stacking fabric squares and then chopping them before rearranging the pieces onto a funky project, she offers 15 quilts you will want to make.
The instructions and tutorials for these quilts are by no means uncomplicated. Each quilt comes with important information on how to prepare the cut pieces for the quilt, arranging them, and finally sewing them together in the proper way. These quilts are not super quick but the instructions are clear. With helpful diagrams and concise language, these quilting tutorials will be easy-to-follow despite their complicated nature.
Designs in this book range from the funky and fun “Between Dark and Dawn” black and white quilt to the more traditional-looking “Rendevous.” There is a quilt look in this book for just about any personality. Whether you are making a sweet and subtle piece or a quilt that adds a surprising pop of color to your home décor, you will find it in this book and be cutting, sewing, and creating in no time!
Stack, Shuffle, and Slide: A New Technique for Stack the Deck Quilts is a collection of quilts unlike anything you have ever seen. These “stack the deck” quilts not only use the technique, but use them in a way that best represents the neat quilting trick. The designs rely on the unusual swatches of colors and arrangements instead of just using them. These designs speak for themselves.
