Stack and Whack Quilt Using Turnovers!

Transcript:

Hi, I’m Deb Strain, and I love the Missouri Star Quilt Company!

Hi, I’m Jenny, from the Missouri Star Quilt Company, and we have a great project for you this week for turnover time. We have a Friday night sew at our quilt shop and there was a girl there making a stack and whack quilt. She was using this book. When I noticed the size of her triangle I went and held my turnover pack to it, and discovered they were the same size.

So, I decided that I would try the same thing with a packet of turnovers. So, what we did was, we took the turnover, one triangle, and sewed it with another triangle of a contrasting fabric. Then we took the other turnover and laid it with a 3” by 8” piece here. When you pair those two together, you just lay them on top of
eachother, sew your ¼” seam, and you’re going to cut off this extra piece. What you get is a block like this. If you put four of these together, what you get is a block like this. Now, I’d like to show you that we used the Winter Song Turnover to make a beautiful lap quilt. This quilt is just beautiful, stunning with the black fabric behind it. The Turnover pack makes nine blocks, with one extra block that we thought would make a beautiful
pillow. Because the turnover is all from one line of fabric it just blends together perfectly and makes it beautiful. We hope you enjoy your time at Turnover Week, at the Missouri Star Quilt Company!

    I love the look of this block but I’m having the same problem. My 3 by 8 strip is too wide by an inch!   How big should the block measure– mine is 7 1/2″. Please help!

      Are you making these out of a charm pack? If so your strip should be 2 1/4 by 7 I think….you will just have to test it our and see what works.. Good luck!
      Have a great day!

That was the 1st quilt I have ever made.. and I love them.. but hated the thought of pulling the book out to refresh my memory.. I am anxious to give it a try with the Turnovers!

      Thank you for your kind words! We are trying to put out 2 tutorials every month! For the Stack and Wack, I think I used about 2 yards of background fabric.
      Have a great day!

    Jenny, I just love your tutorials! I have already used several and look forward to doing more. It is obvious from your tutorials that you “LOVE” what you do. Isn’t quilting fun! I almost feel sorry for folks that have never tried.

    • Sarah

      Thank you! Mom does love it!! It’s true, I feel sorry for people that haven’t tried quilting too!! 🙂

  • Jackie

    i love this but the instructions look and sound confusing….with charm packs, turnovers and yardage….not sure where the charms go or how you get the turnovers with a seam down the middle
    love your tutorials

    • Jackie MSQC

      Hi Jackie! Give us a call here at the shop if you need further explanation on this tutorial!

  • Melissa

    Hi from Hawaii!!! I love to watch your tutorials and have gotten so much inspiration from them! I’m a beginning quilter and would love to try this for my son using the black background. Now is that just regular yardage that you cut the 3″X8″ from or is that from another kind of pack? Also how many turnovers to make a full size quilt? Thank you so much for your informative videos!!! I look forward to many more…

    I have an accu go 6 1/2 triangle cutter. the sew triangle is 6 inches what would the cut out be for the 3×8 piece be for the 6 1/2 triangle?

  • Betty Manoulian

    I’ve watched this tutorial several times. It appears that in step #1 a turnover triangle is sewn to a 6″ triangle of BACKGROUND fabric; then in step #2 a contrasting turnover triangle is sewn to the 3×8″ rectangle of background fabric. Am I wrong? It would be nice if Jenny would do a more detailed tutorial on this.
