Tonya's Stack 'n Whack

Tonya started this years ago and finally finished it.  She is digging out all her unfinished projects and getting them finished for her grandchildren.  I love the bright colors in this one - makes me wish she was my grandma :)  It's a big one - 80 x 102 with a bright blue backing.  I have applied the red binding to the top, so all she has to do is the hand stitching to finish it.

The original fabric is used in the borders, so you can see the whimsical fruits and vegetables that make the great kaleidoscope pattern.

The fabric makes some great blocks:

I did a dense fill in the background to make those kaleidoscopes really pop. It adds a lot of movement to the quilt.  The blocks have two rounds of a loose wiggly line.

I used a feather/swirl pattern in the sashings:
