Stack and Whackery squares

I have been making sets of four identical squares since attending a wonderful workshop with Judy Johnson in Oregon. Today the Crab & Winkles got together to have a go. It was fascinating seeing the different effects from different fabrics. I learnt something too - that the dots on selvages are not necessarily an indication of repeat size. The repeat on the yellow paisley was a lot less than the 24" I had thought.

I love the results even with wild fabric I might not otherwise use. I found there is quite a variety of spacing in those repeats.
