I see those terms all the time. What's the difference between the two? Can someone show me pictures? Let me know the difference?

Never done a stack and whack. The OBw..more fussy I guess because you have to exactly stack the layers on top of each other...using a pin stuck thru the same place on the pattern for each layer, making them precisely the same when you cut. I think the stack and whack you just layer without matching the bits? Can someone help? Don't know.

My understanding was that OBW was strip cut, stacking the strips but S&W was a matter of stacking identical units, usually squares, then cut in either case. You can do fussy cutting, but that is really very wasteful.

Might be wasteful to some Marynel but very beautiful as against blah . Just saw that the difference is a Stack and Whack uses two different fabrics a OBW only uses one .

As I understand it, the OBW uses all the fabric. You stack them and cut them but the fabric determines what your Kaleidoscope looks like. The octogons(?) are sewn together touching each other, no background or sashing.

Stack and whack is where you fussy cut your fabric to create Kaleidoscopes of your choosing. These usually have dark, solid fabric corners added to create a square block and sometimes have sashing added between the blocks. The Kaleidoscopes are framed and do not touch each other.

I think, and emphasize" think", Bethany Reynolds coined the phrase "Stack and Whack" and Maxine Rosenthal coined the "One Block Wonder".

Creating the blocks are basically the same technique, you just sew them together differently.
