My friend Gwen and I took Bethany Reynolds' Stack n Whack class... it was a great class and we were really churning out the blocks! However... when I got home I didn't finish the quilt, so it became a UFO. So, these blocks were pieced at the 1999 Houston quilt festival, and I'm convinced they are part of the 100 Best UFO's of the 20th Century That Travelled Into the 21st Century!
