About the Author

Karla Alexander lives in Salem, Oregon, in a two-story 1950s house where her studio is just outside the breezeway. The household includes her husband, Don, and the studio dog, Lucy.



Karla has written several books on the art of quiltmaking. She also has a pattern line under the name Saginaw Street Quilts and she is a designer for Creative Grids Rulers. As the years have rolled by, she has watched, enjoyed, and been intrigued by the changes in the quilt industry and has always found her niche there, one way or another. Karla is fascinated and inspired by the patterns found in everyday life--baskets, freeways, the view from an airplane window, doorframes, you name it. The patterns she sees are often reinvented as quilts or provide the springboard for many of her designs.



As a teacher, Karla enjoys immersing herself among her students, knowing there is a lot to be learned from each one of them as well.

If you buy a new print edition of this book (or purchased one in the past), you can buy the Kindle edition for only $2.99 (Save 70%). Print edition purchase must be sold by Amazon. Learn more.

Format: Paperback
I had a sneak preview of this book and have already made two of the quilts. Karla makes things fun and while working on her designs you begin to appreciate all of the talent and thought she put into making things possible for ordinary or not so ordinary quilters. The mosiac quilt looks difficult but it is not. It was a very satisfying quilt to make. Karla uses fabric that is very current, but you can make these designs using any type of fabric you like and in any colorway. I appreciate the way she explains color, one of the more difficult things for me. I have all of Karla's books and have made many of the patterns. I share these at the hosptial where I work and people think I am amazing, I laugh inside and know that it is Karla that makes me look good. I want to thank her for that.

I eagerly anticipated this new book with a new technique. Unfortunately, the cutting instructions for the "Paint Chip" quilt were incorrect. I had to rearrange and try to have enough fabrics for the recommended layouts. Furthermore, the instructions did not produce the blocks that appeared in the illustrations either. I do not recommend this book unless readers want to struggle with the instructions.

Format: Paperback
If you are looking to learn a new technique, this may be the book for you. It has 15 projects, all featuring Karla's stack-cut-shuffle method which is explained in four pages. The possibilities are endless for modern as well as more traditional blocks with a new twist. This is Karla Alexander's eighth book, and it is definitely a keeper...

I am totally smitten by the quilt called "Shattered" in this book! It is so beautiful! The colors, the mosaic look... The instructions and diagrams are very detailed and easy to follow, so I will have not problem making this quilt. I am thinking batiks...

Stack, Shuffle, and Slide is really just a cool concept to help a quilter mix fabrics in a quilt. create a modern quilt look. The appeal of the quilts are universal. The blocks could easily be sewn in any fabric genra, modern, primitive, metro, classic and so forth. The patterns are easy to follow and great for a beginner quilter.

If you've ever been scared of color placement, this is the book for you. Karla uses value within the colors of the quilt block to make them pop... one of the most important things we can learn when making quilts.

My head almost exploded when I saw 'Paint Chips' (on the cover). It is the next quilt I plan to make. Even went to the store to look at paint chips!!
Karla alway lets you know if her quilt is different than the instructions, and always encourages you to do your own thing. I have been to several classes with her, and she is truly an inspiration.
I found this book very innovative and easy to understand. It might be tricky for a beginner.

There are some very nice patterns and ideas but this book is going to be tricky unless you have at least intermediate quilting skills. Not for someone who wants to make a quick weekend quilt.

I have made Stack and Whack quilts and thought this would be similar. It is, so if you like Stack and Whack, you will enjoy this book.

Wren Rails makes me think of the Roman Road block and Simple Simon is the Rails block. Both of these blocks are among my favorites and by shuffling the cut stack, you can make easily make different colored blocks and they will still fit together without having to worry if you have put the right cut pieces together.

Each pattern has the finished quilt and block size, along with a paragraph about the quilt. The materials list is next and then fabric tips can be found in a colored box.

Of course, there is a colored photo of the finished quilt and there are graphics to help you see what the author is writing about. There are no given quilting designs but you can go to http://www.shopmartingale.com/how-to-quilt.html for free downloadable information that may help. This information still doesn’t provide any suggestions on how to quilt the quilt or provide any design patterns.

There are 15 quilt patterns. The colorways are not my type of colors but that doesn’t matter. I will simply change the fabrics to suit my own tastes. It’s the pattern that matters and these are great.
