Wonky Log Cabin!

Last week at my LPG we were chatting about wonky log cabins and then I saw a lovely tutorial

by Quilt Dad. My puppies seriously need a new quilt for the lounge beside me and they are getting old so I thought I would make them a new quilt!
I am really thrilled with this Tutorial - while wonky not too wonky. Also, I have been wanting to use little snippets of gorgeous, cute Japanese fabrics, so here is the start. This block measures 12.5" and should be quick to whip up - though being sort of particular with my stitching, I must admit I sometimes have great difficulty with 'wonky'!

My grandson, Byron who received the nasty burns a little while ago is doing really well (brave little man did need surgery on two of the wounds) and hoping to get back to his AFL (football) this weekend - all of 8 years old and following in the footsteps of Bailey who flies to Sydney next week to represent our state. To those wondering about the raffle quilt I made, this trip is fully sponsered by the State League - I'm sure I will find a nice use for the quilt elsewhere seeing it won't be raffled.

Happy stitching, Lovelies! I'm hoping to play with fabrics this weekend.

Enjoy stitching this up.

I have a whole tub of odds and ends strips to use up, and wonky log cabins would be perfect for that! Yours looks great! :0)

I, too, have a problem with wonky and also with random. Random just doesn't happen -- before very long I am being precise again! Liked your wonky blonk, however!
