Wonky Log Cabin

I've been seeing Wonky Log Cabin Quilts around Blogland for a while now. I wanted to make one right off the bat, first off because I'm a bit wonky myself so this just spoke to me, secondly because I figured if I could make a quilt out of scraps and without excessive measuring this just had to be great!

Oh, how I'm loving this process. It's so easy and I really like the quirky look of the blocks. These are a real mish-mash mixing vintage and newer scraps, no color scheme, just a real grab bag quilt.

I'm sure this won't speak to everyone, but I'm having fun and hey, it'll keep me warm, right?

I really like this ducky block! A friend gave me a little vintage scrap with the cutest whimsical animals, and I couldn't figure out what to do with it. Now I know. These blocks will set off each animal in their own funky frame.

There is a really great tutorial for wonky blocks over at Tallgrass Prairie Studio. There are easy step by step instructions and great pictures of every step.

These are all of the blocks I have made so far, but this is something that doesn't take a lot of planning so you can work on one a little at a time. Although I will tell you it's hard to stop once you start. It's sort of addictive!
