Scrappy Wonky Log Cabin Quilt Top

I finally finished my scrappy wonky log cabin quilt top, and I HEART everything about it!!  I love the scrappiness!  I love the wonkiness!  And I love how the bright blue solid brings it all together.

You can read about why I started this adventure here.  I share some tricks with you in making wonky blocks here.  And I share with you how I squared up the blocks here.

Now it just needs to be quilted and bound.  I plan to quilt it sometime in August.  I’m thinking an all over edge-to-edge design will do just fine.  There is already a lot going on in this quilt, so it doesn’t need anything fancy.

Although I love this finished quilt, now that the top is finished and I can get a good look at the whole thing put together, I think it would look really neat to make the wonky blocks in a wider range of sizes.  Most of the wonky blocks finished at 11-12″ and then I added the blue to make a 13″ finished block.  But it would also look great if some of the wonky blocks finished at 6″ or 8-9″.  And then to not center the wonky block into the blue 13″ square but offset it a bit.  There would be more solid blue in the quilt, but the variety of sizes, and offsetting the wonky blocks, could make the quilt more visually interesting.  Hmmm… I might have to make another one day.

And that’s another thing I love about quilting.  You can finish a project and completely love the way it is, and then think “if I change it up a bit here and there, how great would that be?”  I never run short on ideas when it comes to quilting.  I only run short on time.

Linking up with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and  Finish it Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
