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.
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.
