A Wonky Block in the Mix...


Throw it all in is my motto for making this Wonky Log Cabin block as part of the Craftsy block-of-the-month project. The two blocks for May are both non-traditional Log Cabin designs, and this one uses odds and ends of strips from earlier blocks. I've misplaced or lost my camera, so had to use the smart phone to shoot one of the blocks for this post. I hesitate to buy a new one because that will be the very moment my camera shows up. So I'll give it another day or so and see if I stumble across it. Otherwise... the Cool Pix will be replaced. Do you have a favorite camera you'd recommend, just in case?

This Wonky Log Cabin will blend with the previous BOM's like both of the string-pieced ones show below. I'm starting to think that this quilt might be difficult to fall asleep under.. it's pretty bright. So setting the blocks together will become an interesting endeavor. It's been a fun project so far, and I enjoy the videos on the Craftsy site with instructor Amy Gibson.

Beautiful...and I don't think I would have a problem falling asleep under it because I would feel I was covered with a rainbow....

Nancy, tobacco sticks are long 2x2 sticks that tobacco was strung on before putting in the barn to cure....They were an open invitation to a child's imagination and I enjoyed many summer days making playhouses with them....
