25 - Wonky Log Cabins


This month we will focus on wonky styled blocks for the Skill Builder Sampler.  Wonky blocks are traditional blocks made with non-traditional angles and pieces.  This week we will be making wonky log cabin blocks.
  

 About 2 years ago John, aka Quilt Dad, wrote a series of detailed Wonky Log Cabin tutorials as part of a quilt along (it was the first quilt along I participated in!).  He gave detailed instructions on how to make four different log cabin variations.

Bento Box Style


I haven't been able to make my block yet - we have all been sooo sick over here - but as you can tell from these older pictures, I am partial to making squares in squares.  Maybe this time I will make a bento box styled block just to mix things up.  ;)

  1. Oh dear, you poor girl. It is bad enough when one person in the family is ill, but when you all go down like ninepins, it is dreadful.
    Best wishes and lots of hugs to you all!

  3. Oh, sorry to hear you've been sick, I hope you are getting better.
    Thanks for the links. Now I just have to decide which of the styles I love most (which is tricky as I like all of them).

  5. I just posted pics of my first wonky block on the Flickr site - that was fun! I agreed with another member of this group when she wrote that she sews crooked naturally, and didn't think it would be so difficult to deliberately make things crooked! I'll be doing my log cabins and bento box in the next few days.

  6. I had to jump ahead from my catching up and try these. I'be never done anything wonky and loved how fast it went together. I did the Quarter one and just love it!
