Pattern Description:

Ready for Spring? Well Hello Wonk! I love that this design has its roots in something quite traditional, but still manages to look fresh and modern. Made up of twelve blocks that are each twelve inches square I call it the Wonky Log Cabin design - wonky because the strips are all different widths, and the layout doesn't follow the standard light and dark scheme used in traditional log cabin quilts. Though I did come up with this idea on my own, there is really nothing new under the sun. Since I made this I have stumbled upon many variations on the standard log cabin block, some quite similar to mine. In addition to a quilt made up of these blocks, I made this as a "quilt-as-you-go" project. This means that each block is pieced, and quilted before it is joined with the other blocks. Full instructions are provided for this technique in the pattern. The wonky log cabin is a design that is quite forgiving, so a good project for beginning quilters who are not yet confident about making perfect points and stars.
