What advice would you give someone starting this project? January - I think pressing the seams inward (towards the black) makes it neater on the back than if I had done white stripes and pressed outwards. February - It takes ages to get through the measure-cut-sew-cut-iron process to make all the triangles, but putting the blocks together is really quick, especially if you pin each row and chain piece both blocks. March - I think the blocks look best if you use as many different fabrics as possible and don't cut the strips the same width - if they're too much the same it looks like all the corners should match perfectly too, and who needs that pressure?

I have not made my wonky # sign yet, and now seeing yours, it inspires me to get fabric out and just do it. I love the blacks and batiks right now, and I am going to do mine like yours with different colors, so thanks for posting yours. love them

ok, I made mine, you inspired me. I used black and some orange and red, with batiks to match those colors. I posted them

This looks terrific! I love how you made it your own instead of just blindly following the pattern. Can't wait to see what your whole quilt looks like at the end of the year!

Never thought about using multi colors on wonky block. This looks great.
