InstructionsEasy! Simply find a focal point in a fabric you wish to use as the center for the wonky blocks. Once cut, then random angle cut two locations (or three) from the block.
Then begin adding strips of fabric of varying widths, in a clockwise rotation, trimming as you go. Once you have added enough strips, square it up with a square up ruler to the size you prefer.

What was your inspiration?
My father. He was always a hunter and with Father's Day approaching, I decided to give him a reminder of his hunting days.
What are you most proud of?
That this quilt was not only beautiful in the end, but produced with high quality bali and batik prints among others, that I was able to purchase very inexpensively at the annual Keepsake Quilting Tent Sale in Center Harbor NH just prior to making the quilt. In fact, it was the fabulous finds there that inspired the quilt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Find a themed fabric for your fussy cut centers and let those colors and that theme inspire your fabrics. You will be pleased with the speed and fun of doing these wonky style blocks!
Great for children or adult themed quilts! Make them as large or as small as you like and use up your stash!
