second time's a charm


Here is my completed block for Jennifer's virtual quilting bee.

It was my second attempt-the first block was just a touch too small, but too big to add another round of logs. So I started over. This one had a bit more wonkiness, which I like. I also like the chenille for the center.

Now I have an orphan block, which makes me think that either I will make 2 of each block throughout the bee and make my own sampler quilt at the end (which would be challenging, but fun, no doubt)...or else I may just make a quilt based on these colors, because oh, my, they are fun.

Hi there. Not a blogger just thought I'd say I adore your blog! So many pretty things. Love the quilt block. That color scheme is really fun!

You could always make a pillow? The color scheme is fun though so a whole quilt would be fun too.

Very charming! I like the wonky seams as well. How come I hardly ever heard that word "wonkey" until I started reading craft blogs? I wonder how long it's been in the crafter lexicon.
