Quilt-As-You-Go Wonky Log Cabin Blocks

My sewing table didn’t make it home this past weekend after all but I did manage to get some sewing done with my stop gap setup. Anyway, remember my challenge for now is to quilt my stash of strip scraps and I have been doing just that with my experiments so far. This weekend I decided to take it a step further, probably because I was inspired by the idea of improv piecing from Carole’s Book. What better way to get rid of some of my scraps than a fun log cabin block piece. To make it even more fun I figured wonky log cabin quilt was just the thing! I did say I particularly liked the color palette of my EPP project from Work in Progress Wednesday and  could likely make a quilt in that palette.English Paper Pieced Hexie

More so, I happen to have a lot of strips left in those fabrics so why not right?

I’ve only tried a Quilt-As-You-Go log cabin once and it was so quick to put together. This time I started out by cutting a couple of 12″ batting with the thought of going as far as the stash goes or as far as my interest goes. Turned out these are very addictive and I couldn’t stop myself! I just might have enough to make a baby quilt but here is my progress so far:

I had a couple of pieces that I needed to improvise on. It was great not worrying about accurate cutting!

This was my initial plan…just make a few!

By the end of the night I think I made it to 10 blocks. With each block finishing at 11″ I only need 6 more to make a baby quilt. I’ll keep you posted of course 🙂Wonky Log Cabin

Safe to say I see a few more of these wonky log cabin blocks happening after this at least till something else takes over. What’s your go to scrap bursting block? This just became mine! Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great week ahead.

P.S: I need a design wall ASAP, do you have/know any good tutorial for a DIY one? Batting on the wall is looking like my best option for now.

  1. Fun blocks! And as to design wall, batting works just fine. I suspect cotton batting is probably better, with more cling, than polyester. Also a lot of people use flannel or craft felt yardage.

    1. Thank you so much Melanie! Was just thinking about you the other day, it’s been awhile. How are you? I think I will go with cotton batting.

    1. It is fun Tierney! I think scrappy log cabin might be next in line for the not so color coded scraps. Thanks a lot for the link, checking it out in a minute ?

You know I love to read your comments!
