That was fun

You know by now that I'm easily distracted and yesterday a photo of April's Siblings Together block popped up on Instagram. Carol requested a 20" finished block using Quilt Dad's instructions for a quarter log cabin block - oh and it has to have a wonk. Now that is a challenge for me. Fortunately I had sat in on John's class at the first Fat Quarterly Retreat when he was teaching wonky log cabins.
Carol's colour scheme is  pink, aqua, purple, white and a hint of yellow. Firstly I raided my box of 2.5" scrap strips from to retreat swaps. A nice haul from there and I cut five centres and off I went. Great fun. In the end I only needed to cut one strip from yardage so a successful use of the scrap strips.

You're right, I only need four smaller blocks to make a larger block, but as we are a few sewers down, I think, I thought one extra block would help Carol.

As I was getting everything ready to photograph and parcel up to post, I spotted a large piece of pink and purple fabric, so I have added that to my parcel for binding.

Lovely blocks Sue and just the perfect amount of wonk!
