I think this should be my year of fearless quilting. I have already tried to take that approach with my clothes sewing. I have tried new patterns and fabrics in the last year and much of my wardrobe is now handmade. There are many quilting techniques, ideas and patterns that I want to try and some of those have been on the to do list for a few years.
One is the wonky log cabin. I have promised my Mum a dress for her birthday, but she really needs to come and stay with me while I make it so I thought I would make a little wall hanging for her. I decided to have a go at a wonky log cabin and not think too much about the process. This is the result. I was really worried after I cut the block into quarters that I had made a big mistake and I should have left it as a wonky square, but now it is finished I am really happy with it and the best thing - so is my Mum.
I used scraps of some patterned fabrics and the solids (except the cream) are Kaffe Fasset and I love them. The colors are amazing. I can't believe it was the first the I have used them I will definitely he using them again soon.
