My very first wonky log cabin block

This is my very first wonky log cabin block, in fact it's my first ever, any kind of log cabin block.  I have been wanting to make a quilt using wonky log cabin blocks for awhile and have been stockpiling fabric to make it, and had the design all worked out, but was too scared to try it.
I went through the fabric I had put aside for the snowball blocks, I am sure you all remember them!!  I really don't think I am going to need it for more snowball blocks, as there will be a snowball's chance in hell that I will ever go back to them. I don't think it looks particularly wonky in this photo, but trust me it is. It was so easy, I used the tutorial from Tall Grass Prairie Studio.  I also love that it is nice and bright, I was getting a bit tired of all my soft neutral colours. Trouble is I don't have too many more scraps that are similar colours, so now I can feel another shopping spree coming on.

I have also been crocheting away on this:

A cushion cover to go with my new Ikea cushions.

I am still working on the back and was hoping to have it finished this weekend, but the weather was too nice yesterday. It is the middle of winter here and the temperature got up to 28 C (82 F), today it was a little cooler and we had a high of 23 C (73 F).   Paradise, what more can I say!!!!!!!!!


  1. Love the colors in your wonky log cabin~can't wait until you show more! Too bad it might require a shopping spree. ;-) Oh darn! ;-)

    Your Granny afghan is so pretty. It looks perfect with your new cushion.

  2. I have never tried a wonky log cabin. I am hoping to make a standard log cabin one of these days! Perhaps project 152! As always, I love your crochet. I think the grannies go great with the new pillows.
