Hello, Hello, I'm back new weekly post on the blog featuring quilt blocks. Every Friday I will feature a new quilt block, I got a little carried away with my first few blocks and the tutorials. I even sewed up a mini quilt with nine wonky blocks. Wonky blocks are my favorite for a couple reasons. The first reason I like wonky blocks is that there no measuring. The second, they are a great way to use up scraps. The third, which kind of goes back to measuring, is that you can make them any size you would like.
This weeks block is similar to last weeks Striped Block.
Start with some scraps that are roughly skinny rectangles. Sew them together side by side.
Once I had my strips sewn together, I went back and with a rotary cutter cut some of the fatter strips and added more strips in between.
Once I was happy with my strips, I cut the top and bottom of the row to make a rectangle.
I sewed a solid white strip to each side.
Press all of the seams open and trim the block to the desired size you would like. I'll be next week with a new wonky quilt block. In the meantime, be sure to follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram, I'll be showing you more striped or string blocks this week. If you sew any up your self, be sure to tag me #jenniferjangles so I don't miss it.
Have a great day,
