A Wonky Log Cabin

This is the first queen size I've ever made.   Twenty-five 14" blocks.  My quilt group the Wild Threads had a block swap and this is the pattern and fabric I chose.  The group made 9 of the blocks and I made the rest.  One of my quilting friends, Shirley, has a long arm so I had her quilt it for me.  This was a belated graduation gift for my daughter Jocelyn.

 Close up of quilting pattern.
 The front of the quilt.
The back.  

I decided to use the left over fabric and just make one HUGE wonky block.  Finished size is 86" by 93".  I hope it keeps her comfy and warm for many, many years.  I am so happy with it and my daughter loves it too!  What have you been up to?

Blessings, 


PS.  I am going to enter this quilt into the Bloggers Quilt Festival.  Check it out!
