I’ve been recovering from a virus the past few days, so the wonky blocks sat a little longer than I would have liked. But all is well—Simply Wonky is now a quilt.
And speaking of blocks sitting around, I want to say that it is best to sew blocks quickly that have been cut on the bias. They have a way of relaxing, especially if you touch them a lot.
These wonky blocks only had a slight bias cut and went together without any problem even after sitting. Another suggestion for bias-cut blocks is to use spray starch on the fabric before cutting.
After sewing the blocks together, I added a 3 ½” red border with corner blocks. Not to be left out, the corner blocks each received the addition of a nice round circle. I then grid quilted with red thread. You can see from the picture that I didn’t quilt through the circles, but went around them.
By the way, the cute blue flower fabric is Kaffe Fassett’s Flower Dots. I liked it so much that I purchased it in two different colors.
The only thing left to say about Simply Wonky is that it comes together really fast and is enjoyable each step of the way.
