Valentina – Finished

This wonky little quilt is done.


I wrote more details about the origin of these blocks in a previous post, if you want to read it, but the short story is I was gifted the blocks and they all had issues that I happily worked around.


The main issue was they were all extremely uneven in every way. Instead of trying to square them up, which was pretty much impossible, I embraced their imperfections and made a perfectly imperfect quilt.


Nothing in the quilt is square and it’s filled with a bunch of wavy lines. But I have to say that not worrying about square blocks really takes the stress out of quilting. LOL


Since the front of this quilt was all about imperfection, that’s what I did for the back as well.


I used the three leftover blocks and patched together a backing using whatever I had in my stash. Again, I didn’t worry about anything being straight.


I kind of love how this sliver of yellowy gold fabric just barely came through once I trimmed the back.


Now this little red quilt is done and is perfect just the way she is. Have you ever made a wonky quilt?
