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?
