Wonky- British term meaning Crazy or Dizzy....I celebrate no rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!












If I hang these quilts I am wondering if the shop quilt posted older than this will seem like a more inviting class for people. As I was waiting for photos to upload, I read an exerpt in the "The Shack" that fits wonky to a tee.
"It was chaos in color. His eyes tried unsuccessfully to find some order in this blatant disregard for certainty. Dazzling sprays of flowers were blasted through patches of randomly planted vegetables and herbs, vegetation the likes of which Mack had never seen. It was confusing, stunning and incredible beautiful." Describing wonky quilting, human nature, garden, first time parenting...

They are all so joyful and I think there is enough variety in colour and basic blocks to provide inspiration even for a non-wonky person.

Hi Em, your quilts are amazing! They are so playful and whimisical. I love scrappy quilts and wonky ones even more.
Thank you for the lovely inspiration!

Em, I tried to reach you through e-mail, but couldn't find your id. Thanks so much for the sweet comments on the blog. I'm so delighted that you would want to make similar blocks for the string challenge. I would love to see your blocks when you make them :)

Really like the wonky stars with "no color" centers. Very interesting---definitely something to remember for the future. It would really make the other colors stand out more now wouldn't it? Good luck with your class!

Hi, Dancingfarmer! The "no color" stars are from Collaborative Quilting 1 or 2 by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston. A riot to make! Thanks for dropping by!!!
