Wonky Log Cabin Quilt - Blocks part 1

I have been sewing like a mad woman with these blocks! I've finished 8 since Monday...





 They range from about 15" to 17" (not necessarily square) and I'm going to add off-white sashing around each and then square them up to about 20 1/2". The plan is to make another 8 blocks and make a quilt around 80" square... if I don't run out of strips before then! I have added a couple of fabrics that weren't part of the original plan just to attempt to have enough fabric - I think I will (well, hope!)

I'm linking this to WIP wednesday over at Freshly Pieced :)

I love wonky log cabins. I did a quilt for my son in this style and am also currently working on something like this, it's a lot of fun!

@Heather D.

I'm new to wonky log cabins - but I love making them, and feel quite a few wonky cabin quilts will be made... I have discovered I'm a massive fan of improv piecing :)

I love the colour scheme of the wonky log cabins - pink and green aren't colours I'd usually associate together, but they look perfect in your quilt!

I've not tried a log cabin square yet. One of the ladies in sewing club enjoys making them.

Thanks Christie,
There are lot of Amy Butler prints in there (Lotus and Midwest Modern), some Joel Dewberry, Kate Spain and Momo.... I think I put most of them in an earlier post.
Cheers,
Jess
