I finished up Wonky Wishes. I’m so happy with it!
What a wonderful way to use up scraps. I’m in love….I know I keep saying it but, this one, I think I’ll keep. I can’t keep them all…but I like this one…lots. If I do give it away it’s going to someone I really like.
I used a light brown thread and did a simple stipple. I can do more but when quilts are busy, I like a simple stipple.
I feel like scrappy quilts are a testament to the fabric I had at the time of it’s making…kind of like a documentation of my scrap collection on that day. I love the scrappy sashing. What do you think?
Brown was chosen for the binding. It’s a lighter brown and has cream in it too.
The original pattern was made in a 5 x 6 layout making the quilt 78 1/2″ x 93 1/2″. I made mine bigger (surprise). It’s a 6 x 6 setting instead making mine 93 1/2″ square.
This is my favorite kind of quilt…scrappy, repetitive sewing, not a real color scheme, and looks good in any fabrics. This one fits the bill.
…best yet, it’s Ruby approved.
Here’s a link to an old post I did about Wonky Wishes. There were some reader questions I answered about the quilt.
Can you believe that this has sat waiting to be quilted since March 10th of last year? UGH…no more of that for me. I’m going to try to get all my UFOs that are tops quilted next week while I am off of childcare so I can do my medical testing. Doesn’t that sound like an awesome goal?
If you remember, long ago when I started this I said I’d give away my pattern when I finished the quilt….so now’s the time. Please leave a comment and tell what your favorite Bonnie Hunter quilt is. I’ll pick a winner next week.
