Meet Wonky House 2. I wanted it to have a Seuss flavor. I added curves, window shashings, and fused trees to this one. The problem I am having is that I want to keep the two I have made so far. I have to come up with 11 to send in for the swap before March 1. I am really enjoying the puzzle aspect to these blocks. For the most part, I am piecing them. For this one, I drew the design on freezer paper. I labeled and cut out the different parts, then ironed them to the fabrics I wanted to use. As I cut each one, I added 1/4" to each side. I fused the window sashing to the windows before I sewed them to their adjoining parts. I ended up fusing the trunk for the tree on the right, but the one on the left is pieced in. If I do include this one in the swap, I hope the other person who gets it likes it as much as I do.
I am in charge of the Mystery quilt for my more traditional guild for 2012. I have decided to use one of my own designs. These are the fabrics I am going to use. The quilt is called Pinwheels in the Garden. I am going to figure out how to link PDFs to this blog so I can share the clues here for anyone else who wants to join in. This quilt will be a 48" square lap quilt without borders. Borders can be added to make it bigger, or the number of 12" may be increased to make it even bigger. I hope to put up the PDF for fabric requirements and cutting guide next Tuesday. I hope some of you will decide to join me in making this quilt.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
