Wonky Log Cabin

40 x 58
Wonky Log Cabins

 From Scraps
For Donation

Machine quilted  on my Plain Jane DSM with some wonky squares - my first time trying these. 

I guess I didn't botch it up too bad all things considered.  I don't think a child somewhere is going to inspect the quilting so it's kind of fun to practice something new. 

And it did add a nice cuddly texture when washed.   I sewed the binding on by machine too. I don't really like the look and I'm not good at it but it is recommended for kid's quilts by the places where I usually send quilts (Wrap-a-Smile or Quilts Beyond Borders).   I think it took me longer to sew on the binding than to quilt the darned thing. My top thread kept breaking every 8 inches or so. I used the blanket stitch on the machine. Never again. 

The backing is some happy polka dots.

That polkadot backing really makes the quilt. Perfect match with the happy front. :) good find! I have trouble finding good backings, especially ones for donation quilts.
