Two Wonky Log Cabins Finished

Two Wonky Log Cabin quilts finished! 
Both will be donated. 

I've received a roll of batting so I hope to get quite a few donation quilt tops finished in the next couple of months. I have piles started for several different charities including Lifting Hands (their needs lists change but blankets are always on it), Quilts Beyond Borders and a couple of local ones. 

Wonky Log Cabin
40 x 60

This was a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project started last year. Each month I used my strings in the color of the month to make 12 inch blocks with a novelty on black background center. 

I made 15 twelve inch blocks and then joined the blocks in the rows with two 1.5 inch strips so I could get to my 40 inch width. 

Binding was scrappy.



I quilted it on my DSM with spirals in light gray thread. 

And there's owls on the back.

45 x 54


I made several string quilt tops last year and this one was one of the last to be made. I used the shortest and skinniest strings left over to make nine inch blocks. 

This one was also quilted with spirals in white thread. 

The binding is a red, white and black stripe I've had around for awhile. 

And the backing is pieced. 

And sew on...

I love how basically the same block can have two completely different looks!
Those cozy quilts are going to bring some cheer to people who need it!

Both so lovely and colorful--if i had to choose a favorite it would be the "Streak of Lightning one--gosh that really sparkles, Cathy--such nice works and the novelty center on the Wonky one is such a fun idea!! Hugs, Julierose
