Wonky Wonk September OMG Project

Happy Third Birthday, Dominic! Back in June, I followed Jayne at Twiggy and Opal‘s lead when she shared a beautiful quilt.  She shared a tutorial on how to make a wonky block the easy way.  After twisting my arm she nearly forced me to get my own wonk on.  By the beginning of July, we had our own version of a Wonky Wonk quilt.

This is Dominic enjoying our singing for his second birthday.

Random Wonk

I have a huge issue with random and quite possibly wonky wonk as well.  We can’t just go willy nilly cutting and sewing without regard to anything.  I’m not even the cutter in our duo team!  Jayne’s tutorial uses charm packs . . . we have a kazillion of those nicely stacked in the closet. Sue gave me a few charm packs to choose from and I selected ABC Animals.  We “wonk-ified” the charms after sashing them through trimming.  You will find all the details in our earlier post.

Wonk Wonky Quilt Top

I sure do enjoy all of these different fabrics . . . one of the delightful things about a charm pack is the selection of fabrics.  A good mix and yet they all coordinate and play nicely together and with each other. In spite of having very little motivation lately, a wonk quilt top has emerged and is waiting to be quilted.

Now the BIG question arises . . . how should it be quilted?!  And will I find the motivation to do so?!  Our September OMG project is to layer, quilt, and bind this wonky quilt.

Join us each Tuesday for our hosted linky party called To-Do Tuesday.  Our other Linky Parties can be found by clicking the link above or along the sidebar on our website for more quilting fun – check out what our friends are up to.  Like/follow us on our Facebook page and you can share your photos of what you’re working on.  We would love to see them!

    Dominic is such a cutie pie!

    Wow, Dominic is already 3!!! So grown…and so dang cute! Salud, amor y riqueza de corazo’n…much health, love and riches of the heart! May his long life be filled with smiles and love!

  9. Because of the ‘movement’ the other Laura mentioned, this pattern might be a good one to use random novelty prints with – no need for a theme in content as the ‘movement’ guides the eye to each individual block within the whole of the quilt.
    Geesh, I’ve been isolated for far too long, here I am waxing philosophical about your Wonky Wonk!
    Great job, Roseanne!

    Normal is boring. Wonky is fun and exciting!!!
    Keep up the whimsy 🙂 Stay wonky, my friend.

  12. Such a “charming” quilt. Love the colors. It will be such fun to see what you come up with for a quilting design. Do you have someone in mind the finished quilt?

    Happy Birthday big boy! How time flies! And now there is yet another quilt to add to my ever-growing list of Gotta Makes. And I am sure you know I have trouble with random too…

  14. Those cute little wonky blocks dancing across that quilt top – love! Will be fun to see how you decide to quilt this one, whatever you decide!

  15. Fun quilt. OK first idea is the alphabet or a number or symbol in each block! OK, this is a little old fashioned, but how about handwriting exercises….back to my coffee. Have fun conjuring up your design.

    Cute wonky quilt top! I saw Jayne’s version too and it is so hard not to want to jump right in. So far I’ve resisted as I have a pile waiting attention. 😉

  17. Laura says:

    I really like the wonky quilt, Roseanne! Lots of ‘movement’ going on there…makes it fun to look at! 🙂
