First, the quilt below is actually finished. This is our second scrap squad quilt and will be featured on the Quiltmaker blog in a few months. I did this prior to starting the other two. I did the quilting myself since it's about a crib-sized quilt. Maybe the first grandchild will receive this-not that there are any in my near future.

I wanted to do something forgiving during my learning curve and identify his scant 1/4" seam. I was perusing on line and stumbled onto Quilty with Mary Ann Fons and she gave me a great idea. Wonky Log Cabin. How much more forgiving can you get then that? Remember, this quilt is not quilted, but the top is on the piano waiting to go to Akay Creations.
Here are a few of the blocks up close.
Isn't this quilt just so much fun?
The second project has been ongoing for about a month or so. It was featured in the March/April Quiltmaker magazine and I've been calling is Star Spinner. I just needed to get to the quilt store and purchase the fabric for the setting triangles and borders before I could finish it out. I wanted something a little consistent since I pretty much used all the yellow I had in my stash.
I absolutely adore this quilt for its bright colors and whimsy. It was a fun project to delve into whenever I needed to change gears from whatever else I was working on. There are many, many half square triangles in the quilt, and some of them aren't exactly going in the direction they were supposed to go, but the quilt was pretty forgiving in the errors of my ways, thankfully.
