I  finished a quilting a quilt for a customer.  It is just a crazy style log cabin/courthouse step block.    It would be very simple to make.   A great way to use up some scraps or fat quarters.  You could make it any size you want by changing the block size or adding more blocks.  You could even make the sashing larger or smaller.  You could add cornerstones to the sashing.Wonky Log Cabin 3Wonky Log Cabin

Peggy has very different taste than I do.  She likes the style of fabric by Free Spirit and Amy Butler.   That stuff reminds me too much of the 70’s style.  I just can’t get into the coloring of those fabrics.  But Peggy likes them.   That is all that matters.

I inspired her to make the Blooming 9-patch quilt after she saw the one I did.  Her’s came out gorgeous.  I don’t think I have seen many of the Blooming 9-Patch that I haven’t liked.  Would you believe I can’t find a picture of mine?

I met Peggy through Quilts of Valor.  Quilts of Valor is an all-volunteer organization where they match up people who make quilt tops with long arm quilters.  The resulting quilts are then given to the wounded soldiers from Afghanistan and Iraq.  Peggy’s quilt was one of the first couple of quilts I quilted for QOV.   She has since become a very good customer.

I’m glad she brought me this last one.  She has inspired me to make a similar log cabin style quilt.  I will put that on my to-do list.

Thanks, Peggy.
