Block #2

I said I'd show you #2 today so here it is.

We are doing 4 kinds of wonky blocks in this quilt along,The "standard" wonky log cabin block, Wonky quarter log cabin block, Wonky squares-in-squares,and Wonky "bento box"-like block. Yesterdays block was the wonky log cabin. Today's is the wonky quarter log cabin. It's not my favorite, but 4 together are kinda nice. Tommorrow I'll show you #3. And if you'd like to, join along with us, or stop by and see all the great blocks and quilts. Maybe you'll get some inspiration.

Boy does time fly. Things have been so busy around here lately. Business in the shop has picked up quite a bit. And at 19 months old, the boy is quite a handful. Pretty much my days are taken up with entertaining him, while mom and dad are at work. If I'm really lucky, he'll take a nap. And occasionally, a bowl of yogurt, ( he thinks it's ice cream) and "Jack's Big Music Show" will entertain him for 30 minutes. Then it's fix dinner, do dishes, and a load of laundry. After that I get orders ready to mail, and it's bed time. I have managed to squeak out 1 block per week for the ORBQ wonky block quilt along that John "Quilt Dad" is hosting. Too bad I have yet to quilt my zig zag from last months quilt along. Oh well, one can dream. Here's a look at the first block, Wonky Log Cabin.

I'll show you #2 Tomorrow.
