My First Wonkie Scrap Block! Hoo! Hoo!

Well, as I have been blog-hopping over the past few weeks, I have been seeing my favorite bloggers such as Allie over at Strandz (I got the word wonkie from Allie but I spell it differently) and Sharon over at Vrooman's Quilts making these darling scrappy quilt blocks.  Also, Jodi over at Pleasant Home has created a "Sew Scrap Along" to help us turn ALL our scraps into fun, fun quilts!!

I joined Jodi's "Sew Scrap Along" awhile back but it was looking at everyone's darling scrap quilts that got me motivated.  I am not really sure how everyone else is actullay constructing their blocks, but since I love to paper-piece, I decided to make a template, a wonkie template, and just go for it!!  Well, look at how cute my first 8" block turned out:

Thanks for all the support I receive from so many wonderful blogging friends out there!!!  You keep me motivated and happy!!  :-)))

Very wise to go with what your know! Paper pieced to start you on your way was a good idea, then you can free-form. I love your wonky block in your seasonal bright fabrics - so, sew cute.
