Wonky Log Cabin Love

It's so great to hear that, nearly a year after first posting them, my wonky log cabin block tutorials are still being used and referenced. I recently heard from Heather, who blogs at olive and ollie and serves as the president of the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild, and Twitter friend @tarabonistall that the guild recently had a sew-in and used my tutorials to make some wonky log cabin blocks.

Here are a few pics of the meeting from Heather's blog:

Wonky blocks!

Great blocks, ladies! Big props to the CMQG. Looks like a fun time was had by all. Wish I could've been there to create with you guys!


  1. I just have to say hello to you, creative man! I love your colorful quilts - realy lovely :)

  2. i'm planning on using it soon for a couple of pillow covers. i'm just waiting on fabric! i'm also eager to try out the off the grid pattern. i'll be using alexander henry's "willow" fabric collection (and i'll have to cut out all the charms and honeybuns), and i think the whole thing will be a perfect picnic blanket!

  3. Yay! Thanks for the feature, Quilt Dad! Making the blocks was a lot of fun!


  4. Thank you! Your tutorial is the best, and you know that I'm hooked on them now. Our group had a lot of fun making them. If you're ever in town, you'll definitely have to come quilt with us!

  5. that's my best friend amy in the red! she taught me how to quilt!

  6. Thanks for such an easy to follow tutorial! I made my very first log cabin yesterday and now I'm hooked. I am a complete beginner quilter and your site has been so helpful! I'm linking to your tutorial today too...THANK YOU!
