Pink Wonky Log Cabin Ta-Da!

I have managed one finish in the second quarter of FAL with Adrianne already- woo hoo! This is number 5 in my list for this quarter ( original post here ). I'm Queen Bee for April in Siblings Together Quilt Bee and had to come up with a large block, so I chose this quarter wonky log cabin. I liked the block so much ( and it was brilliant for using up scraps), that I ended up making a whole quilt and therefore will end up with 2 of these quilts to give to Siblings Together.


Here is the finished quilt:

I made a pieced back from 2 yards of Denyse Schmidt fabric I bought in the States some years ago and left over scraps from another extra wide backing.

I quilted it very simply just with wavy lines as the front is busy enough and any fancier quilting would be lost. The binding is a purple solid I had in my stash, but I'm not sure which particular colour it is.

This is such a lovely cheerful quilt and I  hope it will be loved.
