I was so excited to try wonky trees and houses that I made my Wonky Bee blocks for Melissa last night.
I used my newly formed skillz in making Jacey's blocks to do the tree. Doing the sashing was the challenging part. I really really should have planned out what I was going to do and/or made some practice blocks first. Making 8 inch blocks when you're used to 12 inches is actually kind of hard. i'd be piecing along happily and then realize: hey--i'd better stop now b/c i'm almost out of space. i wasted a ton of the white she sent on the tree block when i half-assedly did the sashing.
this became a problem because i could not for the life of me find my stash of solid white. so the house got sashed with pieced scraps from the wasted part of the first block. so Melissa--i am really sorry about the sloppiness. Note to self: Don't try to wing it in the future. at least i can say with 100% certainty that my blocks fit the wonky theme.
despite it being a challenge, i really enjoyed making these two blocks. my favorite part was definitely fussy cutting the little characters to put in the house and under the tree. i would love to have my own wonky town quilt someday.
