Yes, it is my 'King Kong Wonky'! This is a king size quilt that 21 people contributed blocks to and it took me over 12 months to complete [due to procrastination]! Thank you to the girls in the Bee Europa 2012-2013 group and the Kinky Bee Honey Bees group for sewing me loads of blocks, and thank you to John Adams [aka Quilt Dad] for teaching these blocks at retreat and starting my wonky log cabin quilt on its journey! And of course a big thank you to long arm quilter Debbie for quilting this beast so I didn't have to!! Mr Toyota sends you a hug!!
I went with a scrappy binding because I love scrappy bindings!! I love wonky log cabins - shame the colours don't show up true on the screen. I used several different shades of greens, greys and purples plus a few white on whites for my quilt and these pictures don't show that.
I love the on-point square grid quilting - I can't wait to see how it washes up and crinkles! This is by far the most expensive quilt I have ever made once you factor in the postage costs to get the fabrics to people across the world plus the long-arm stitching. This quilt is also the biggest quilt I have made to date which I am pretty proud of. I am excited to have it on my bed so I can snuggle under it and know that it was handmade and homemade - the best things usually are :)
I of course left it to the very end of the month to complete but hey - it is COMPLETE. Finito benito. Done. Finished. Hallelujah. I think I will wash it tomorrow and dry it so it goes all crinkly and then I will sleep under it for the first time. Sweet dreams!!
