Wanna help me make wonky?

Hey there!  I'm wanting to progress one of my WiP projects and thought that maybe you might like to help!??  [if you don't ask you don't get, right?]

Here is what I have created so far - just a few wonky houses from scraps:


Plus a few wonky and wild trees:


The houses and trees are quite small - the biggest is about 4" or 5" tall (tall skinny tree) and I think the smallest house is about 2" tall.  I would LOVE to have lots of different houses/apartments/trees in different shapes and sizes to make a 'village' or 'town' and maybe a forest on the outskirts! 

So, if you feel like sewing me a wonky house or wonky tree to be included in my Wonky Village, please get in touch with me!  I would love to add them to my project (and get it completed once and for all!!).  I will be having an exclusive giveaway for all of those people who contribute.  This giveaway will take place in August so you have plenty of time to sew something and for it to arrive here!  I am in the UK in case you were wondering and I am happy to post the prize internationally!

I look forward to hearing from you!  Cheers!

I will put it on my list - once I get my FQR sample swaps and my last Bee block done, I should be able to whip up a bit of wonk x

That's a great request, I'm happy to help and make a wonky house. I could bring it to FQR.

I love your wonky houses and trees. I wish I knew how to do wonky.

SpartanBabe said...

I'm in! Let me know if you have any specific do's or don'ts!

Colette said...

I'm in! I have admired these for a long time, a little town sounds perfect.

JaneB said...

I would love to add to the little wonky village. Should the background be white?

Wendz said...

Me thinks you might just trigger a 'Get your Wonk on' trend. Are you happy with any kinda white background?

Muriel said...

I would love to make a wonky house for you! Do you want a specific background colour?

I'll make you a house and tree...as I'm not in any bees, then this sounds like a good alternative.

visiting from WIP Wednesday. Love your blog. I think the modern quilt with flying geese and tiny piecing is great

Heidi said...

Late to respond, but I pulled a few scraps for a tree block today, started sewing strips to Kona White, then stopped when I pictured the little block standing out as the only tree with white. Came back to the post, and your pic does look white. It is white background, yes?
I love what you are doing, my favorite quilts are those with many hands involved :-)
