Free Form Blocks

A few weeks ago, Sue set about making some blocks to donate for a raffle quilt.  The occasion is her sorority's 50th anniversary coming up next March, so of course the blocks had to be in the sorority colors of pink and green.  While Sue was reorganizing her batiks, she pulled out the pinks and greens that seemed most suitable for this project.  The blocks were to be 10 inches square.  She decided to do some free form/wonky piecing rather than precisely cut pieces.  The 2 blocks she chose to make were a rail fence and a wonky log cabin.  The rail fence block pieces have some gentle curves and random width strips.  Likewise, the wonky log cabin has randomly cut strips.  Sue says it was fun and freeing to piece these free form blocks without having to aim for precision and matched points, and looks forward to doing more!


  1. Love the wonky blocks. I bet the quilt will be fantastic with all the movement from those blocks.

  2. They look like a watermelon, and are very pretty! Great for summer! I've done this method before with scraps, it was a lot of fun.
