    Giveaway Week 11 - March 18th - 25th 2011

    Congratulations to Linboose! Random.org chose you to win the 500 Quilters Cash Points from last weeks giveaway! Can I just say along with congratulations... I'm a little jealous I think we all need a little place to get away!

    I've been feeling a little wonky lately and I wonder do you wonky?
    Wait, it's a valid question! Some people love some don't but I want to know if you like it! I'd also like to know if you've ever tried it... it can be a little intimidating breaking away from our straight lines and perfect measurements What do you think? Let me know and you could win the next 500 points!
    To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.

    Congrats to Linboose!!!!!!

    It is funny that you asked this question. I am about 1/2 way finished with a Dr. Suess quilt from Fons and Porter. There are alot of wonky seams and trimming blocks wonky also. The first time I had to cut a block at an angle I must have checked that sucker 4 times. But I am really enjoying this and I think my Grandson will enjoy it, this is for his 1st bday in April.

            Fons and Porter did a kite applique a few years back and the applique stitch they used was irregular (wonky) and it give me the confidence to do that with some of my applique

            fun to 'color' outside the lines!!!!!

            fun to read all the comments

                Wonky is good! Sometimes I go crazy trying to make it perfect and I have to stop and think - where is the fun? Also, like the sound of the word.

                      I havnt tried Wonky either.. I do love the more traditional quilt style tho... no desire to try wonky yet.

                        I've not actually tried wonky, but honestly, I'm not so crazy about wonky. I have seen a few I liked, but the truth is...everything else in life is wonky...the straight perfect lines of piecing is peaceful to me. I am open-minded however, so I won't say I'll never do it, just not right now.

                        Btw, congrats Linboose!

                          C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S, LINBOOSE!!!

                          I love wonky, and even sometimes do wonky when I'm trying to be straight. I watched Alicia Merrett yesterday and really want to try some curved - off the wall quilting.
                          Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
                          it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                            I haven't quilted wonky, but I have found that after spending a good deal of time in this quilting community, I am now using the word wonky in my daily vocabulary.

                              Ohhh noooo - I can't do wonky! I have trouble just doing multiple colors instead of a monochromatic theme. My daughter, who is an SLP, says I have 'sensory' issues. I might have to SLP her!
