A bit Wonky?

Have completed 6 1/4 square log cabin blocks which I'm doing with the Old Red Barn Quilt Along on Flickr. Not sure which layout I'm going to go with just yet. I like them both. My daughter Amelia was keen to do some sewing the other day so I let her help me out with these blocks. Its quite an easy block to sew for a beginner and being 'wonky ' means its very forgiving of slight errors. She has done most of the sewing on 3 of the blocks and a little pressing and cutting with the rotary cutter. When I asked her what she liked doing the best I expected her to say something like "picking out the fabrics" but she replied " Just spending time with you Mum". It was nice spending some one on one time together as well as teaching her a valuable skill.

There's nothing more precious than time spent with your children! The blocks look great!

Both ways look nice, at the moment I am leaning slightly more towards the one with the four blocks together.

I don't know which is my favourite layout either - they are both great!! I guess though if you do the top one - you will have to do an even number of blocks for the width and length. I too am still deciding what kind of wonky cabins I will be making - I haven't even cut my fabric yet.
