WONKY : Pronunciation [wong-kee] –adjective
You've seen them, you've admired them, you've thought about creating one - but haven't quite gotten up the nerve. They are called Wonky Quilt Blocks which turn into Wonky Quilts. For traditional quilters, “wonky” and quilting just don’t mix – until recently.
In a wonky quilt block, the science of exact fabric cutting is thrown out the window, and "cut it until it fits" is in. For some quilters, that’s a tough step to take. But when you watch this step-by-step, easy-to-understand video tutorial from the Sketchbook Maggie’s web site, you might just want to grab some scraps and give it a go.
