Red White and Blue

I say red white and wonky!! LOL So this may look a little familiar to a few of you... it is the same pattern (well really is their a pattern for wonky??? I think not) I used for Brandie's Block! :) I kind of got a little bit of a late start at the RWB so only two blocks... unless it is a sleepless night tonight and then maybe I will pull together one more! ;o)
Without further ado I give you the beginning of red white and wonky...
I just love those pesky little 3 inch stars in the corners! hehe They speak to me! I listen! Now I have it all mapped out and there are more in my future! Yes this is the beginning of another quilt! Sheesh! What am I thinking? I know we all LOVE to add another WIP to our lists!!

And what is a wonky quilt without a little negative space... I think I am going to even pop a few BARE NAKED blocks in there! LOL How nutz am I! SSHHHH Don't answer that!! I have not decided on what ALL of the blocks are going to look like, but I think there are going to be lots o small bits in there! And if I get REAL crazy I have tossed around the idea of trying ONE two inch star! LOL Yes, I am asking for a trip to the loony bin! Wait, I'm already there! So, why in the world not!
HEY, thanks all for stopping by for a visit!! I always have SUCH a great time on these here Hops!! Don't forget to check out the rest of the talented stitchers on today's schedule!!!

  1. My goodness girl! You're one busy lady! Love the wonky blocks and the little bits of color. Hey! That would be a great name for your new quilt: "Little Wonky Bits of Color"! Seriously, great job, Josie.

  2. Love the little bits of colour - anyone can do wonky stars. In fact there will be a contest at the end of the Hop on who has the wonkiest!! Why not use the little bits of colour block as a sampler for a whole quilt this way - very modern. thank you - I can do these.
