    What to do with blocks that are not all the same size?

    Wonky them! I recieved the blocks a couple of years ago from my Guild. my "presidents' " blocks made from a black and white 2 1/2" strip. Since no two quilters will ever have the same sized block, I just though the "wonky" block would work just fine. I had a great time playing with this quilt.

    Nice job. I have a similar problem with some of mine. Will be using this idea! Thanks.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Wonderful!! It is the greatest idea and you'd never know what the plan was! I love how you used the white background.

    I used a black & white print (my backing, actually!) to sash the quilt.

    Great job! I think the wonky setting is a great solution for exchange blocks. Your quilt is beautiful.
