Random Wonkiness

Way back in January, I thirfted this pile of scraps, without having any idea of what I'd use them for. They were just one of those things I found that couldn't be left behind.

Now, seven months later, I've finally decided that they need to be made into a quilt. I think the original owner intended them to be a quilt because they're all cut into strips of varying lengths.

So here's the first block. Very random and somewhat wonky.

I've volunteered to do some sewing for a local hospice group and this is going to be a lap blanket for one of their patients. It's going to be 9 scrappy log cabin blocks, but I don't know what I should use for sashing. Any ideas?

Embrace the wonky, I say! I like wonky!!! I love all the different fabrics. It's so nice that you're making a quilt for hospice.

Wonky=character! :O) It has character. And it is pretty, too!
