Wonky Quilt Block Step 1

Cut the center square for your block, my center square is 7.5″ by 7.5″. I am aiming to have a 10.5″ by 10.5″ wonky quilt block when I am finished.

Then add strips along all four sides that are a little more than half the width of your center block. I made my strips 4″ and then sewed them on in this order.

Attach the first strip to the top of the center square (Use 1/4″ seam allowance for all of your seams).

I pressed each seam open, but if you prefer to press to the side you are more then welcome to do so!

Attach the second strip along the left side.

It’s time to make this quilt block WONKY!

So grab your ruler, place it on top of your block. Angle it how you want it. For myself each corner was twisted by about 1.25″ & 2.25″.

You can find the ruler I am using HERE if you want the same one.

Use some painters tape and mark this on your quilt block ruler so each block can be lined up the same as the last. This way all your blocks can be cut the same.
