A: A Wonky Donkey.
These are, of course, Wonky Star Blocks. I am finally making up a quilt using Heather Ross’ “Far Far Away” fabric, and really wanted a way to highlight the beautiful creatures it contains, so thought these stars would be perfect. The blocks finish up at 12″, and there will also be several 12″ squares of the “Princess and the Pea” fabric in the quilt – if the pieces were any smaller, the whole stack of mattresses would not have fitted. You can find a tutorial on making Wonky Stars here.
In my scraps, I found a discarded Frog Prince that I could not bear to throw away. I decided to make a tiny block (5 1/4″) which I finished as a little wall-hanging. With a message on the back, it is like a soft card. I made it to tell a friend that I am thinking of her, so I hope the little froggy brings on a smile.
This quilt is destined to be a Christmas present, so I have at least started on my list. How about you?
Oh, and here is another Donkey joke, to brighten your day…
What do you call a three legged donkey that plays the piano?
