Scrappy, Wonky Log Cabin

This is my favorite kind of quilt to make. It was made for no reason, from scraps of fabric from other quilt projects.

Last fall I took a drawing class at our local art school. I have been hooked ever since. I'm drawn more to the imperfection of sketching with ink and watercolor. I took another class a couple months ago on keeping a perpetual nature journal. My entry for the week of April 23-29 is above. And through a set of coincidences I won't go into, I'm a founding member of a local group committed to sketching scenes of our little town on a regular basis. I'm continually amazed at the twists and turns life takes me.
Here is a one of my recent sketches-


  1. That is a really fun wonky quilt. :)
    Well, I am impressed with your art. You obviously came to your classes with an abundance of natural talent. I like the idea of sketching your community. Beautiful work, Maureen!

  2. one (of many) talents i wish i had is drawing and painting with water colors...i am always in awe of those who do it so well with such ease...very nice

  3. I love that quilt and your drawing is lovely!!

  4. I love your wonky quilt . . . Scrap quilts are my favorites.
