Description: Come join Ruth in creating your own “Wonkytown”. Using a variety of scraps, you will create this colorful, fun quilt that will be a welcome addition to any quilt collection! This paper pieced quilt was created as a block swap between Ruth Davis and Silvana Pereira Coutinho of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Each month, they exchanged blocks between the two of them. At the end of the year, they each had 24 wonky house blocks. Ruth added another block for a 5 x 5 layout and an outside row of trees. Sashed with star blocks, these fun houses can rock your neighborhood too! (I will be teaching Deonn Stott’s fabulous “FooTStePS” of Foundation Paper Piecing! Thanks Deonn!!!!
