I have a love hate relationship with ‘wonky’. It is very popular in the flickr world. I’m not sure if it is my type-A, control freak personality because although I am those things, I can also let my hair down and go with it. I also like order and ‘neat and tidy’ but I don’t need symmetry for balance. Crazy, I know!
The May block for Hive 3 at Stash Bee is a postage stamp block with a ‘wonky’ star somewhere in the inner sections. Nancy requested blacks, whites, and greys for the block and color for the star. My purple star is a purple print on black and I like how it sets with the block. I love the simplicity of the postage stamp block. 2.5″ squares sewn in a 5×5 setting. It’s a timeless pattern with a modern funky appeal by adding the wonky star.
The block ending up coming together a lot faster than I expected. The wonky star points were not as hard as I feared. Although if you look close they all wonky the same… I didn’t do it on purpose. I guess I must control the wonky even in the depths of my mind.
Here you go Nancy! I hope you like it, and I can’t wait to see the all the blocks together.
