Whimsical and Wonky Challenge with Island Batik

Whimsical and wonky...
There's nothing more fun to piece.
After all, what's better than not having to match seams for a change?
On a non-sewing "Quilt Club" day, we made a little road trip
 and I stumbled on a pattern that was perfect...
A little bit wonky and a whole lotta retro!
This funky fun pattern is  "Mod TV"  from "Colourwerx".
You can find it
HERE for paper patterns
HERE for a downloadable PDF patterns
This gorgeous "Paisley Dot" stack, offered up just the right amount color!
And you can get 1, TV and antenna from a 10" square piece of fabric.
Whoop whoop!

As I was putting this together, I couldn't help but think, what a fun photo quilt this would make.
The TV screens are 4"x6", a perfect photo size.
Can you see it now? 
What a hoot, that would be!
It's been a great year, being an "Island Batik" ambassador.
I love the fabrics they have provided us and 
 hope I've inspired you, with the monthly challenges.
Next month is our final blog hop for 2018, where we will be sharing,
 the new lines of fabric headed to your favorite quilt shops!
It'll definitely be a "must see" hop.
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'


  1. Oh, my goodness, that would make an awesome photo quilt...I can just see it! This is a fun quilt, well done!

  2. Beautiful quilt, love the retro look!

  3. Oh wow, that's fabulous! I went to the Colourwerx site and saw a bunch of wonderful patterns, thanks for sharing the link.

  4. I love, love, love this quilt! And yes, it would be wonderful as a photo quilt...endless possibilities. Have a marvelous day!

  5. OMG that is the coolest pattern! Yes, a very different photo quilt pattern indeed. And I love your pencil line quilting on this one, great texture (one of my favorite ways to quilt).

  6. I agree, it would be good for photos. Love the end result with a great looking quilt.
    Thanks for all the great things you have shared this year as an ambassador!!

  7. Fabulous quilt. I can see it also with fussy cut centres. Personally, I can't get the hang of wonky. Must be my type A personality, or the accountant in me. :)

  8. Joan, this is a fun and quirky pattern and would definitely make a great photo quilt! I may just have to purchase this little retro TV pattern! Love it. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Definitely a fun quilt - and you're right, I can 'see' photos added to the tv's!

  10. This is just so much fun! I love the idea of different novelty prints in the center as what's "on" tv. It also took me a few looks to realize that your corner blocks are the color setting bars on the tv (don't know what they are called). Super, super fun and a really great interpretation of both whimsical and wonky!


Thanks for stopping by today. Your comments really do make me day!
