Crazy Nine Patch Blocks!

So I wanted to try a tutorial with some leftover fabric I had from my husbands quilt and I found this tutorial on Oh Fransson! I just love her quilts and her tutorial is awesome too!
You are supposed to make a "wonky" cut but I messed up there and made a really "wonky" cut and thought I would add some interest and curve it a little.....well lets just say you can't make that work, at least I have no idea how it would! So if you are following her tutorial when it says to make a "wonky" cut, make sure it is a straight "wonky" cut! or it will not work and you just wasted fabric!
So the pattern calls for 3 sets and I only have enough fabric for two sets so I will have to make a smaller quilt, or figure something else out, but here are my blocks from the first set, I like how they look.
We also had our first meeting at the Houston Modern Quilt Guild and it was fun! 7 of us showed up to chat and we had some show and tell of some beautiful quilts! I enjoyed my time with every one of them. Our next meeting will be a stitch in and it is in March! So if you are in the Houston Area and would like to join us sign up now!

I don't know, maybe. This one is the crazy nine patch and I think hers is the wonky one, but they are probably the same ones.

I like it. It's kind of like the Magic Tiles quilt I made for Grandma Hope. It was cut like that to make crazy 9 patch blocks. But the difference was sashing in between the blocks that set it off as a square. I'll see if I can dig up the picture and post it for you. Very nice job!!

Ya, I have a tan color for sashing I plan on adding somehow. I want to get some more blocks done. I have 9 more ready to go and I want to figure out if I can do a few more but I think I only have 6 more fabrics I can use so they might not look as nice.
