Wonky Square

By: Rachel from Olivethebeach
Wonky Square

Who said quilt block patterns had to be perfect geometric arrangements? The Wonky Square is an easy quilting block that lets you unleash your creativity. This 12.5" square block would make a great, easy crazy quilt block or scrap quilt block!

Quilt Size12.5 inches wide x 12.5 inches long

Time to CompleteIn an evening

Primary TechniquePieced



  • Assorted fabrics, at least 14 inches long
  • Scissors
  • Quilting ruler
  • Sewing machine


  1. First cut your strips - wonky, straight, measured, whatever. You'll want to cut the strips longer than 12.5" because you will need a slightly larger block. We will be cutting and re-sewing the strip block to create a 12.5" block. Aim for about 14" strips.

  2. Sew your strips together. Straight, wonky, whatever.

  3. After your strips are sewn together, you may want to straighten up some edges (or not). Then make between 2-4 cuts in the block.

  4. Arrange and rearrange the segments until you get something different than the strip block. Then sew them all together!
