Get Your Wonkiness Going

Hello everyone,
For my month, I am going all wonky(kind of how I feel).  You are going to be constructing 12 1/2 in. blocks filled with wonky houses.  My family and I moved to a new home this year, as I know many of you have, so I thought it would be fun to have a quilt to commemorate this new beginning.

The fabric I will be handing out will span the colors red, orange, yellow, green and blue.  They are bright colors.  I will be handing out three  colors for you to do with what you will.  The blues and greens are more turquoise and limey but other greens and blues are welcome.  Feel free to add the two colors that are missing, or to use complementary colors from your scraps.

Please no batiks, and keep the fabrics bright.  

I am pasting some sites down below for those who would like instructions.  One is for how to make an improvisational house.  The other instructions are for those of you who like to paper piece.  Make them as wonky as possible. :)

and one of my favorites.....

Have fun and thanks for doing this! Post or e-mail me if you have any questions.
