Log Cabin Quilt block- Cranky Quilt

Instructions: You will be making a total of 8 blocks.

* Cut a center for each block. This center can be a rectangle, a square, or even a cranky shape. You choose. Your centers could each be different too- that would be cranky! (I did mine a cranky shape)
* Cut strips from your fabrics. For extra crankiness cut the strips in different widths. Use 2 inches, 3 inches and half sizes too. You want different sizes to offset that center block.
* Sew these strips randomly onto one side of the center.
* Continue to sew each strip to the next side. Keep adding strips to all sides until the block is over 8 inches square.
* Trim each block to 8 inches X 8 inches. You can turn the ruler if you would like and make them a little crooked. Push the ruler to one side so the other is just a skinny thing. Just make sure that the center block is Not in the center. You want these cranky, not perfectly placed.
* Sew each block to one another. Making one row of the quilt.
