Patchwork Wheel Donation Blocks Continues

I am continuing to work on the Patchwork Wheel blocks. As I have said, I need 20 and I have about 12, so not much more work. There are a few seams in these so each one takes a bit of time.

These are very bold blocks. I am just using the kits I was given. I may add some solids or some tone-on-tones to the last few blocks. I could scatter those as yet unmade blocks throughout the quilt top and perhaps they wouldn’t look too out of place.

In a way, this is my first truly modern quilt. I assume all of the fabrics are considered modern fabrics. I don’t know really as I am not an expert on modern fabrics.

The combination is really bold. The choices the person who prepared the kits made a lot of bold choices with these fabrics.

I’ll have to think about whether to put sashing between the blocks or preserve the interesting secondary source that is produced when the blocks are set right next to each other.

  1. I am emailing you what I did to this quilt in photoshop. At first I thought sashing would take away from the pattern. Now I am not so sure. If you want the circles to be showcased, a thin sashing will make them pop. Either way, you will have a neat quilt when finished!
