First up is a 16" FIREWHEEL - a pattern from Quilter's Cache. I hope to use up my pink/red, yellow, orange large flowered fabrics (ala Kaffe Fassett) along with some batiks in Firewheel blocks. I wish I had a little more contrast where the orange/yellow batik happens to be but I guess this works okay. These colors alone are not my favorites and are a little out of my comfort zone; however, I found I like the color combo when I used those colors of scraps and crumbs last month in a donation quilt top. This quilt will bring out the wild in me!
And here's a vintage WAGON WHEEL block. I found the pattern on a McCall's CD (Ten Vintage Scrappy Quilt Patterns) I've had sitting in a drawer for I don't know how long. I've wanted to make it for awhile but thought it might be too difficult with all those curves. Surprisingly, it's pretty easy to stitch up. I'll use up more of my 30s and solids with this one. This quilt will bring out the vintage me!
Finally, this is the BROKEN WHEEL pattern from Quilter's Cache. This is another easy block so I made two of them to see if I'd like it using these chocolate, coffee, snacks fabrics in pink, brown, tan, blue - some of the same fabrics I'm using in my Crazy Cravings Crazy Quilt. This quilt will bring out the whimsy in me (and make me hungry).
So, while I'm popping wheelies why don't you pop on over to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times and see what others are working on. You might be inspired!
