The Birthday Girl
(commonly known as Broken Wheel)
53 x 66
I didn't make a single block.
Ladies from 3 different birthday clubs - two last year and one this year - made the blocks.
A "birthday club" is a group of ladies who makes blocks for each other as requested and sends them off to the birthday girl in her birthday month. For all three groups I chose the Broken Wheel block on neutral background and colors of choice. It was fun to see what each lady chose for "colors of choice". I received more than these 20 blocks but these played together the best and the rest are in the orphanage for now until I figure out what I want to do with them.
I added a one inch sashing and cornerstones.
I pieced some batting by zigzagging it together and then quilted it on my DSM with lines going in all different directions.
I wish I would have had the ladies all sign the blocks they made on the front but I still have all of the envelopes they came in so I can put their names on the label (if I ever get around to making it).
I had just enough of this fabric to piece together for the backing. And now it will make a nice lap quilt for me this winter.
