Thirties Thursday - Wagon Wheels

A few of us members of the Stashbusters Yahoo Group are participating in a 30s Reproduction Fabric Bin Bust Challenge.   I'm also participating in the Stashbusters UFO Challenge. I have a lot of UFOs that use 30s fabrics. 

Every Thursday I hope to post work on some of my UFOs/WIPs that use 30s fabrics - Thirties Thursday...catchy, huh? 

Quite some time ago  (July 2013) I had made these four Wagon Wheel blocks using a solid and a 30s fabric.  I used a vintage McCall's pattern.   I got the crazy notion that I wanted to try something with curves for the first time.  I wasn't sure I liked making curves back then.  So the blocks were thrown into a UFO box - #8 on my UFO list this year. 

This week I made four more blocks to keep the originals company and busted a little fabric besides. 
I have a long way to go before I have enough for the big quilts I like to make.  But, I have to say that I don't mind making curves so much these days.  In fact, I rather enjoy them.

I love these! I love sewing curves too! Isn't funny how our skills improve over time. Always love the wonderful fabrics in your quilts!

Wagon wheel is such a great block!. I'm so glad you're working on this again. Thirties Thursdays sounds like a good way to keep the momentum going. I look forward to seeing how you progress.
