Starting a quilt is one of my favourite parts of the whole quilt making process. This quilt is particularly fun to start, the fabric choices have been made, there’s just the cutting and piecing to focus on.
I’m using template plastic to mark the fabric and scissors to cut each piece out. It sounds slow and laborious but these blocks are huge at 20″ finished, there are only twelve blocks to make. I’m not sure my templates are particularly accurate but I’m embracing the charm of the imperfectly handmade.
Pattern: Wagon Wheel from the book Denyse Schmidt Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration.
Block Size: 20″
Fabrics: Hello, Bear by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery.
