Flower Wheel small quilt in process

Scrappy strip sets of assorted widths with the 18 degree, 8" long wedge ruler, ready to cut 20 wedges to make this circle/wheel block!

I used men's soft cotton dress shirt fabric ( yes, I cut up a shirt from Goodwill!) for the background.

Since I don't want a target or dartboard looking block, I moved the circle off to the side, and added a flower panel of Anna Maria Horner fabric...warm saffrons and red!

It is ready for the appliqué center, and hand quilting!

The backing is a print of hippy- dippy beads on purple! Hopefully, the Bohemian vibe is coming through on this one!!!!

Once it is quilted, I can bind it and embellish it, maybe beaded fringe...???? We'll see!


It may become a donation to our guild's small quilt auction, or for sale on ETSY!

Oh I love it all - I have hippie beads hanging in the doorway between the master bedroom and the bath (no idea why they didn't put a door in there, but I love the beads) - sometimes friends see them and ask if I was REALLY a hippie - and I proudly say, of course, still am. That fabric on the back is fabulous.

And the goodwill shirt - lovely for a background - and of course you already know I'm infatuated with the circles.

JoAnn, I am delighted that your inner bohemian hippie is thriving!
A beaded curtain! How cool is that!
