    This is a king sized Carpenter's Wheel. I drew it on graph paper, figured out how many half-squares I would need of each color, pieced them (I think they were 10" squares) and then cut each in half, sewed it together, squared up the squares and put the top together. So far, it's a just a top but I want to get it quilted so I can hang it! I have the perfect tall living room wall just waiting for it....

    Entire Quilt, too big to be held and photographed....

    That is the most contemporary Carpenter's Wheel I've ever seen. It is bold and beautiful. Excellent design work.
