    Easy Carpenters Wheel

    I have drooled over the Carpenters Wheel for months, but was terrified to even try it since it looks like a difficult block to make. I was at Quilter's Cache last week and found this 'easy' version of the block. I am patting myself on the back because it really was EASY!!!!!

    Very nice. Love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    You did a wonderful job. I love this block.(When I get overwhelmed by a pattern, I tell myself take it one step at a time and don't worry about the whole. It works. )

    That is awesome. My brother is a retired carpenter and I want to make him one. What are the measurements for the squares...if you don't mind sharing.

    Yours is beautiful! I've always wanted to try making one too... you may have inspired me that I could. My sewing skills are sometimes the pits and I've always had trouble matching points/seams etc. If this one says it is easy, I may just have to try it! You did a great job!

    Is this the 24 inch block that she lists or did you enlarge?
    Does anyone have a link to the quilt size carpenter's wheel pattern?
