    Elis Wheel Quilt

    My latest quilt top. This is a free Moda Bake Shop pattern. After smoothing it out on the design wall I saw I really need to redo two of the triangles on the bottom row (took the picture anyway). This was the most challenging I have done up to this point with all the bias edges it was a bugger to keep from stretching the blocks, even with a ton of starch. It was still a lot of fun to make.
    Thanks for looking Name:  Elis Wheel 2-2013 sm.JPG

    You've done a great job with all those bias edges. It looks terrific! Did you use one specific line of fabric? It goes together so well.

    Audsgirl, Thanks. I used the "Ruby" line by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. It has been discontinued but you can still find some of it online in a few places.

    Nicely done! I am totally obsessed with the Ruby collection; I have managed to snatch up quite a bit of this collection before it becomes scarce. I am planning on making a quilt for ME as I have never made a quilt for myself. I'm just patiently waiting for the perfect pattern!

    Thanks. The Ruby line is my favorite, I have collected a good supply of it, so I have enough to make a few more quilts yet. I love all of Bonnie & Camille's Designs

    Your quilt is so beautiful. I don't know why we buy patterns when there are so many free available. Great job!
