    It'll look fantastic when done! Those Aunt Gracie fabs are just perfect for that pattern. I really love the far left one where the pink wedge meets the dark yellow wedge! Magic happens when the right colors go beside each other! I think this is also a 30's pattern. Great job and gotta love those BIG blocks to finish faster!

    You're right, it's a 30ties pattern and made with smaller blocks it has a whole different look. I am just putting them on the board for now but I know I will have to put them on the king bed to arrange them and I will be very mindful of color placement. I can't wait. I keep getting interupted lol. Today I was helping hubby clean but am ready to go do blocks now.

    Wagon Wheel Is Done

    I can't believe I started this quilt in March and here it is July already. I never take this long to finish a quilt but things got in the way.

    I kept working on those blocks every chance I got. I made another mistake putting the blocks together and had to rip but never mind I got it right finally lol

    Here are some pics of the finished King Size Wagon Wheel. I left the hex edges instead of cutting the blocks in half and squaring the quilt. I love the look.

    I quilted it on the LongArm Monday. I just did swirly loops around the spokes and I like how it came out. I got up at 5 am this morning to bind it. What a job.

    Here it is on my bed, it looks so summer and so cool. I used lots of left over piesce to do the backing and it is really patchwork lol....

    The rest of the scraps that are left will make tiny quilts for my new puppies, Milly and Emily, they are in another post or check my blog.

    I've never seen this quilt design before. I can't wait to see the finished product. As for not following the directions, they're just guidelines, no one says you have to follow them word for word.

    It is so pretty. So glad you stuck with it, it was well worth it. I would love the hexed border, I think that would look fantastic.

    Oh WOW this turned out so beautiful. I like the big blocks and your quilting sets it off. I will have to keep this pattern in mind. I have a lot of 30's fabrics that I have collected and this would make a fine pattern for them.

    Thank you fellow quilters. I am enjoying it on my bed now. I just have a very little bit of the Aunt Gracies left now and I need to finish this line of fabrics. I am not buying fabric at all, just using up what I have, even for the backing.....

    Just for you information. I found the block in Block Base, under, none square blocks, and then Hexagonal. It is #272 and the name is Endless Chain. For those of you who would like to make it and you have BB. You can print out the size you want.

    Beautiful blocks!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I just made this exact same quiltfor my family reunion but my pattern was called kaliedeoscope. My finished hexes were 8 inches, all hand sewn. I did not want to bind all those wedge points, even with bias binding,it would take tooooo long. So, I squared off all the edges, and added a 6 inch border. The relative who won the quilt had seen one similar to mine, so she wasthrilled when she won it.
