    After being unable to find a simple reference sheet for the Carpenters Wheel quilt, I decided to make my own. I hope others will find this useful. I have included an image and a pdf file, if you prefer. Enjoy. :D

    *** Please Note: I did not included any measurements so that you may make the quilt (or other item) any size that works for you. :D

    In order to answer your question (a good one), I added a note to my post. I intentionally did not include measurements. :D

    The blocks are whatever size you want. My 48" one started with 6.5" blocks, which means I cut the ones for the HSTs 7.5". Could have been a shade less, but I wanted even half inches.

    BTW, 4 hours is a very liberal estimate. Mine might have taken less time if I had used only two colors, but I used eight.

    Stitchinbee, that's a helpful mockup. I wish I'd had it a few weeks ago.

    If you want a 12 1/2 inch block, make all of your squares or HST 2"

    When I was a 'newbie' I had a moderately difficult time piecing each piece individually, without realising it could be broken into hst parts.Your diagram makes it clear to beginners and experienced alike, how one can analyse the blocks.Many thanks.

    As one bee to another: Thank you for putting this on the board! As a newbie, I had never thought to break a pattern down like that before and it is helpful to be able to look at it that way!

    Thank you. I haven't made one yet. Seeing your diagram makes it easier to see that it is not that hard.

    Thanks for sharing. One of these is on my want-to-make-one list! Your chart will make it easier to do.

    Wow! the way you broke this down is real helpful, I am going to make one now. I am going to use this method to make my carousel quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    My daughter saw a quilt made from Carpenter Wheel and fell in love with it. Thanks for making it easier for me to make her one.
