Modern Cartwheel Block Posey’fied
I was tickled when I stumbled across Lee Heinrich’s Freshly Pieced Cartwheels Quilt pattern on-line.
I’d been looking for fast a modern baby quilt to make for a friend’s first grandbaby. Layla will be arriving in August and I’m pleased to say I have this one done way ahead of schedule! I switched it up a bit by changing the setting, made 9 blocks for the front, added frilly centers to the cartwheels making them look like poseys and used the remaining 3 blocks for the back of the quilt. The quilt screamed flowers to me so, the free motion quilting wasn’t that difficult to decide on so, I knocked the remainder of the quilt at my recent retreat.
Once the circles were cut for the flowers centers there was time for a little “quilter’s fuel”… 😉
I attached the circles with a decorative stitch from my machine. A great idea from fellow quilter Carol MaJka attending the retreat.
And now, the binding. This Kaffe Fassett print in the binding tied all the fabrics together.
The back of the quilt where I used a few extra blocks.
Then, finally a sweet little corner label securely sewn into the binding on the back of the quilt.
