Color Wheel

The front of the color wheel quilt is all pieced and ready for quilting! It came together so easily and beautifully. Between the cutting and piecing it only took me 3-4 hours total, which isn't bad at all considering I was terrified of this quilt. Like most things it looks much harder than it actually is. I had so much fun piecing it and it went so fast that I'm sure I'll want to make more of these in the future, maybe with variations. One in multiple tones of all one color would be beautiful. I knew I didn't want to even attempt to hand quilt this one so I broke down and ordered a walking foot for my Bernina. I've been wanting one since I got my new machine a few years ago but just haven't been able to justify it. I figure I'll get a lot of use out of it, so it'll be worth it. Until the foot comes in, the quilt is resting in my office where I can admire it several times a day.


  1. this is beautiful.

    i was thinking i'd make this pattern for a wedding quilt for my sister in law, but am now thinking that i'll wait til they have a baby and do a baby quilt.

    trying to be realistic in the new year!
