I thought I would join the fun and share a quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival.
I started this quilt in 2014, making one block each month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I had wanted to make a Carpenter's Wheel quilt (also known as Carpenter's Star) since my earliest days as a quilter, and I figured one block per month was a good way to accomplish the dream. I drafted my own pattern using half-square triangles so I could avoid the dreaded Y seam in my blocks.
After completing eight blocks, I needed one more for a nine-block quilt. Going back to my scrappy inspiration, I made the final block using all the previous colors.
I have a great working relationship with my local long-arm quilter, Cindy Braiwick. She did a great job of adding more spark to the quilt with her quilting.
I finally put the final stitch in the binding and pronounced the quilt FINISHED early in 2018. Right now it's hanging on the wall in my dining room where I can enjoy it every day!
