Design Wall Monday 10-03-16

The Make It Mini Cartwheel wallhanging is finished.

100316-672x1024

The first block was made Friday night and the last stitch in the binding was completed this morning.  It makes me chuckle to realize that this wallhanging (17 1/2″ x 23 1/3″) was finished faster than I can piece one Lincoln block.

I really like the interest the small squares give to the block.  There may be a larger  Cartwheel quilt in my future.

But now it is back to the yellow Lincoln block.  I wanted to see exactly how much difference there was between the diamonds cut with the Marti Michell template and the pattern template.

That tiny 1/8th of an inch was enough to make the star blocks wonky – and not in a good way.  I am planning on having the correct star blocks on the Lincoln block by Wednesday.

    I love your Cartwheel mini. The black and white looks great with the bright blocks. Good luck making the correction to your Lincoln blocks.
