The Make It Mini Cartwheel wallhanging is finished.

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.
