My Color Wheel

I fell in love with this color wheel pattern that I had seen on another gal's blog. So yes, I copied it!

 Four sections were paper-pieced using the New York Beauty block.

 This was my first time working with curves.  Thank God I have the treadle so that I could slow the speed down to one stitch at a time while attaching the curved pieces together.  That was the hardest part in assembling the quilt.  The inner circle of colors is if adding white to the colors. I used scraps fabrics, and yellows were a challenge since I don't have too many yellows in my collection.

 I used my Singer 201 for the paper-piecing.  Eldredge Two Spools for some of the quilting in the middle black circle since the Two Spools foot has the perfect 1/4in. foot, left side and right side of foot.  The Davis NVF was used for quilting and binding; and lastly, my newest machine Singer 224 for the decorative arrows to finish off the binding.  This wall quilt will sit above my sewing notion area in my "command center".  This was such a fun project!!


  1. Lovely. (In my case, I would have been challenged by the oranges.)
