My gray and yellow love is still going strong, as you can see, plus I threw in some pink for good measure. The background is Kona Ash and the binding is this Lizzy House print, which is fabulous for binding!
Some of my favorite stash prints can be found in the blocks and on the back, including this yellow print from Riley Blake, which I used up and must now buy lots more. : ) (Fortunately it's on sale here.) Sarah Jane's ridiculously adorable narwhals are in there too.
Since I've had a few requests, I'll be offering a pattern for this quilt very soon (I'll be releasing it on December 13). The pattern will include a paper-piecing pattern to make the Cartwheel block, as well as full cutting and assembly instructions to make this quilt in three different sizes: Baby, Lap, and Twin. The Cartwheel block is a lot of fun and deceptively simple to sew—there aren't any seams to match up when you put the block sections together, and that's always the trickiest part of foundation piecing. So I hope you'll give this one a try!
