Another Cartwheels Quilt

Another Cartwheels quilt
A new twin-size version of my paper-pieced Cartwheels quilt pattern is now available for your viewing pleasure in the current issue of Quilt Magazine.

Another Cartwheels quilt
This version of Cartwheels is made in Joel Dewberry's new line, Bungalow. I'm usually not a big fan of autumnal color palettes, but this line takes fall colors in a direction that I love—they feel like autumn, but they're still bright and fresh.

And if you're looking for a fabric line with lots of stripes, this is the line for you. I used all those stripes to my advantage by creating radiating lines in the Cartwheels blocks.

I always love seeing my patterns with completely different color choices than the first time around. In case you missed it, the original Cartwheels was a baby quilt in gray, pink, and yellow, with the color placement in a careful pattern. So this version looks like a whole different animal! I think the randomly-placed colored blocks work just as well as the more structured placement of the original.

If you'd like to make this version of Cartwheels in Joel Dewberry's fabulous new line, Christa at Christa Quilts has another easy-peasy quilt kit available! Click here to check it out. In fact, Christa is offering two Cartwheels kits: The complete kit for $134.95 includes everything you need make the quilt top and binding (including a copy of Quilt Magazine with the pattern in it), or you can choose a starter bundle, which includes 15 half-yard cuts of the Bungalow prints only, plus a copy of the magazine, for only $84.95. And she's offering free shipping on both. Kits make it so easy to put together a quilt, so pick one up while they're still available and make yourself a nice, warm, fall-ish quilt!
