After making the patchwork wheel block for Adrienne @ Chezzetcook Modern Quilts during September's Global Scrap Bee , I decided to try the same block in black and grey, just for fun. I was curious to see what it would look like, after seeing different versions of the patchwork wheel block.
The patchwork wheel block has become a Maxi Trivet, to help with big saucepans that always seem to be falling off normal sized trivets!
The quilting lines are to make the wheel stand out as much as possible. I really like the difference the quilting has made even though I'm still wondering if I should quilt right to the edge and not leave the smooth black border.
And this is the back. I did actually have enough black (in case you were wondering!) but couldn't resist "patching it".
The same block made my Global Scrap Bee block:
And I particularly liked Dolores' version with the white background, I came across at her blog True Blue Canadian. It's brilliant and you can decide whether you're looking at wheels or crosses! Love the fabrics she's chosen too.
