Scrappy Color Wheel Quilt...
This was a great quilt to make...just seemed to take more weeks to finish than I thought it would, but, yes, sometimes life gets in the way of sewing :)
I just LOVE the way my Scrappy Color Wheel Quilt turned out!
Scrappy Color Wheel Quilt for my sewing room wall!
It was made using Rachel's (from Sitiched in Color) Wheel Quilt pattern given to those enrolled in her Curves Class...but here's a link to the pattern if you'd like to buy it and make one for yourself.
My quilt was made almost entirely of scraps...I only cut into a few new FQ's to get the blacks and dark purples I needed..so, I will also be adding this to her Scrap Attack Festival next week!
My finished quilt is 33" x 33"...the pattern would finish about 40" x 40", but I wanted mine a little smaller for the space where I was hanging it. I did go by the pattern, then just cut it down around the outsides. I also curved the corners, rather than keep them square, to kind of echo the wheel...
My oldest beautiful daughter just turned 4 on Sunday and was excited to get outside and help mommy take pictures...it's a perfect size for her to hold up!
(Liz on her birthday...Amber & Liz on Friday...Amber 'coloring' at Pizza Hut on Friday)
And we got some nice pictures on this beautiful day!
The bottom one of this mosaic is it in it's new home, just above my computer, in my sewing area. I put two eyelets in the upper two corners and hung it on two screws.
** I'll be adding this post to the linky parties as the open for the weekend! Including Amanda Jeans Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts...I wanted to share this LAST Friday...but wasn't able to get it done till this week! I've also included this over at Sew Modern Monday @ Canoe Ridge Creations...Have fun hopping around the different linky parties! **
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ,
and stewards of the mysteries of God.
Moreover it is required in stewards,
that a man be found faithful.
1 Corinthians 4:1-2
We need to be stewards of the things the Lord has blessed us with. I've noticed that things are going more smoothly around the house with a schedule we have recently started to try and follow...my only problem is that I haven't yet easily transitioned blog post time into it, but I don't want this space that I have been stewarded with to go by the wayside...so I will be trying to find where to fit it in :) I always feel a tug at my heart when I read about being found faithful to the ministry of God.
