Wagon Wheel for Nicole

NYC Mod Bee: Nicole


I had a tough time deciding between Dresden Plate designs. Love the spokes, love the scallops, love the plain circle. So after seeing all the blocks you guys were coming up with, I finally made a decision that only Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary could make--I picked a block nobody else had made yet!

It was a HUGE thrill for the machine-pieced wheel to come out in an actual circle! The wheel and the center are hand-appliqued, which I thought might be more precise than machine, but it's harder than it looks. And I have a lot to learn about ironing with starch! I'm hoping it will be an interesting addition to all the wonderful blocks you guys have already made.
