I love trying new blocks.  This one is paper pieced.  It is the Cartwheel Block from Freshly Pieced.  Wouldn’t this make a lovely quilt?  My intention was to use a mix of scraps, but fell in love with the green and oranges and had to use those.  Wonder what it would look like with each blade a different fabric?  This block will be fun to try several different ways.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday.

ON ANOTHER NOTEPlay-Crafts has a tutorial for a broken herringbone block.  

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Love your paper-pieced block! Love the colors! Paper-piecing is great fun to do! Thank you for sharing and for the great links.

Have a super great sewing, stitching and paper-piecing day!
