Little Wheels Quilt





Just a quick little quilt made from my scrap bin.  I used the pattern from Simply Retro ( I got this book for Christmas!) as inspiration, but sized it way down to accomodate my scraps.  I think I cut the squares at 2.5".  Sure makes for some cute little blocks. 

The binding method I used this time was to wrap the backing around to the front.  Tutorial here.  This is a quick and simple way to finish up your quilt.

  3. Superb. That way of binding has been a perennial favorite of mine since I began quilting. I use it almost exclusively for small pieces like mug rugs and doll quilts and un-batted throws. It makes for a lovely binding and pulls that backing fabric right around to the front where it shows itself off nicely. I love what you have done here with this one. What, pray tell, is the name and designer of that delightful backing fabricl

  5. Oh, Jolene. You make me want to rifle through my scraps right now. I can tell my kids are influencing me because I saw your backing and immediately thought of minecraft. Fun!

    Thank you for the link to tutorial. It was great as well.

  9. The backing fabric (those cool little pixels :) ) is a Jay McCarroll print from his Habitat line. It has been out for some time so I don't know where you would find it.
