More Circle-Work

"Wheel of Fortune" Hand Pieced Quilt

It seems that my two main projects at the moment are both worked in rings, and as they get bigger, they grow a little bit more slowly.  I am still enjoying making my rag-rug, but it was time to give my “Wheel-Of-Fortune” some love and attention.

Now that I have completed the 9th, very bright-pink ring, it is getting harder to photograph.  The colours in the top photograph are probably the most accurate.

Wheel of Fortune - Ninth Ring

As I have mentioned before, this bright pink is just a little outside my comfort zone, but I’m very happy with how it turned out.  Next up is a peachy ring of squares, just like the second ring, and after that, one made of the paler browns diamonds, like the centre.

Michaela and the Wheel of Fortune Quilt

Michaela might give you some idea of the scale of this beauty.

Finally, for those of you that are also a little bit like me with pegs – here is some peg-love…

“Carpets” made of pegs (not to walk on though), an ombre peg backdrop, and an Artist who makes sculpture with wooden pegs – all found via Design Sponge.

Are you doing any “circle work”*?

*the term “circle-work” in Australia generally refers to the driving maneuver that is also called a doughnut.  I’ve never done one!

  1. Ooh Claire your wheel of fortune is amazing! I adore that pink ring, as well as the dark brown one, they make all the other beautiful colours glow. Awesome! xo

  2. Hi Claire, I envy the time your seem to have available to dedicate to crafting. The circle projects are looking beautiful and so is Michaela.

    I am still working on my one and only quilt – now called the 10-year quilt (not that I have any others that I need to distinguish it from).

    Enjoy going round and round, Barb
