I don’t know about you guys but during the year, I go from periods where I don’t sew at all and then to periods where I sew everyday. This year, I have been into quilts. This is the last one I am doing for a few months. I made it for my boyfriend as a present and he absolutely loves it so I thought I would share the pattern with you guys. Its a simple pattern I drafted on PatternJam. You should try out that software if you haven’t done so already. I used the a layer cake from the Daysail fabric line paired with navy blue yardage to make it masculine and contrasting. I am calling this pattern Square Wheel because it has a giant square in the middle and pinwheels all around it. Not that creative, right? Haha. Hope you guys enjoy the Square Wheel Free Quilt Pattern.
The quilt measures 80″ x 80″ so it is super large.The long arm quilting pattern used is the diagonal pattern from Sew Shabby Quilting. I love it! She used blue tread which ended up matching perfectly with the colors of the top.
I used a queen size flat sheet for the back. It was way cheaper than buying yardage. For the binding, I just did a bright navy blue to accent the blues in the Daysail line. As you can see the top was not sewn perfectly. I pretty much thew it together in about 2 hours on evening after work. The entire quilt top ended up costing about $50 including the navy fabric yardage and the layer cake. I only buy fabric when its on sale or if I have a coupon.
Thanks for visiting and Happy Sewing!
