It’s time for a new block! Don’t Call Me Betsy’s Patchwork Wheel is a fun and scrappy block made up of mix of HSTs and squares. It combines the best of both worlds for a quilter- the ease of mindless chain-sewing, along with the creative challenge of laying out the components in a pleasing design.
As always, we will provide block kits at the meetings and Sew Days, but feel free to use scraps from your own stash. What should you use? As in the example below, bright and colorful prints with a background fabric of bright solid white (such as Kona white).
This block is a classic block first recorded as Cheyenne in the Kansas City Star on September 16, 1933. It was, then,published in the Aunt Martha series,ca 1963 as Rock Garden
