Ferris Wheel Fan Quilt and Pattern!

Hot off the sewing machine: the Ferris Wheel quilt! There's a pattern for it too. This is a fun way to make fan blocks. No paper-piecing, no fabric foundations. You make them "by eye." 

I like the spinning wheel effect you get with striped fabrics (below).

Here's another variation. The improv aspect shows up more in the example below.

Take a look at the pattern: Ferris Wheel Quilt.


  1. Absolutely stunning. I think the overall effect of the quilt has such a vibrancy.
