Leia's Wagon Wheel quilt

Here is one of my big fantasies….one day I am rummaging in an attic and find a box of old quilt tops waiting to be quilted. I love that dream…well my friend Leia actually got to live this dream! She was at her moms house and her mom mentioned the boxes in the attic filled with an aunts old quilt tops. What???? Well, this is one that she let me quilt up. There is another one ready to go downstairs.

I love how quirky the fabric placement is in the wedges.

It was a bit tricky to think how to quilt it. I finally asked myself how she would have done it if she would have had a long arm at her disposal back when they were pieced…so I settled on the ever wonderful swirl. This quilt was such a treat to quilt.
