Wheel of Mystery Quilt

This is the quilt I was binding while I was sleeping.  I've been working on it quite a while, since February, but had it all put together in March.  It is a John Flynn template and pattern.  
The first four photos were taken in the shade of the afternoon.  The coloring of the one on the ladder best represents the real quilt.  The others seem to blue (even with yellow added).

 I am practicing my photography with these.  I like the fence idea.

I just did an inner outline of quilting of the circles.  It was a challenge.  I used my curved rulers to help me keep a curve.  I am left-handed and my machine is right handed, so I'm learning to be ambidextrous.  My stitching is far from straight, but from a distance you wouldn't notice.

  These were taken in the morning sun.  The coloring was washed out, so I added quite a bit of contrast to them and also added yellow as no yellow really showed up on them.  After the fix, I like the coloring of these better than the others.

Which one do you like the best?  This is a quilt my husband really likes.  He likes the hidden circles.


  1. THat turned out GORGEOUS!!!! I think I have that template, but have been concerned with curves...I really need to give it a try...

  2. I love it! But all those curves seems very scary to this novice!

    A great job - well done!

  3. Just beautiful!
    Very much worth all of the effort.
