Wagon wheel……

it’s an easy block and one I really enjoy doing.
The fabrics I used give this one a bit of “motion” which was what I was looking for.  It’s an old block and it was used in the Underground Railroad quilts.

  You can click on this link and you’ll see the meaning behind the quilt.  Very simply……wagons were places people could hide in when escaping to freedom.
It’s an easy block to make up and the technique which I’ve repeated again can be done for any size circle.

I have to share this with you.  Elaine just sent over a photo of the pillowcases she has made for High River Alberta.  Thank you so much Elaine.  Boy, this just warms the cockles of my heart!
