Ferris Wheel! The Fun Way to Make Fans!

Here it is: the Ferris Wheel Quilt! If you don't want to bother with paper piecing or fabric foundations, this quilt pattern is for you! These fans are pieced "by-eye." Once you get the hang of it you'll find uses for these clever blocks in lots of quilts. (For example, going around the corners in borders.)

I like how it looks like a wheel when you use striped fabrics.

Here's another variation below. The "by-eye" aspect is more evident in this red and pink variation.

The whole quilt measures 65" x 81. This quilt is really fun to make, and really packs a punch.

Please spread this quilt around the Internet: Pinerest, your blog, flickr, or FB. Use any of the photos. Thanks so much!

I do believe this is one of my favorite designs of yours. It is so happy and easy that I am starting one today! Hope I can dig up some cool stripes for it...
