Paper-pieced Wheel of Fortune

I made this iridescent block using Michael Miller ‘Mirror Ball Dots’ fabrics and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! The fabrics were from a half-yard bundle that my mom got for me for Christmas from Westwood Acres on Etsy.
Elizabeth’s Wheel of Fortune mini quilt
I was majorly inspired by seeing Elizabeth’s finished prism quilt on Facebook. I just love how it looked with the rainbow colored scraps, and if you alternate your background fabrics like she did, you get the cool star effect. Stunning!!
The paper-pieced quilt pattern was designed by Elizabeth Dackson, and you can find the pattern information on her blog here. The cost is $10. The pattern comes with full step-by-step instructions (so if you have never paper-pieced before, you will be able to do this!). The templates can either make a 6″ finished block or a 12″ finished block. I made the 12″ block. I think I will make 4 blocks to make a mini-quilt, although I would certainly not be disappointed to make a small quilt, as this is quite gorgeous! The block took me about 3 hours to make, but I think I was watching tv and goofing off at the same time. :-)
Just wanted to share…I’m finishing up my first bag patterns this week and setting up my on-line shop, so I don’t have much else to show on the blog but this little block. Hope you like it. :-)

  1. That fabric is way cool!!! I love the pinwheel effect and the rainbow colors. I really need to make a quilt one of these days :) How could you not be happy with a quilt like that in your house?! So bright and cheery!
