I have figured out that I need to make 40 units to go all the way around this Little Wheels quilt.
Each of these units look like this;
But the problem with sewing diagonal units is that when it comes time to turn the corner the diagonal sewing doesn’t work.
To rectify this little problem I have to make 4 units with one of the triangles sewn to an adjacent side. This creates a triangle unit like so…Which then fill in that little space…
And then when the border is attached to the main body of the quilt will get mitered at the corners…
I am working on arranging these corner blocks so that I’m mixing up the colors so no two colors stand next to each other. It’s not difficult but I am having to stop and think about it.
The next step is figuring out how wide of an inner border to make!
