cartwheels2This version of Cartwheels is made in Joel Dewberry’s new line, Bungalow. I’m usually not a big fan of autumnal color palettes, but this line takes fall colors in a direction that I love—they feel like autumn, but they’re still bright and fresh.

And if you’re looking for a fabric line with lots of stripes, this is the line for you. I used all those stripes to my advantage by creating radiating lines in the Cartwheels blocks.

Another Cartwheels quiltI always love seeing my patterns with completely different color choices than the first time around. In case you missed it, the original Cartwheels was a baby quilt in gray, pink, and yellow, with the color placement in a careful pattern. So this version looks like a whole different animal! I think the randomly-placed colored blocks work just as well as the more structured placement of the original.
