As the holiday season is upon us, perhaps you’ve got some favorite Christmas-theme fabrics in your scrap basket that you would enjoy playing with, or maybe you have been inspired by one of the beautiful new collections at your local quilt shop.
For my version of this Mill Wheel quilt, I began with a festive 5″ charm pack of up-to-date Christmas colors, cutting 2 of the small corner patches from each charm. Some of my charm fabrics had a white background, but I didn’t want to leave them out, so I substituted them for a few of the alternate white solid small corner patches. From there, I used an assortment of coordinating prints with strong background colors for the central block patches.
The lap quilt pattern finishes at 64½″ x 72½″. Click here for the link to download the FREE Mill Wheel lap quilt pattern.
What kind of scraps might you choose for this project? What color might you use in place of the white?
I hope you’ll have some fun with this design…I know I did!
