NY Wheel 6 inch
Print on fabric for better results than with NY Wheel templates or paper piecing.
The Sunflower Quilt Design Book is free with this shape collection.
NY Wheel 6 inch is a spectacular variation of the Sunflower quilt block. It combines impressive small shapes with larger shapes which allow you to feature special fabrics, especially if you fussy cut.
This shape collection includes all of the shapes for 6 inch NY Wheel block plus two bonus shapes for more variations.
These shapes are used for the 2013 Inklingo Mystery, The Case of the Secret Garden (COTSG). All of the clues are available on the blog and take you all the way from choosing the fabrics, to printing, cutting and sewing. It is a great project and all of the clues are free. Follow the step-by-step instructions for perfect results!
With Inklingo, you can sew these shapes by hand or by machine or with a combination of both (hybrid) to get the best of both worlds.
