wheels of fortune

I am disappointed that I only managed to post once in October.  My goal is to post once a week.  I hope I will do better in November!
I have been slowly building my pile of Wheel of Fortune blocks and today I decided it was time to lay them out and see how many more to make.   
 I have a lot of the blue background fabric.  I think I want to try a zigzag setting.  I am feeling a bit clueless as to how to measure this.  I decided I will make another dozen blocks and then figure it out measurements etc...
I have at least 12 more fabrics picked out anyway and I really enjoy making these bright, happy blocks :0) 
I'm getting close to having all 16 blocks made for my Circle Game quilt. There was one block in the pattern that my friend and I didn't like so for the last block we are making one that she drafted. This is the second last block - a pretty one I think.
I have decisions to make about this quilt too.  The pattern makes a 73 inch square quilt... not a very usable size (wide for a throw but too short to tuck in on a bed) so I am thinking about 4 more blocks to make the quilt rectangular. I'll have a picture of all my blocks laid out together later this week.

As for other sewing.  I made a Halloween costume for my 11 year old son last week.  Here are all the components.  Any guesses as to what he dressed up as??  There will be some sort of quilty prize for the closest guess  :0)

This week I am happy to be back to my regular sewing projects. 
Happy Quilting!!

Love your Wheel of Fortune blocks. And I am guessing that costume is some organic chemical compound! I sure hope you post a picture of it being worn!

That blue is nice with your wonderful Wheel of Fortune blocks! (Don't you "love" the math-figuring part of quilt making?) ;D

That blue for the background is a fantastic choice! I love it. Ok, I'm clueless on the Halloween costume. ;-)

The blue zig zag will be awesome with the wheel of fortune blocks!

Kyle said...

The blue floral looks like a great choice for the zig zag border. I like it. As far as the costume parts....no clue!

All those circle blocks are awesome, and I love the fabrics you have lined up. I have no clue what the costume might be--h's and c's and the round o's--all I can think of is a sneeze: ahhh chooooo! (lol!)

The zig zag lay out is very pretty with your wheel of fortune blocks. Hmmm-no clue on the costume but Zillow bet it was fun :)

Bright and happy blocks is a good description ; so pretty! :) I am clueless about the costume but I hope that you took a photo of him in it :)
