|Ezekiel's Wheel Quilt|
|This is my first Ezekiel's Wheel quilt|
I used the same pattern but resized it to a 6" unit for a 12" block. It appears in the Quiltmaker's 100 Best Blocks and they asked if I wanted to make a quilt using the block; I did, they changed their mind. Poor little quilt. She whimpers in the hallway, wanting to be noticed. I told her I would "publish" her here. What do you think?

|Transfer template pattern to freezer paper. Use to cut out 16 background pieces.|
|Notice how the template is flip-flopped for conservation of fabric|
|Transfer template pattern for 1/4 circle and cut 8 each of the two fabrics.|
|Here is the 1/4 circle cut from the green fabric|
|Flip-flop the template, again, to save fabric (cutting dimensions given in pdf pattern)|
|Sew 2 partial donut shapes together, ALWAYS with the green in the same position (left)|
|Same position of the green partial donut shape, but with the 8 green 1/4 circles|
|Pin as shown, matching the centers and the sides.|
|See how STRAIGHT the sides are after that first curved seam is sewn?|
|Sewing the background piece, keep those sides STRAIGHT using two pins on each side.|
|Block #1 using the blue/brown/grey 1/4 circle (Make 8)|
|Block #2 using the green/brown/blue 1/4 circle (Make 8)|
And here's the quilt in blue. The pattern also shows the brown colorway.
