PATTERN : Colour Wheel Quilt Pattern


This Colour Wheel Quilt uses a Dresden Plate which is a classic design used in both EPP and quilting. Simple but fun, this giant, contemporary version of the well-known block uses a large selection of fabrics to form a bright colour wheel. This quilt would look lovely on a bed, sofa, or even displayed on a wall as a piece of art. Perfect for childrenโ€™s bedrooms, too!

We have suggested a layout for the quilt, with colours running through the spectrum in a rainbow order however you may arrange the colours in any way that you wish.You may even wish to deviate from the classic rainbow.We hope you enjoy being creative!
Construction of this quilt is very simple and would be a great project for a beginner quilter.
