BOQ : Broken Wheel

Broken Wheel : 9 1/2  inch (unfinished) blocks, as seen in the Guild Office this week

This 9 inch block, so easily rotary cut, is the Block of the Quarter and any delivered to the office of The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc by  Tuesday 14 October , or brought to the Annual General Meeting at Burwood on Saturday 18 October, will go into "the winner takes all" draw, at the meeting. 
Dont forget to add an identifying name to each block on a scrap of paper. "No name" will mean another block will be drawn, for a member to "win".

Fabric colours need to be red prints set against a white background. 
As can be seen, once many blocks are put together, a stunning Red and White quilt is produced, and this could be the beginnings of an entry (for the winner) in the 2015 Challenge : "Red and White"
Scraps dont have to match, therefore there is bound to be plenty of variety available in everyone's stash.
Members are encouraged to make as many as wished.

The block diagram, cutting and piecing directions are in the August 2014 edition of The Template.
