Today the quilt top I’m pulling from the quilt top cupboard is a Wheel of Chance. It’s also known as True Lovers’ Buggy Wheel. The design is made from 4 Grandmother’s fan blocks set in a circle arrangement, so it would also be correct to call this a Grandmother’s Fan Variation as well.
This top is machine sewn and dates to the 1930’s-40’s. The fabrics are a nice quality, almost a percale?
The blocks are around 10″ and four blocks are used to create the circle.
A Grandmother’s Fan block is often times made up of a variety of fabrics, each different in the fan. These blocks are unusual in that they have one solid and one print fabric used to create the fan shape.
This is another old top that looks to me like it could be modern?
This top looks to me like it needs something? A border, or sashing..something? What do you...
