I'm learning new things! I found flickr and pictobrowser. Flickr is a photo sharing website. Pictobrowser works with flickr to make cool slide shows like the one below.
What I'm showing below are the steps that go into making a "wheel" off-the-block. This particular wheel is going into a smaller version of the Lorna's Vine quilt that is in our book Amish-Inspired Quilts. This is a big wheel - the block it goes on has a finished size of 6" x 6".
You will find smaller wheels in the center of the Aunt Millie's Garden blocks. The construction technique is the same for the smaller wheels.
I wrote notes to go with each image, explaining what I'm doing in each step. Run your cursor over "Notes" on the bottom right side of the slideshow and they should show up. The window cuts off a little bit of each image, but you can grab the image with your cursor and move it around. Next time I'll make the slideshow narrower which should eliminate this cropping problem.
I have posted this slideshow on our website with each of the books mentioned above.
