They’re both made and delivered.
The kids loved them and I think their mom loved them more. I believe I convinced her to let the kids use them, wash them and dry them and keep on using them! I believe I’m going to make a few more of these and have them on hand to give when a gift quilt is needed. They’re so quick to make.
love them both they are verrrry pretty. I have a 2nd carpenter star finished and quilted just need to add the border. They make such a nice quilt

Judy, these quilts are beautiful. The colors are great. I have always wanted to make a carpenter star and have never “gotten around” to it. I think I need to put this on my “to do list” for the very near future. I love yours!
Kari in UT says
They both look wonderful, I’m sure they will be loved for years and years to come!
they both turned out really well – I to have had to stress at times to use the quilts not just look at them!

Now that is a plan Judy L – we could start a Carpenter Star summer sewing challenge – I am definitely gonna make this. Judy C in NC
Is the pattern someplace? I sort of recall it mentioned before but memory just failed me. (not the first time!!!)
Cindy Kuipers says
These are wonderful! Love the colors for both of them. I am sure the kids were very happy to get them.
Ava Crotinger says
Absolutely beautiful. I’m sure the mom was especially excited. What a lovely gift. I’m going to have to learn how to quilt instead of just oooh and aahhh at what I see around here.

I think it is a good idea to make these and have on hand for gifts….very nice! How do you think it would look made from scrappy fabrics in the same color way? I guess I could try it and find out!

The pattern is at Mary’s blog from Heartstrings.
They both look lovely – nice colours 🙂
Love this pattern, aka Carpenter’s Wheel, I think. I’m a little confused about the size, though – could you clarify dimensions? The stash busting fabric for the back has me puzzled. Thanks much! I, too, would love to make it for a child’s or baby’s gift.

They turned out great!
