The Chakra (Wheel) Block from my Dreamcatcher Quilt has to be my absolute favourite. For one, it is a tribute to my country, India! Secondly, it is designed by me, not based on any other quilt block that I have seen.
Why not celebrate India by making your own Chakra? The pattern is now available on my Madspatch Ecwid store! It is surprisingly easy to piece the paper-foundation paper piecing way, and assembly is also simple enough. The half-circles could be appliqued, fused or even omitted if you don’t feel up to it!
The block, a 15” square set in an 18” circle was designed as the tenth block in the Dreamcatcher Round the Year BOM quilt. However, like the other blocks of my quilt, it works great as a stand-alone small quilt! Here are some great options for you!
You could use just the centre circle as a great-looking round table runner.
Make it in the original indigo and white of our flag and bind with a green and saffron double binding to make it look special!
Substitute the colours on the pattern and make a couple for a pair of gorgeous tricolour cushion covers.
…Or you could combine with another two blocks from my store, the Lollipop Candy and Dahlia; add a 1.5” border and sashing to make a table runner 21”X 60”!
Or perhaps join four blocks two by two to make a stunning wall-hanging!
