Spiked Wheel

Whew! This was my first time working with pentagons.  Sheryl requested we make a Spiked Wheel for her this month in my Travelling Circles Bee.  I was nervous but this block was actually pretty fun.  She provided us with a tutorial, precut pentagon templates and precut squares which were quite helpful! The challenge for me was what to do after I had sewn the pentagons together and how to get the big circle lined up. She had a great little trick (folding) to make this so easy.  We selected the middle from our stash with an explanation to her why we decided on the fabric we did.  This is in the mail on the way home to Australia.  Hope you like it Sheryl!
