Awhile back I posted here asking advice about making the Colorwheel Quilt from "Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts" for my 4-year-old son. Here's the finished result... He is obsessed with knights, so I told him it is King Arthur's round table. I ended up buying a lot of fat quarters and quarter-yard cuts of fabric on sale and used the leftover to make a curtain for his closet, a pillowcase for a chair he has in the room, and I still have a ton left over. The quilt actually came together quite quickly and I only had to use my seam ripper once!

(to answer the question below re: the points meeting in the center... I used a disappearing ink pen to mark the quilting lines, starting at the edge and going all the way across the quilt. In other words, I didn't stop at the center, so that works out to 26 long lines crossing each other. I drew one line, quilted, drew another, etc. It does get bulky in the middle, and a bit wobbly but once I washed the quilt, any little wobbly lines weren't so obvious. )

This is such a lovely variation on the color wheel quilt!  Nicely done, and I love the idea of it being Arthur's table.  :-)
