Tuesday Quilt Block Jan. 22

The next block in my countdown:

 
One of the "elevenses" - really challenging blocks that seem to be in the 11th column, that I left to near the end.  This is Wagon Wheel, E-11.  I followed Anina's method for this block, which avoids the applique of those tiny melons.  Otherwise I don't know what I would have done.  As it was, I had to turn under the seam allowance on the inside edge of those melons, and my fingers felt very clumsy.  Needle turn was a struggle also.
 
I have been to Bennington and studied the Mother quilt but I do not recall looking closely at this block.  I would like to know if Jane appliqued all those tiny melons, or did a layered technique like Anina!
 
Another thought: will more quilts in the style of Jane Stickle get finished, now that Anina has published hints on all the blocks, triangles, and corners?  Hmm.
 
I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and with Quilt Story, as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have of pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects.

I am on Facebook too: just search for Viridian61. I post only when I have put up a blog post, and very little else.
