Okay. Here are several photos. First is the row layout from Quilters' Cache. This is for a Carpenter's Wheel block. I enlarged it for easier viewing.

Here is my first block with the some of the fabric I'm using in the quilt:

And here are more strip sets laid out and marked for the next block:

I've already sewn those together but they're not yet cut apart.

Several comments:
The completed block you see above was made with the seams all being pressed open. What a chore!!! And I'm not happy with the way my points have lined up (or not) at all, so the other 3 will be made the way I usually do with the seams pressed toward one side or the other. I'll try to alternate the way I press them row by row. It took me a lot longer pressing the seams open to get the pressing done.

Despite the sort of Christmasy look to the block, I think the grey fabric I'm using for sashing will help tone that down. Still trying to decide what to use for backing fabric.

So the 2nd block won't be made for a while. I'll keep you posted.
