This was not my best result to date! Since I've worked with whipped wheel stitch before, I thought I'd get tricky and turn it into a clam shell. That would have been fine, but you can see that in my first row, where the two parts come together, I wound the thread the wrong way. I didn't figure that out until I had finished the entire thing, so I decided to leave it as an object lesson: pay attention to the basics!
Depending upon how full my Take a Stitch Tuesday quilt becomes as this challenge continues, I may very well go back and add a few more clam shells. And this time I will do them properly!
