Chinese Puzzle

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Chinese Puzzle quilt block is not too exciting at first glance. But by using 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks and/or flipping other blocks, you can create a stunning variety of quilts -- often with an optical illusion. Both quilts shown below use rotations of the blocks while the quilt on the right also uses flips of the colours to create mirror images. Lots of fun can be had when using this quilt block.
