Easy quilt blocks -- the title of this page says it all. But, do not be deceived into believing that "simple" means "boring". Simple blocks make it a fun way to make a finished project in record time. These quilt blocks are great for beginners to get addicted to the whole quilt making process. But, don't think these blocks are just for beginners. Experienced quilters enjoy using simple blocks to make spectacular quilts as well. Your end product is only as limited as your own imagination.
Wheel of Fortune
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Wheel of Fortune quilt block is a simple nine patch that contains an interesting (and often forgotten) patch. That patch is often referred to as a three-quarter square triangle unit as it contains three triangles that fill a square. The patch uses both a half square triangle and two quarter square triangles which make up the final patch.
There is really nothing difficult in the construction of this quilt block so it is a good choice for beginner quilters. Colour choices can make a big different in the final effect, depending on whether you choose a light or dark background fabric for the block.
The sample quilts illustrated use the basic layouts chosen by quilters for hundreds of years -- the straight set of the blocks or the on point setting with extra plain blocks to feature your quilting skills.
