The Broken Wheel Quilt Block

The broken wheel quilt blockThe Broken Wheel Quilt Block is an easy quilt block to construct.  It makes a beautiful circular pattern.  Most quilters do not like to sew curves.  When you can get the look of curves sewing straight lines, that is a bonus.

 

  As you can see from the picture to the left, this is a 9-patch quilt block. The outer corners are made from a square in a square.  Follow the link for cutting measurements.  Most quilters oversize this block, and then cut it down. 

 

If you are making this block with 2 1/2 inch strips, cut the center square 3 1/4 inch, and the 2 squares that you are going to cut on the diagonal 3 1/2 inches.  Then trim down the square down to 4 1/2 inches.

 

Continuing with the prior measurements, the center block is a 4 1/2 inch square.  The other units are made from 2 1/2 inch strips sewn together and 4 1/2 inches in length.

 

The important part of this block is getting the value placement correct.  You must have the light colors as shown in the picture.  This block has other names, and different value placement.  However, if you want the look of the "wheel" and the look of the circular lines, you must make it as shown.

 

This is a beautiful block, and looks wonderful scrappy or with a limited color range like the green and blue tones in the pictures on this page.  If you use this block for a whole project or quilt, be sure the outer rectangles are not the same fabric  when you place the blocks together, or the design will be lost.
