Pattern Description:

This particular quilt block has a rich history and dates back as far as the 1930's. It was first published as a Cheyenne block, by the Kansas City Star in September of 1933, but later in the 1960's was referred to as a Rock Garden block by Quilts magazine. When I look at this block, full of a rainbow of focal colors rather than two focal colors (dark and medium) as in the original, I see a patchwork wheel and that's how I came up with the name for this block.

This easy-to-assemble block uses some simple squares and half-square triangles to create a fun patchwork block that looks even more awesome when you multiply it into many blocks!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 12.5" unfinished block


  • Various scraps of fabric
