Quilt Along With Us! Free Pattern for Block 15!

by Beth Cooper

Oh, you guys! This block!! (Insert screams of excitement!) It is such a fun block and looks so complicated but it is super easy! That sounds like a dream, right?? This block is called Waterwheel and is block number 15 in our Sampler Quilt Along. This is just one of the twenty 12 inch quilt block patterns that make up this sampler. Added bonus: they are all free quilt block patterns!

Even if you’re not participating in the Quilt Along, this is a great free printable quilt block pattern. You can print or download these easy quilt blocks that look difficult (but really aren’t!). This block would work great repeated in its very own quilt. Instead of making one block, just make 12 or more, depending on what size quilt you want to make.

You can print or download or download Waterwheel here!

Remember, you can jump into our Sampler Quilt Along at any time! These are easy quilt blocks for beginners. We release one block per week and you can work at your own pace. You can find all the information on the Quilt Along here, as well as links to all of the past blocks.

These Stonehenge Gradations Fat Quarter Bundles would make a stunning Sampler – or any other quilt for that matter! They come in so many different colors! Find the bundle here or shop the entire selection here.

As with all of the blocks, you can choose to make them scrappy or use the same color scheme throughout. A fat quarter bundle works well with this quilt. To shop fat quarter bundles, click here.

Also, don’t forget to square up each block as you go. This ensures all of your blocks will line up when you are ready to sew them all together! You can find the Missouri Star 12 1/2″ ruler below. It is perfect for squaring up those blocks! (Click here to shop for it on Missouri Star!) Not sure how to square up blocks? No worries! There’s a tutorial for that! Click here to watch Natalie from Missouri Star show you how to square up each block (or watch below!).
