Vanna ... spin me a letter.

Wheel of Fortune quilt block
The Wheel of Fortune is a nine patch quilt block, and is an easy one to construct. It uses one of my favourite patches -- the three-quarter square triangle. This patch is not used as frequently as many others, but I like it because it gives the quilter a chance to utilize both the common half square triangle and the quarter square triangle patches. See if you can pick out which triangle is which.

I guess you realize that I just couldn't resist these quotes due to the title of this quilt block.

From those famous "Wheel of Fortune" word wizards
