## Transformations in Quilting

Sample Quilts

### How Quilts are Made

There are a variety of methods for making a quilt, however one of the most commonly used is by attaching quilt blocks.

Each of these squares represents a copy of a single quilt block. The quilt block is duplicated four times and arranged in this way to create a quilt design. The blocks may be placed using slides, flips, or turns. Each transformation makes an interesting design when repeated.

### “Patience Corners”

This is a single quilt block made of four squares. Look at the four separate squares that are used to create this block. How are flips and slides used to create this block?

### “Dutchman’s Puzzle”

This is also a single quilt block made of four squares. Look at the four separate squares that are used to create this block. How are turns used to create this block?

### “Pinwheel Askew”

How are turns used to create this block?

Can you see the four separate quarters of the quilt block?

### Complicated Patterns

• Quilters use a lot of geometry in their designs.

• Each quilt block can be divided into four sections that use transformations to create a unique quilt block as you have just seen.

• If the quilt block itself does not use transformations, the quilter could use transformations as he/she places them on the final quilt using the four block method.

## How well can you identify flips, turns, and slides in quilting blocks?
