Easy quilt blocks -- the title of this page says it all. But, do not be deceived into believing that "simple" means "boring". Simple blocks make it a fun way to make a finished project in record time. These quilt blocks are great for beginners to get addicted to the whole quilt making process. But, don't think these blocks are just for beginners. Experienced quilters enjoy using simple blocks to make spectacular quilts as well. Your end product is only as limited as your own imagination.

Black-Eyed Susan

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Black-Eyed Susan is one of my favourite flowers so I thought it was time to create the pattern for that "little bit of sunshine".

For the most part in this pattern, I have used the "sew and flip" method of making the triangles in the corners of many of the patches. But -- you don't get off easy for the whole block! You will utilize some cut triangles -- using quarter square triangles and half square triangles together to create a patch that many quilters call the three quarter square triangle patch. So, all in all, this five patch quilt block is a learning experience for novice quilters.

The two sample quilts illustrated are designed using standard quilt layouts -- a side by side setting as well as an on point setting of the blocks.

As a side note: Don't feel that you are limited to the colours of a black-eyed susan flower. This pattern could be used for any number of flowers in your garden. All you have to do is switch up the colour palette. :-)
