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.

Blueberry Compote

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Blueberry Compote quilt block surprised me when I started playing around with the quilt settings. Originally I had started with a three colour block but felt that the resultant quilts were kind of 'ho-hum'. Once I introduced an additional fabric (a complementary colour), it added just the spark I was looking for.

This is an easy quilt block to construct -- containing only half square triangles and squares and is constructed as an uneven nine patch, simply because of the way the sections are put together.

I hope that you start to play around with colour when trying out this block, just to see what really interesting quilt you can come up with.
