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.

I took a liberty with this Brave World quilt block by adding in a fourth colour. Most renditions I have seen of this easy quilt block show only three colours. I like to be different -- and I also love colour.
So, I mentioned "easy". This four patch quilt block is comprised entirely of squares and the most common quilt patch -- the half square triangle -- in a couple of different sizes. This is a great starter block for beginner quilters and can be made as a large or a small block, to suit your needs.
The sample quilts illustrated show two totally different looks. Note that in the "straight set" quilt layout, a third pinwheel appears because of the extra colour used.
