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.
Cain and Abel
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Cain and Abel quilt block is a five patch block as it is built on a 5 X 5 square. However, it is sewn together as an uneven nine patch as the construction is easier.
This quilt block is easy to make, containing only squares and half square triangles. I have included instructions for making four different sizes of this quilt block.
The sample quilts illustrated show how different two quilts with all the same blocks can be when you create your heirloom.
