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.

Checkerboard Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Checkerboard Star quilt block is a simple nine patch block comprised of simple patches -- the flying geese unit and squares.

As illustrated by the sample quilt layouts, an entirely different look can be achieved by setting the blocks on point or a straight set with the blocks side by side.

This quilt block shown, was made in a monochromatic style, but would be lovely as a scrap quilt too or by choosing two different colour families.
