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.

Chisholm Trail Variation

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This four patch quilt block is a slight variation of the Chisholm Trail quilt block. By a simple different arrangement of the light, dark and medium values of the fabrics it appears to be a totally different block. The block features simple patchwork, using only squares and half square triangles.

The sample quilt layouts show two very different quilts. One quilt uses a side by side block setting, while the second quilt sets the quilt blocks on point. Both quilts use sashing to separate the blocks, with very different results.
