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.

Flying Diamond

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Flying Diamond quilt block is kind of a "double nine patch" as the centre is made of a small nine patch block and then it is extended into a larger nine patch block by adding half square triangles in the four corners and flying geese patches as well, in the outer rows.

This simple quilt block would be a good choice for teachers to introduce all of these patches as mentioned above.

The two sample quilts illustrated are both created with on point settings and as you can see they are very different. Your imagination is all that limits you for creating your own special heirloom.
