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.

Garden Square

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Garden Square quilt block might look familiar to you. It is similar to one of the most popular patterns on this website -- but goes a little bit further. Can you spot the difference between Garden Square and Folded Corners?

Once again, I went with a monochrome colour scheme for the simple reason that I wanted to keep the optical illusion of the corners folding down (hence the name of the other block), but this new nine patch block has the added feature of a square in a square patch for its centre. And ... as an added bonus, I created the block and two quilts in a different colour scheme as well -- to go more with the "theme" of this block name.

The four different sample quilts give you lots of inspiration to design your own special quilt with this easy quilt block.
