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.

Gettysburg

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Gettysburg is another of the blocks named for famous (or not so famous) cities. (I have listed a few other blocks at the bottom of this post.)

This nine patch block features the underused (at least in my opinion) quilt patch called the square in a square, using some colour variations to make things interesting and creating the secondary pattern of a star.

The half square triangle cut pieces are sewn on the edges of square pieces to create a different patch than the usual use for half square triangles -- which is to create a square using two different triangle pieces. All in all, this block is not difficult in any way, but you get a little different sewing practice.

The sample quilts illustrated use a side by side block setting as well as an on point setting to give you ideas for creating your own special quilt.
