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.
Handy Andy - Variation
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Handy Andy quilt block is a nice introduction to the half square triangle patch, probably the most commonly used patch in quilt blocks (after the square, of course). This block is frequently made as a 10" block because the math works out nicely. However, I have included instructions for several different sized blocks as well.
The patches are sewn together in rows of three sections, as an uneven nice patch, so named as the three rows are not all the same measurements.
The sample quilts illustrated show how you can simply turn this easy quilt block into a really stunning quilt.
