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.

Jawhawks

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Jawhawks quilt block is a new one to me ... well at least the name. The patches used in this block are easy to create and therefore this block is a good choice for a beginner quilter.

The nine patch block uses the half square triangle patch for each corner. Flying geese patches are also featured, and if you are a steady reader of this website, you will know that flying geese are my favourite patches. (I have no idea why that is, but I just like to work with them.)

The sample quilts illustrated appear to be similar, but one quilt has the blocks set side by side with sashing strips in between and the second quilt features blocks set on point. Any way you choose to lay out the blocks in your quilt will produce a pleasing and unique end product. That is what makes quilting such a fun and creative activity -- rarely do two quilts using the same blocks look the same!
