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.

Well of course I had to make the Lilac Lane quilt block in shades of lilac. That is just how predictable I am.
This quilt block uses the half square triangle pieces, but this time, it is not to make squares. You add them to existing squares to make a large triangle. This triangle is then sewn to another triangle to make one of the patches. Using four of these identical units in your four patch block is then what gives the appearance of a pinwheel.
The quilt samples illustrated give you some ideas of using your blocks in a straight set, or an on point layout, but there are many more variations you can come up with, I am sure.
