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.

The March Basket quilt block makes good use of the half square triangle patches. This 10" quilt block can be used in a variety of ways in your quilt, simply by rotating the blocks in different directions.
The construction of the block is a little different than the "norm" as you create several different rows and then, at times add a single triangle to the grouping. Nothing difficult, just a bit different.
In the sample quilts illustrated, I have chosen four blocks at a time and laid them out in several different variations of 90 degrees. As you can see, secondary patterns emerge as a result of these rotations. The only limiting factor in coming up with your own unique quilt is your imagination.
