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 Mother's Own quilt block is a perfect choice for a quilt to celebrate Mother's Day. It is an easy five patch block constructed using only squares and rectangles.
"Ah ha!" you say. There are triangles used to make the star in the centre. Well ... yes ... but they are sewn using the "flip and sew" method which is so popular with quilters. No triangles are used. What could be easier?
The block is sewn as an uneven nine patch, rather than in five rows of five -- (just an easier method, in my view).
The two sample quilts illustrated introduce an additional fabric for the sashing between the blocks. This is not necessary, but I thought it added a little extra pizzazz to the sample quilts.
