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.

Peony Basket

Free Quilt Block Pattern

I can't see the logic in the name Peony Basket for this quilt block, but then I was not the person who chose the name. So, that being said, this is a easy quilt block to make and perfect for those quilters who like 10" blocks. The components of this block are squares, rectangles and half square triangles -- all very common units and easy to work with.

Even though this quilt block is sewn together as a nine patch, it is created on a five patch grid, and so I have included it in that category as well.

The two sample quilts illustrated show that even though this block might not have a 'masculine' name, by selecting darker colours, the man in your life will love this quilt.
