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.

Pinwheel Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

I don't know if Pinwheel Star is the correct name for this quilt block. I just came up with it while playing around with the colours in another block. Right away, I noticed the "pinwheel" in the centre of the block as well as the "star" that forms around it -- hence the name I gave it. This is an easy block to construct because it contains only basic shapes -- the square, half square triangles and flying geese units.

If you happen to know if there is an actual name already for this block, please let me know.

By laying the quilt blocks out on point or side-by-side, you can achieve two totally different looks for your quilt. You might also try grouping four quilt blocks together as one, and then play around with those new, larger quilt blocks for a variety of looks as well.
