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.

Rat Pack

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Rat Pack quilt block looked familiar to me and then I realized it seems like a less complicated version of a block called Birds in the Air. Both blocks are four patches, but the Rat Pack block would be a better choice if you are just learning how to make a quilt. It contains only squares and half square triangles, but you have to also play with the individual triangle pieces in places. An interesting challenge.

Don't let a simple block fool you into thinking your quilt will be boring. As you can see from the sample quilts illustrated, by playing around with rotations of the blocks, I came up with some interesting quilts as a result (if I do say so myself)! See what your creativity can come up with using this interesting block.
