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.

Red Cross

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Well the name made it obvious what colour I just had to include for the cross -- and naturally it is red.

This simple five patch quilt block is comprised of squares, rectangles and half square triangles, so if a perfect choice for a beginner quilter.

The fun begins as you play around with layouts for your quilt. As shown in the two sample quilts illustrated, you can create a very different look just by placement of the block and whether the blocks are set side by side, or on point. Now it is over to you.
