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.
Roll of the Dice
Free Quilt Block Pattern
This Roll of the Dice is a nice choice for a beginner quilter. It is easy to construct and introduces two common quilt patches -- the half square triangle and the square in a square patch.
Although this block is technically a four patch (so named as it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid), with the changes I made to the pattern, it is now constructed as an uneven nine patch.
The two sample quilts illustrated show different settings for the block -- an on point setting as well as a side by side layout with sashing. The sashing uses two different fabrics in order to give a "stair step" effect. (It is subtle but gives just a little more interest to the block.)
