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.

Rolling Wheel

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Rolling Wheel quilt block is a great teaching aid to introduce the three quarter square triangle patch. This unit is a bit of a misnomer because yes, there are three triangles in the patch, but not all of the triangles are quarter square triangles. However, this patch is a useful one in order to make a pinwheel type of quilt block. Have fun with this design and watch secondary designs emerge as you lay out this block in a variety of ways.

The sample quilts show two different results by setting the blocks "on point" rather than straight across. By changing up the setting triangles, you get a totally different look.
