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.
Salt Water Taffy
Free Quilt Block Pattern
I used the obvious colour scheme to create this Salt Water Taffy quilt block -- that colour scheme being what I would see on the seashore. This five patch block is an easy one to get you started on your quiltmaking journey.
This block is constructed as an uneven nine patch as I find that the simplest construction method for most five patch blocks, despite the name.
The sample quilts illustrated are both laid out with blocks set on point, but they differ slightly as one has sashing strips to separate the blocks with setting triangles along the outside edge -- for a place to feature your quilting skills. The second quilt is made using blocks and partial blocks to complete the whole space. Enjoy!
