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.
Star on Star
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Star on Star quilt block is a wonderful (and easy) block to introduce the three-quarter square triangle patch. There are three triangles that make up the square in this quilt patch, but the name is a little misleading (at least to me) in that it seems to suggest that these triangles are all actually quarter square triangles, when in fact it is comprised of only 2 quarter square triangles as well as a half square triangle.
Now all that being said, this really is a simple block to construct, even though it sounds complicated from my description. This block would be a great teaching tool for a beginner class.
The sample quilts illustrated give you some ideas on how to set the finished quilt blocks, but I am sure you can come up with several interesting layouts of your own.
