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.
Toad in the Puddle
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Toad in the Puddle is certainly a quaint name for a quilt block. It kind of makes you wonder where these names come from doesn't it?
This quilt block is a simple four patch made using only flying geese units and half square triangles. Colour placement can totally change this block. In this example, I have chosen to make this a very "scrappy" version, but you could easily control the colour placement.
The sample quilts shown use standard settings for the blocks -- one setting of the quilt blocks is straight across and the second is on point.
