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.

The Wedding Ring quilt block is a five patch block, because it is created on a 5 x 5 grid. It is made only with squares and half square triangles so it is a easy block to assemble.
Speaking of assembly, many quilters choose to sew this block together as five separate rows. I prefer to assemble the block as an uneven nine patch as I find it easier to work with larger grouping of patches rather than rows. However, neither is correct -- it is simply a preference.
The sample quilt illustrated give you two different looks, simply by choosing to set the blocks side by side or on point. The resultant quilt focuses on a different aspect than the other setting choice.
