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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Year's Favorite quilt block is a four patch that is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter. It contains only the two most commonly used patches -- the square and the half square triangle.

When I chose the fabrics for this block, I deviated from the "norm", in that I used the focus fabric as the background. Since my background fabric is dark, the lighter fabrics draw your eye into the pinwheels.

Two very different quilts evolve when you choose to set the blocks side by side or on point as shown in the sample quilts illustrated.
