Quilt blocks and easy quilt patterns for beginners and others who love simple, traditional or modern blocks. Start quilting today!
Quilting is so much fun! Wouldn't you agree? It is also addictive. It can be an expensive hobby. But, then, aren't they all?! :-)
Quilting has a rich history filled with tall tales and true stories.
Many of us have a relative or two who may have quilted. My great aunt Fannie did.
I watched her turn scraps of fabric leftover from making clothes into beautiful bed quilts.
We'll discover lots of blocks to use in making simple, exciting, fun quilts! :-)
Blocks are the basis of most quilts, especially traditional ones. Modern quilts may use blocks or not.
Here, you'll find easy quilt block patterns for simple and easy to replicate quilt patterns...
And though I am not aiming to include all blocks (there are sooooo many :-o) on the site, I will share enough to offer you a wide variety for your quilty creations.
You will find blocks pieced in real fabric...always a nice treat!
Scrapish (I made up the word) describes my style of making quilts. Call it scrappy if you like :-).
I like to quilt with big blocks and use many different fabrics in one quilt.
My fabric choices are usually from different lines of fabrics and fabric designers. Lots of shades of one color or many different colors.
The fabric may be a true scrap or it may be yardage.
I usually take traditional blocks and use improvisational, or free-form, quilting techniques to cut them up and/or piece them together.
My hope is that this results in a quilt top that is a cohesively cobbled masterpiece :-).
