Quilters of every level of ability from beginner to experienced will find a block or two that appeals to them.

Quilt blocks are the building blocks for traditional quilts and some modern quilts.

Scrapish.com provides you with a wide variety of blocks to choose from.

Whether you like simple blocks made from squares and rectangles or a little more challenging block made from triangles you will find several options to try.

Each block is done in an exciting rainbow of color - red, purple, green, orange, turquoise, pink, yellow.

Neutrals - black, white, brown, gray, cream - are included as well.

You'll see a wide variety of fabrics that have motifs suitable for babies, children, adults and holidays such as Halloween and Christmas.

I love the fabric! Some of my favorite designs include skulls, folklorio, 30s prints, black and white fabric, floral motifs, stripes, dots, tone on tone prints and animal print (skins) fabric.

Easy Quilt Blocks

With quilting, what I love more than fabric are easy, big blocks! (Can I get a hallelujah!)

A lot of the blocks here will have units made from squares and rectangles.

For variety, interest and challenge you will find some blocks made from triangles, hexagons and circles.

On scrapish.com you will find instructions to make blocks that range in sizes from 6 inches to 18 inches.

Needless to say, when I actually make a quilt pattern using the block it will use the larger size blocks. :-0
