In the class I took I learned how to do a 4patch and flying geese. Since then I've done a 9 patch and a shaded 4 patch. I'm working on a broken dishes lap quilt for my 12yo and its not too bad but I hate her colors! So I'm just wondering what other blocks are easy that you like. I think the more praxtice I get on easier blocks the easier the harder ones will be! I love older looking quilts too.....not contempory.

Have you worked with half square triangles yet? I have a book that my sister gave me with many blocks. Some, I feel, could be done by a beginner. Also you may want to check out Quilterscache. She has a listing in her site that shows which blocks are easier than others by putting 1,2,or 3 pins next to the name of the block.

Have to say that the disappearing nine patch is super easy.

I LOVE the Disappearing 9 Patch, it is simple, can be used with just two fabrics or 9 whatever you want to make it totally scrappy, with numerous ways of arranging it :D

My all time favorite is the log cabin. It was the first quilt block that I had made.

Churn Dash is easy. Here is the link to Quilters Cache. All kinds of free block patterns.



The first link is to Churn Dash and second link is to Quilt Blocks Galore.

Have fun looking.
