Easy Scrap Quilt Block Pattern

Not So Much of a Trick Easy Quilt Block Pattern

© Janet Wickell


This easy quilt block pattern uses just two different types of quick-pieced units. To make a block like this, try to keep the lights, mediums and darks arranged as shown, but be as scrappy as you want to be when assembling the individual units.

The instructions make one 12-inch finished quilt block that's sewn from pieces small enough to find in your scrap basket.

Suitable for quilters of all skill levels, beginning to experienced.
