One of the most popular ways for quilters to add their own personal touches to their projects are with applique quilt patterns, and the same can be said for quilt blocks. One of the great things about these free quilt block patterns is that they can be used for an entire quilting pattern, but are also just as attention-grabbing on their own. Patterns for Quilting: 8 Free Quilt Block Patterns to Make a Quilt for Your Home provides you with the basics you'll need to make a series of applique quilt designs
The techniques included in this eBook are ones like the creation and attachment of fabric yo-yos as fabric flowers, as seen in the "Pretty Popping Posies Quilt Block" (pg. 5). Oftentimes, you'll find you won't even need to buy new fabric, as many of these patterns for quilting involve reusing old fabric scraps. If you have any plain, leftover blocks from your latest pattern, an applique quilting pattern may be just what you need to get started with something simple.
Quilters who are involved in other types of crafting will be excited to see how these free quilt block patterns incorporate other materials as well. You'll fall in love with charming patterns like the "Quaint Cottage Quilt Block" (pg. 8) that show you how to apply applique in more subtle manners. Applique quilt designs certainly aren't all meant for the same skill levels, so set a goal for yourself and see what you can accomplish with these little additions to your quilt blocks.
We know that not all quilters have learned to work with applique, and some just prefer patterns for quilting that involve piecework. That's why we've made sure that Patterns for Quilting: 8 Free Quilt Block Patterns to Make a Quilt for Your Home includes some easy quilt block patterns that you can put together in an evening.
This section includes many popular quilting techniques such as the nine patch quilt block pattern used to make the reader favorite, the Brady Bunch Inspired Nine Patch Block (pg. 28). Experiment with color schemes and intricate shapes within your quilt blocks to design patterns for quilting that can be used for seasonal quilts, baby quilts, and much more. You'll find yourself doing much more than simply piecing together squares in many of these projects, which will invite quilters looking for a challenge to try these free quilt block patterns.
Download our latest eBook whenever you have some spare time to find ideas that you can put on your list of quilting to-do's for the future. Just within this collection, you'll find not only the nine patch quilt block pattern mentioned above, but also a cathedral window quilt block, a Dresden plate pattern, and more!
Patterns for Quilting: 8 Free Quilt Block Patterns to Make a Quilt for Your Home wouldn't be complete without some resourceful and original scrappy quilt blocks. Not only are they the best way to save money while working on a quilt, but they're also some of the best ways for more artistic crafters to play with the visuals of their quilt.
Have you ever tried a log cabin quilt block pattern? If not, you're in for a real treat, because we've included the "Easy Log Cabin Quilt Block" (pg. 21) within our series of free quilt block patterns. Log cabin quilts have been a quilting sensation for a long time as they incorporate scraps in a very eye-catching way that appeals to many quilters. You can be as traditional or as quirky as you like simply with the fabrics you choose.
Extending on the idea of scrap quilting are these strip quilt piecing blocks. You can clean out an entire drawer of fabric in no time by putting your strips of all sizes to much better use within a new quilt block.
One of our favorite examples of strip quilting is the "Sands of Time Quilt Block", which replicates the timeless look of the hourglass quilt block pattern without a single half square triangle in sight. You'll come to appreciate how well these patterns for quilting can disguise so much within one quilt block.
It's never too late to start getting bold with your quilt patterns, and strip quilting can be a simple and cost-effective introduction to this.
