Blocks starting with A-D

Blocks starting with E-M

Our Free Quilt Block Patterns Library continues with blocks whose name starts with N-Z.

Fully illustrated, beginner-friendly instructions include directions for multiple sizes for each design.

Pressing directions are included, too, because they're important to how your blocks turn out.

For the beginning quilter, there are loads of pictures each step of the way and helpful tips for making more accurate blocks.

If you've been quilting awhile, the cutting instructions, technique advice and any downloads may be all you need.

I think it's about time to add them to all the originals, too!
