In our free Quilt Block Patterns library (click to skip straight to the blocks) you'll find step-by-step illustrated directions for cutting and piecing your favorite patchwork block.
Not just images, but pictures of the actual block during construction.
And pressing directions, too, because they're important.
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.
And finally, downloadable cutting charts and coloring pages are in the works for all the tutorials on this site for your convenience. It'll take awhile to finish this project, please bear with me. It'll be worth it.
On this page you'll find:
If you need help printing any of the tutorials or free paper piecing pattern or templates used in the construction of some of the free quilt blocks, visit these pages:
Alphabetically by common name...
Or by finished block size...
Or by type...
You SHOULDN'T HAVE TO buy a specialty ruler or tool to make a single block.
That just doesn't make sense, or cents for that matter either!
Each block in this library is constructed with only the most common tools found in nearly every quilter's studio.
...if there's a great tool or ruler out there that streamlines the construction process for making many blocks AND I can recommend and vouch for it, that information will be listed, too.
If templates for unusual shapes or paper pieced patterns are needed, they are available as free downloads, printable on your home computer right from the instruction page.

If you are a guild or other quilting group member and would like to include block instructions in your guild newsletter, please review the permissions that I have granted here.
If you agree with these terms—and they're pretty simple—you are able to go ahead with your plans without even contacting me, saving you and me, both, a step.
Contact me with your request if you have any questions.
...to help you make flatter, more accurate blocks. These are the techniques I go back to time and time again for accurate piecing results.
I hope they help you, too!
