Pressing directions, too!

Keep it simple


You SHOULDN'T HAVE TO buy a specialty ruler or tool to make a single block. 

Craftsy Black Friday / Cyber Monday - All Classes $15 or Less at Craftsy.com starting 11/21 at 2:00pm MST through 11/26/18.

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.

That said...

...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.


The free quilt block patterns await...


To make things as easy as possible:

  • Our free quilt block patterns are listed in alphabetical order by their most common name.
  • Seam allowances are 1/4" unless otherwise noted.
  • Blocks are listed in Finished Sizes. Most include multiple sizes.
  • Any paper piecing patterns or paper templates used in the construction of a block are available within the tutorial as a free download for you to print. 
  • Use the most recent version of Adobe for downloading and printing. To date, every printing problem we've encountered has been solved by using the free Adobe software. Click here for more printing help.
