Free Quilt Block Patterns
Have you been putting together simple quilts with precuts and feel ready to move on to the next level of quilting? If so, I have gathered 27 adorable free quilt block patterns and tutorials that are so cute you won’t be able to stop yourself from picking one out and heading straight to your scrap bin to choose fabrics and get started!
A quilt block is a smaller block of fabric that is made in a variety of patterns. A block can be as basic as a single piece of fabric cut into a square or a block that has been pieced together with several fabrics into a design. You can then combine the blocks to make a large quilt or finish the block with a pretty border to make a smaller wall hanging. (I love the idea of using one quilt block pattern, sewing it three times in different colorways, and framing it as art for a craft room wall.)
I’m having difficulty choosing a favorite quilt block from this list. It’s really a toss-up between the cat block, the popsicle block, the scrappy heart block, or maybe the Butterfly block with the buttons. (The butterfly block would be extremely cute as a set of 3 wall hangings in a little girl’s room!

Hot Chocolate Block (there are a couple of different blocks available)
A fun 16″ x 26″ block that can be made into a pillow or used in a quilt.
It took me quite a while to compose this list of free quilt block tutorials. One thing I found in my research was that two quilt block books are available for purchase with the most adorable quilt block tutorials imaginable. I did a lot of searching around on Pinterest and Google for these free quilt blocks, and I kept running into blocks made from the patterns from these books (people were sharing their creations, and I began to recognize the patterns, lol!)
If you don’t mind paying for patterns, they are worth a look and make the best gifts! These 2 had some of the best quilt block patterns: The Patchsmith’s Sampler Blocks: 50 Fun Quilt Blocks to Patch and Applique and Farm Girl Vintage Book.
Let me know if you end up making any of these quilt blocks!
