One Block Wonders

These blocks can help you ease into quilting as you work on just a few skill sets with each block. They can be used for small projects (potholder, pillow top, etc.), the One Block Quilt or just as practice squares.  If you really like the pattern, you could repeat the block to make a whole quilt or use it in a sampler quilt.

We would love to add your completed blocks to our site. Submit yours here.
