easy quilts

I was looking at my desktop of all the project links I put there a few weeks ago and clicked on this one. I think I could scale these down a row in width and height to have something to work on that is not too big and is easy enough to reinforced a few of the squares I learned in class.

Rail Fence and the one they're calling Simple Four Patch are my personal favorite quick quilt patterns. Both can be done with strip piecing which goes really fast.

The one they call Simple four patch, an alternating four patch with a single block, is particularly nice for baby and kid quilts where I want to use a big novelty print that I don't want to cut up into little pieces (or for a grownup using a big floral). It's also fun for an alphabet quilt where there's a different novelty print in the single blocks for each letter of the alphabet.

My first ever quilt (that actually got all the way finished) was a rail fence.

They do look simple, (but we know how deceptive that can be!)

I think you're right too that you can reduce it by a row width and height and it will still have the same overall effect.

Learn, have you seen this website?

There are lots of lovely blocks here, many of them very simple. A four-block wallhanging, with the blocks each 9 or 10 inches, with a 2-4 inch border is not much more difficult than any of these and as you gain confidence you might find these more interesting to do.
