Shape Quilt Patterns
Quilting is all about shapes. Free octagon, hexagon and various star quilt block patterns are great to make a traditional quilt or adapted to create a contemporary look. Diamonds, hearts and pinwheel quilt motifs are fun accent pieces when stitched with colorful fabrics to blend with the room's décor.
Use a combination of quilt block shapes to create a sampler quilt of many patterns to show off your skill. Surround similar sized blocks with sashing and matching binding to tie it all together for an heirloom piece your family will enjoy for generations.
Most quilt blocks use simple square, rectangle and triangle pieces, so stitching up the blocks is fast and easy. The fun comes in selecting colors and designs that change your simple shapes into a beautiful overall pattern.
