Quilt Block Patterns

There are a wide variety of quilt block patterns available and, despite the fact that in principle they’re crafted in much the same way, it’s the size, shape, style and color that makes each type distinct. As a craft quilting has gained popularity in recent years, and many of the more able quilters tend to diversify between the different types. Being so many it can be rather difficult to choose the one that’s best suited to your quilting abilities but, here at QNNtv.com, we cater for all levels and we’re sure that no matter where you are on the scale, we’ll have the perfect video collection to suit your current talents.

Block Quilt

A block quilt is simply a quilt that’s made up of different types of fabric blocks, and despite the fact that there is a lot of work involved, the end results are both beautiful and immensely satisfying. Completing a piece that’s involved hours and hours of sewing and crafting may not be everyone’s idea of fun but – to those that are both new and well versed in quilt making, the completion of each one brings its own reward.

Happily, we have a selection of videos that will more than introduce you to patchwork block patterns and how to create them. One of our resident experts, Mary Fons, delivers a great video that completely breaks down how to make a basic block pattern from scratch. As QNNtv.com is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, you can access any of our videos at your own leisure. You can easily subscribe to our substantial video collection by clicking [insert html].

By following our instructional videos, you’ll be amazed at how much you will learn, the little tips and tricks employed by professional quilters, seemingly complicated quilt designs broken down into an easy to understand language, and so much more. We all had to start somewhere and the visual guide that comes with following a video series is almost as good as attending a local course. We’re extremely confident that our practical videos will more than get you started on the road to block quilting patterns and beyond.

Block Quilt Pattern

To make the block quilt pattern easier, we’ve broken down a wide variety of designs as a means of demonstrating what some of the more common ones are, and how to put them together. Once you’ve gained a suitable understanding of the different patterns, you can then decide on how simple or elaborate you want to go with your quilt.

As an example, of the more commonly used block patterns, there are the:

  • log cabin quilt block
  • pineapple quilt block
  • nine patch block
  • star quilt block pattern
  • chain block pattern

The above are just some of the designs covered in our videos series, and in and among our extensive collection there are plenty of ideas available, as well as lots of different block patterns to choose from. The log cabin block is a highly popular choice, and a really good choice for the beginner. You need three different fabrics, and the design is made up of one central square surrounded by rectangular pieces that interlock to create a ‘log wall’ effect. It’s an effective quilt block and far easier to create than it looks.

The pineapple block is a little more complicated, as it involves more piece work in order to achieve the desired result. However, once the basics of the design are understood, you’ll find it surprisingly easy to create. The pineapple gives a very distinct effect, sharp lines and a striking geometric appearance. Repeated across a quilt front, in an array of contrasting or complimentary colors/patterns, this is a quilting block that looks wonderfully creative and unique. As always QNNtv.com have a great video titled Easy Pineapple Blocks, that will help you to master the technique and teach you how to create seemingly complex quilts that feature the pineapple block pattern. Here it is:

The nine patch is a wonderfully simple quilt block that’s favored in Amish quilting. It’s an arrangement of nine pieces of fabric and it’s incredibly easy to master. Of course it’s not only found in Amish quilts, it can and does look great in an array of different types of quilts, plus the nine patch is another way of using up fabric scraps. It’s amazing what you can create using left over fabrics and we have an array of videos that show you how to create and use the nine patch design in a variety of different designs. Again we have a selection of videos that more than cover the basics and beyond, including popular guides such as Quilt In A Day – Nine Patch Party or Fons And Porter – Blue Streak Quilt, which is just below:

The star quilt block can be done simply or, for the more venturesome, as a far more complex design.

One easy method is to start with a simple nine patch block, and attach ‘points’ of fabric that create the star pattern. This creates an impressive design that looks more complicated than it really is. If you’re feeling really adventurous, our Blocks-A-Go-Go: Twinkling Startwo-part series is a great place to start. Mary Fons takes you through the process, detailing every step, and by the time you’ve reach the final stage, you’ll have developed a whole new level of understanding (and expertise!) when it comes to crafting a star quilt block pattern.


Finally, the chain block, which has previously featured as one of our block of the month quilt patterns, and has an accompanying video Glory Be! Block Of The Month. The chain design can be featured as a standalone pattern, or combined with others (such as the star block) to create an aesthetically pleasing quilting block that has a very traditional feel to it. As always, QNNtv.com have a great selection of videos available, some designed to be standalone, others created as a ‘start to finish’ series. One of the more popular chain block quilt pattern videos is the How to Make a Pretty Chain Block, and again we have Marianne Fons demonstrating just how much fun (and easy!) this pretty block quilt pattern really is.


As an incentive, remember that once you’ve subscribed to our extensive video collection, you’ll open yourself up to a whole world of wonderful advice and guidance from many of the most respected leading experts in the quilting industry. Marianne Fons, Amish trained quilter Ami Simms, the bubbly and instructional Eleanor Burns and many many more.
