Have you ever wondered what are some of our go-to quilt blocks?
Well, here at AGF HQ we like every single quilt block but, as everyone else we have our favorite ones! I made a little graphic to show you which ones are our favorite ones and I will show you some pictures of quilt's we have made in the past with some of these quilt blocks!
The reason why we love these 10 quilt blocks is because you can arrange them differently and they will always look good. Another good thing is that some of them are easy to make for beginners! Depending on the fabric you use, you can give your quilts that "traditional" or "modern" touch. Also, these quilt blocks are very popular because they have been around since day one.
What I found very interesting about the quilt blocks is that when I first started working in this industry I didn’t imagine quilts involved math in the making process. For me it just looked like something super complicated and almost impossible to make. Then, I realized how something so complicated can be simple! ( Wait, I’m not saying quilting is easy) but at first it just looked impossible to me. Oh! And in case you didn’t know, the names given to the quilt blocks are deeply rooted in the history of America. For example: religion, historical events, environment, everyday objects and the influences upon quilter lives.
Now, let me show you quilts we have made with some of these blocks!
