8 resources for free quilt block patterns

The other day I was looking for the dimensions for a particular quilt block pattern. This led me down a rabbit hole, but in the end, I discovered 8 resources for free quilt block patterns! What’s a good quilting buddy going to do but share them with her friends!

Check out these 8 resources for FREE quilt block patterns @ The Crafty Quilter!
  1. Generations Quilt Patterns is a website that is loaded, I mean filled to the brim loaded, with free resources for quilters. It has a Free Quilt Block Patterns Library that includes pictures of block construction, pressing directions and tips. The quilt block patterns are categorized by name and by size which is so helpful.
  1. With a library of over 150 Free Quilt Block Patterns, Quilting Daily has you covered. This is the home of McCall’s Publishing, Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting, Quiltmaker (you remember Quiltmaker’s 100 Quilt Blocks Magazines) and Quilting Arts Magazine among others. You’ll find quilt blocks from easy to challenging and traditional to modern, all categorized alphabetically.
  1. Patchwork Square is a place for quilters to download free quilt blocks for personal use. Wendy, the creator of this website, says it’s an ongoing adventure with new quilt block patterns being added regularly. You’ll find something for every skill level and they’re organized by name, size and style. This makes it easy to find “flower quilt blocks” or “nine-patch blocks” for example.
  1. Quilt Blocks Galore is just what it says; home to hundreds of free quilt block patterns courtesy of Quilter’s Cache. Not only are there block patterns, but you’ll also find quilt border patterns, paper piecing templates, simple applique shapes, quilt labels and yardage formulas to name a few!
  1. All People Quilt has a nice selection of traditional quilt blocks and fun applique designs available. Their instructions are very easy to follow and there is a download link available for most patterns.
  1. Fave Quilts has 50+ Free Quilt Block Patterns & Quilt Block Ideas that range from traditional to modern. I liked the variety here, so it’s definitely worth a look.
  1. If you’re looking specifically for applique blocks, check out Free Applique where you’ll find tons of patterns that you can download and print. They’re categorized by basic shapes and by theme.
  1. Another applique resource is Fave Quilts featuring 26 Free Applique Quilt Patterns that are very cute. These aren’t necessarily quilt blocks, but some of them could be used as such, and I thought they were worth mentioning.

Resource Books

I also thought I would mention several books that are wonderful resources for quilt blocks (affiliate links).


There you have it! Lots of free quilt block pattern resources to add to your list along with book recommendations to add to your library. Happy Quilting!

  1. Thanks again for informing us of these free resources. Can hardly wait to explore them. Have recently been perusing the free patterns offered by fabric companies as well, i.e. Moda and Robert Kaufman. Lots more to explore!

  2. Thank you, Julie. I subscribe to McCall’s Quilting and American Patchwork and Quilting, so I’m very familiar with Quilting Daily and All People Quilt. The others, however, I didn’t know about and I’ve now bookmarked them. 🙂 I also second your recommendation of Judy Hopkins’ book. I have all three of her “Around the Block” books and they are a treasure trove of information. I use them often.

  3. Thanks for sharing all these sites! New ideas are always good, and I just enjoy seeing all the creativity around! Thanks!

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
