Plain fabric blocks are an easy, quick and beautiful addition to any quilt top. With all of the amazing fabric patterns available, plain square quilt blocks combine into wonderful creations. More often, they are used as fill space between more intricately pieced blocks. Like the knitted blocks, very few of us who learned these skills as a child don’t have small starter quilts made of plain fabric squares. Those quilt blocks can be made of patterned fabric or a solid color.
Fabric manufacturers also offer large images printed right on the material. Pictures of solar systems or tea pots or African wildlife are all motifs that require quilt top patterns with ample area to display the images. Plain quilt blocks made up of the beautiful large pictures can be such an interesting addition to a themed quilt top.
