Check out the site Quilterscache.com which is a huge collection of blocks. They are sorted by name of block or by size of block, you choose which category. Each choice has the fabric requirements for one block, as well as the cutting and assembling directions. The directions are easy to follow and you don’t have to commit to a larger project if you decide you aren’t happy with color choices or the finished block.
It also allows you to try different types/varieties of single blocks which, if made in the same size, may be incorporated into a larger project later. Additionally, making single blocks can help you build your skills for accurate piecing. There are lessons, how-tos, conversions, etc. There is generally an image of an entire quilt made of the block to give you an idea how it would look.
