There are numerous quilt blocks that are named for cities, states and other places. Here is just the start of the list in a variety of quilt block sizes.

Seven Patch Greek Cross

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This Seven Patch Greek Cross quilt block is for those who want a little more detail than the simplified Greek Cross block. Once your basic skills are established you might want to move on to this interesting version.

Seven patch quilt blocks are not as common as others, for the obvious reason that there are many more pieces in the block. However, once you want to challenge yourself a little, try out this verion of the Greek Cross. It is made with the most basic of shapes in quiltmaking -- squares, rectangles and half square triangles, so the only important consideration is careful attention to the precision of your quarter inch seams.

Lots of interesting setting arrangements can be made with this quilt block, and a few are illustrated in the sample quilts shown.
