|BLOCKS by SIZE||10.5" Quilt Blocks|
A quilt block in a size of 10½ inches is not commonly used, but it is a nice "in-between" size to scale a quilt block when 14" is too big and 7" is too small. As you may have guessed, these quilt blocks fit into the category of seven patch since they are designed on a 7 x 7 grid.
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.
