BLOCKS by SIZE 9" Quilt Blocks

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Greek Cross quilt block is a simple nine patch design -- a perfect choice for a beginner quilter. It features only basic patches -- squares, rectangles and half square triangles.

The quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks while the quilt layout on the right uses an on point design, utilizing extra blank areas for pops of colour and a spot to show off your quilting skills.
