Greek CrossQuilt Block Pattern
This Greek Cross quilt pattern is one of the many variations of the nine patch block. However, the Greek Cross is quite an elaborate version, and made up in an analogous color harmony, three colors in the same color family in about the same light and dark value. It is a beautifully unusual quilt.
The block is nine inches square and the strips between the blocks are three inches wide.
The quilt would use 49 blocks, 7 wide by 7 long, and puts together with strips 3 inches wide by 9 inches long. Fill in the intersection squares at the end of the strips, when putting together with blue 3-inch squares. Forty-nine pieced blocks, 84 lavender strips, and 36 blue 3-inch squares will finish about 81 by 87 inches if 3-inch strips are added at top and bottom for additional length.
Fabric requirements: 2 ½ yards of lavender, 2 yards white, 1 ½ yards blue and 2 yards of rose.
Allow extra for seams on all blocks.
