Greek Cross

The Greek Cross quilt block has to be one of the perfect blocks to learn to quilt. It just cannot be any easier. Just half square triangles and a bit of strip piecing.

Making a scrappy Greek cross quilt could be a real challenge. I might try it!

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
