My First Quilt Block!

Having decided to take up quilting for my next sewing challenge, I have finished making my first ever quilt block.  It is a Greek Cross, and the instructions can be found on Marcia Hohn’s amazing Quilters Cache website.

I have decided to have a go at Popular Patchwork’s stay at home quilt challenge for 2010.  The idea is you make an initial block, then they will show you how to add a different style border to it each month until you end up with a whole quilt top by the end of the year.  The instructions said to make a 12 1/2 inch block for starters and mine is only 12 inches but hopefully I will be able to work out the maths required!!

I know it’s not perfect but I am pretty pleased with it for my first attempt 🙂

Greek Cross Quilt Block



  1. It’s lovely and I think you are going to have a lot of fun.

    • Thank you!

  2. Gorgeousness! I’ve got the magazine here, and am fabric shopping tomorrow. And if you are who I think you are, do you want to split a pack of fabric printing paper fabric with me? (it’s the 10 inch block project in the same magazine)

    Of course, if you aren’t who I think you are, then that’s a bit of a weird offer…..

    • Hi Miss C 🙂 assume that is you anyhow!!

      Good idea re spitting a pack of fabric printing paper, if not too late for that. Where do you go for your fabric? I recently discovered Kushionz n Kwiltz in Hunstanton which has an amazing selection of fabrics.

      Will have to meet up for coffee and cake and sewing chat soon
