free quilt blocks quilt block mania quilting Jun 01, 2021

Today is the first Tuesday of the month and that means it's time for Quilt Block Mania blog tour day - YAY!!

June 2021- This month's FREE quilt block theme is International with carte blanche for our color story!  

(Quilt Block Mania Blocks are only available Free for a limited time)

Traveling to Greece has always been on my bucket list so when the international theme came up... this block was top of mind.

Have you ever traveled to Greece? What travel destination is on your bucket list?

The colour inspiration came from these beautiful sceneries.  The blue tones with a little splash of pink from those gorgeous flowers... I bet they smell even better than they look!!   

Change up the light and darks for a new look ... 

 And oohhhh… this block would also lend itself well to a scrappy stash buster too!

I love how the Greek Cross block... is a simple variation of the churn dash or the monkey wrench block and how there are countless combinations to create unique fun quilts.

...and just like that, by simply switching up the fabric placement a whole new design emerges!!! Don't you just love that?

I can't wait to see it in the Quilting BEE!!
