"Learn how to sew a Greek Cross Quilt Block during week 3 of our Spring Block of the Week! This easy block is perfect for a beginning quilter!! Also learn a technique for making squares out of strips of fabric within this week’s block!! This quilt block has a cute little cross in the middle! Webster’s definition of a Greek cross is one has an upright and a transverse shaft equal in length and intersecting at their middles. I’m sure that’s how this block got it’s name! Some of the other names for this block are Churn Dash, Double Monkey Wrench, or Grecian Square. These blocks are all made up of the same square, strip blocks, and half square triangles. But depending on where the contrast of color is, the name is different!!"
