Hi there! Lee here again from Freshly Pieced. I’;m back with a fun, easy, and striking quilt design that we’;re going to sew together over the next three weeks—my Greek Key quilt! Sound fun? (And no, there’;s no paper-piecing in this one, although I’;m glad you all loved my paper-piecing-made-easy post?a few weeks ago!)

And it really is easypersonalized gifts for 1 year old, I promise.?If you’;ve ever made a log cabin block,?this quilt will be a piece of cake. If you haven’;t made a log cabin block, well,?this quilt will still be a piece of cake, and it’;s the perfect way to learn about that design! I’;ve added some strip piecing into the mix to make it even easier and quicker.?Once the quilt top is sewn together, we’;ll finish it off with some crosshatch straight-line quilting to really bring out the geometric feel of the design.

You may already be aware of this, but I wanted to share because I’m beyond excited & if it saves just one table from paint, it’s worth it! Last week, I had my grandmother’s dining room set moved into our home.?When?she passed away my mother quickly sold her set & moved it into my childhood home. At the time I was just 8 years old & didn’t understand why she sold a newer dining room set & replaced it with an older one. It’s something I truly appreciate about my mom. She valued things far beyond their monetary value. I get it now – there’s something about the history of a piece, the memories shared at the table, the birthdays celebrated around it, & the?treasures it holds.
