The classic Greek key block takes a wonky turn in Rewind, a delightful design from Karla Alexander of Saginaw Street Quilts. Pairs of blocks unwind in slightly different ways, thanks to a clever method of cutting strips free form. I’ll share my method of keeping track of those strips as well as tips for trimming and pressing. Finished size: 52” x 68” or larger, depending on size of your trimmed blocks.
