    Red face Patchork and Quilting in Greece.

    I am making a double wedding ring quilt with a centre medallion for my niece's wedding at the end of June.
    Her maternal grandma is from Greece. I am looking for an idea to put on the back to represent Greece.
    Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions. Front of quilt has a rose because she is English and a thistle as he comes from Scotland. Grandparents would be a bottle kiln for one set of grandparents stuck on Greece.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    What about a "Greek key" block or border? If you seacrch for either there are lots of free patterns
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Greek flag, Greek key (my wedding band is greek key!), Olympics symbol (linking circles). I hope you used blue and white in the quilt.

    My husband is Greek and his parents are from Rhodos in a little town called Malona. When we visit in the summer, I am always struck by the beautiful tile and pottery patterns available. Perhaps something like that on the back? Then it could be reversible?

    BTW - LOVE your puppy - is that a Bijon? My quilting companion is my small Bijon Wilfred who sits on my feet when I sew....
