Walk Around the Block, Miniature Quilt

© Janet Wickell

Miniature Quilt

Finished Size: 22" Square

Walk Around the Block is an easy miniature medallion quilt. Its pictorial center medallion is framed by a dark narrow border and large triangles. Strip pieced nine-patch and bar blocks, plus very dark triangles, complete the center section of the quilt.

I chose a house pictorial for my center block, but this quilt would work with any theme you'd like to use.

  • Santa surrounded by Christmas colors
  • Fashionista center, shoes, hats and other items in borders
  • Cats or dogs with related prints
