Around The Block Quilt

This is Pauline's Around the Block quilt which is a pattern from the book Easy Layer Cake Quilts 2.  Pauline changed the pattern a bit and instead of using 3" square she changed it to 2 1/2" squares so should could use the pre-cut minis.

She chose Chantilly Lace for the pantograph design and I used white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

Pauline is a beginner quilter and I think she did a great job piecing her quilt and adapting this pattern to work for her!  When I asked if I could share photos of her quilt on my blog she said "I presume under the heading how long arming can make a quilt look good".  LOL!  We all know its not a quilt until it is quilted, and I really enjoy bring my clients quilt to life!


  1. I love seeing those words "a new quilter"!! Pauline did a great job and I hope she has caught our bug!! Great job, Pauline and cheers to many more years of quilts!

  2. Lovely quilt! I love the quilting motif also.

  3. This is a great quilt. Welcome to the club.
