Vintage Patchwork Mini Quilts To Hang On Walls Or On Your Table

Miniature Farmers Wife Quilt Sampler Blocks from Every Last Scrap

Even the tiniest pieces can make a darling little quilt.  And, they’re perfect for hand quilting. Make quaint little quilts that measure roughly 6 to 8 inches square to hang on walls, or display on tables. They’re so much fun to put together!


Practice piecing making these sweet miniature quilt blocks. The small blocks are a little fiddly, but surprisingly quick to put together. I suppose that when the longest seam in a block is 2 inches, with a finished block size of 1.5 inches, it isn’t all that surprising it should go together quickly!
