    Does Anyone Know the Name of this Pattern?

    I was at a house museum today and saw a quilt with the below pattern. It's certainly simple and I could figure out how to do it on my own but I was just wondering if it had a name I could look up for examples, etc. In the quilt I saw the whole piece was maybe 2 inches total and they were all adjoining, no sashing. It also didn't really have the 3D effect you sort of see in the picture. Excuse my poor paint skills!

    Don't know if the block has a name but I think the mitered borders are called frames? Here are two links on how to do them

    It's called a square with a mitred border around it.

    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    My block picture is a square with a miter border around it. The square was sewn on the quarter hst. The square could be fussy cut or plain fabric. Simple and fast.
