I know it has been a long, long, l-o-n-g time since I've posted new Midget Blocks. Trust me, there were many valid reasons for taking a break but I think I can work my way around the biggest one so today we're going to start Midget Block Mondays! Don't you just love the catchy title? What in the world will we do Tuesday - Saturday? I never seem to grow tired of working with blocks from this quilt. They're perfect for all kinds of projects using all styles of fabric. The antique quilt is filled with blocks made using solid color fabrics.

Former first lady Betty Ford was laid to rest last week. Ford Museum. I was in Grand Rapids when former President Ford was laid to rest and waited in line with many other to pay my respects. I'm in Traverse City for the summer so I couldn't pay my respects in person for the passing of Betty but felt a Midget Block in her honor was the least I could do. I hope you'll enjoy making it.

Post a Comment. On August 3, , I stumbled, accidentally onto a sight called Sentimental Stitches. There were patterns for lots of miniature quilt blocks from a depression era quilt.
I opened the seam at the edge as I plan to eventually assemble the blocks by machine. It sounded like a great buy—has ten feet, including walking foot and free motion quilting feet and an extension table too! There was finally some progress on my Nearly Insane blocks, thanks to the fact that I was without a sewing machine while visiting my son! I had printed out patterns for the first fifty blocks at home and had the sense to carry them with me along with the Summer Breeze III fabric by Moda that I am using for my quilt.
