Midget blocks

Here's what I've started doing in my spare time. These midget blocks are part of an online project at a site called "Sentimental Stitches". If I was more proficient at doing the hyperlink thing, I'd set it up for you. I've got to get back to that...Midget Blocks

Thanks, Linda! Did it work?


 

These little blocks are 5" unfinished. They can all be paper-pieced but the flying geese block is the only one I did that way. The other two were easy enough to piece traditionally. They post instructions to one block on Monday mornings and you can get instructions to blocks that have been previously posted.

I've thought I might like to do the Dear Jane blocks and I think these will fit the bill nicely. Especially since the instructions are free! lol

I'm feeling a little under the weather today. Woke up with a sore throat and a nagging little cough. I'm hoping it's nothing more than allergies.

This past week had me working on those curtains for the shop. Got them all done and put up. Although, I think I still need to make one more to go over the door with the louvered windows. We couldn't decide if we should put one there, but it sure will finish the total look.

I've also been working on birthday blocks for another group I'm in. I had three to do this month. Birthdays, that is. I make two blocks from the fabric the birthday girl has sent. This time I've made the siggie blocks from leftover fabric. A star pattern works well to write in the center.

Better go check the lotto numbers. Might be rich! lol Posted by Picasa

So sorry to hear you are under the weather - allergies can be the worst! Hope you are feeling better very soon.

As Hedgehog said, it worked great! Stick with me, kiddo and we'll get this stuff figured out, LOL.

She has a lot of wonderful fall patterns on the site as well--I found those when I was looking for the link. At least I THINK it was there--was surfing a bit yesterday.
