Midget Block #101 - Cat's Cradle
I made a Midget Block!! Wow...I haven't had a Tiny Tuesday posting since forever..look at me go!
I am a little bit out of practice but I made it turn out okay even though I did need to press it into submission. I sewed it using my Singer 301a (love that machine!) and because the block pieces are so small I did have to be very careful to make sure my seam allowance was correct. Even then I still had difficulty. After looking at it I realized that somehow I did cut a couple of the red triangles a bit small but I made it work anyway. This block finishes at 4.5" and I have added it to the stash of blocks I have already made.
I think when I make the next one I will try to do a group picture of all of the Midget Blocks I have made so far. I have about 40 done and many more are still to come!
These blocks were provided by Sentimental Stitches for free and they can be found here. The last I checked blocks 51 to 196 were still available for free. Sadly, I missed out on getting the first 50. :(
