Midget Blocks - #52
Isn't this the cutest little block! I really do think I am having a "thing" about little blocks these days. What is not to love - they are little, they use up such small amounts of fabric, scraps really, and they are darn fun to make. Midget block #52 is also called Whirling Pinwheel and somehow I managed to get it to finish to the correct size. I had a little bit of trouble getting it to align properly so I ended up removing all of the paper and then sewing all of the segments together. My points are not all perfect but I am okay with that! After a bit of pressing and coaxing I am happy with the result. I used a 2" wide strip of purple fabric with mini flowers on it from my strip bins and even with the paper-piecing I still had leftovers. I have decided to make all of my midget blocks with a neutral, off-white solid background fabric. It is the same fabric that I am using for my Dear Jane blocks.
Happy Birthday to my big sister, Glenda!
