Midget Blocks

Advertisements:

I had the good fortune to acquire a unique Depression Era sampler quilt constructed of 187 little blocks with the name of each block embroidered in the sashing underneath it.

In researching this unusual quilt found in a basement canning cupboard in California, I’ve concluded that the maker was very frugal and rather than order the patterns offered in the newspaper each week, she simply hand pieced a little block from the illustration. The blocks are presented here in a 4 1/2″ size which is slightly larger than the original 4″ blocks from the antique quilt.

  • The finished size of the Midget Blocks presented here is 4 1/2″. I’ll write the instructions based on the easiest way to construct the block.
  • I’ll post blocks on Mondays.
  • If you want to make them in their original 4″ size, you can order a complete set of the patterns in the Online Store by clicking on the following link – Week by Week Sampler Pattern.
  • Blocks 1 – 50 have been retired. A pattern set of these 4 1/2″ blocks can be purchased in the Online Store by clicking HERE.
