Do Over Midget – More Free Patterns – I Need Your Opinions



Here's my second try at the Circular Saw Midget block. I like this one better! I didn't redo the entire block. I just took the Nine Patch seams apart, appliqued a new center piece and put it back together. Now I'm a happy quilter.

Circular Saw Do Over


Have you checked out the Free Patterns Online section lately? I forgot to tell everyone I reorganized that long list of titles and added a bunch of new links. There's still a long list but it's divided into categories so you can find the type of project you're looking for a little easier. The newest additions are at the beginning of each group.



I'm off to finish the binding on a lap quilt and snuggle with Clutch on the couch and dream about the year ahead.

With the beginning of that new year I've been trying to decide what I'd like to present for you over the next year. I've considered a quick and easy project of the week. We're not doing much with the Civil War era of quilt making and I have a fantastic pieced and appliqued sampler quilt made by Sally Ride in 1863. The applique is very easy and each block is different so I've considered including that on Monday when the Midget Blocks are posted.
Do you want more industry reports - designer interviews - ????? I would really appreciate your feedback on this. We have almost 1500 quilters on the newsletter list so that leaves just a mere 26,998,500 we need to reach. Here's your chance to sound off - whatcha want?

    hello Gayle,
    I just love the idea of the civil war applique quilt. I live in a rural[very rural]area. the drive to get groceries and essetials is 2 hours!! [4 hour return trip]I do hand work in the car going and coming. I would love a diversion from the grandmother’s flower garden quilt I have been working on for years now!! I really need a change and appliqued flowers seem heavenly to me….when do we start lol

    Hi Gayle, would love to do the Sally Ride 1863 quilt with applique. I am finishing the binding on my DJ and still have plenty of Civil War fabrics that are looking for a new quilt. The midget blocks are fun.

    Gayle-would just love a civil war era quilt to work on. I live in Pa. and have gone to Gettysburg many times. Wish everyone could visit there. I counted cross stitched a sampler that I bought in the Eisenhower farm gift shop. I got that done. I would like to do a civil war patterned quilt. My husband’s grandfather was born in 1879 and passed away in 1977. He lived to be 98 and was a dear soul. Jan/Pa
