Midget Mania – Block 10 (aka Midget Block 102)


I'm glad to be back to the scheduled posting of Midget Mania after a migraine induced pause. I won't bore you with all the aggravating details because these Midget Blocks are much more fun. Having said that, this block was probably part of my migraine trigger!
The Midget Block quilt top is at home and I'm at the cottage so I've been writing my instructions from photographs instead of the actual quilt. I thought about asking Rob to measure something for me but because he works with numbers in the context of home construction he doesn't relate to our inches, quarter inch, eighth inch concept.

Look at this little stinker! It's like a quilt within a quilt!

In BlockBase the block looks like this

What was she thinking ??? I've never seen the block illustrated with just two sections together so it's a rectangular block and I've never seen it with sashing inserted. Was this a settion option pictured in the newspaper? Did she make the little hatchets and find out they weren't the right size and the sashing was her solution? That's my assumption and I'm sticking to it!

In the end I decided to draft the block for you exactly as it appears in the quilt. If you want to make it without the sashing that's okay. It's your quilt and you can stitch it as you heart desires. Remember you'll have to adjust the square hatchets to a finished size of 1 1/8".
