Red, White & You! Midget Block 118


Clutch and I spent some time making a chart of which Midget Block patterns we've drafted and which ones we haven't. I find it hard to believe I haven't done today's block before now but it's not in the files. The only possibility is if it was Block 15. For some reason I can't find a copy of that block to save my soul. I've looked through all my back up disks, flash drives and old fashioned paper files with no success. I even did a Google Image search and came up empty handed. I did a lot of beautiful Midget Blocks you've made. I can't begin to tell you how inspiring you are. There's nothing better than seeing people enjoy my patterns. If there's anyone out there who has a copy of Block 15 I'd sure be grateful if you could share it back to me.

Block 118 is a classic with many names but the Week by Week Sampler quilter simply called it Star. It's the second block in the first row.

Here's the block in my red and white fabrics. I regret choosing a fabric with a touch of blue in there but the block is finished and it's already set together with other blocks so I'm resisting the urge to make another one. I have however sorted the red fabrics I have here at the lake and pulled out any that have obvious additions of other colors in the prints. I am missing my Grand Rapids stash at the moment.

Here's today's pattern:

    I have block 15 – but it is a string block and nothing like today’s block. I will try to email you back the file I have.

    I just sent you block 15 thru your email address found on this site. Sandra

    What size do I cut the sashing strips? I love the idea of doing this in red and white. I have missed working on Dear Jane.
