Tiny Tuesday (Midgets) 6/14/11

I finished a block! I finally sewed! :)

Block 15 is a string block and paper pieced. I started 2 of the four pieces with the inside fabric and worked my way to the outside and then the other 2 were started with the outside and working towards the center. This way, the seams could be nested and I didn't have to fight the bulk of fabric the entire way. Here is the back of the block and you can see that two of the inside triangles are marked with G1 and those are the pieces that I started with the green and worked my way out. The other 2 were started with the blue.

Hopefully that makes enough sense for those coming after me to follow because check out the points on this block!

As much as I was dreading this block, it turned out super cute!

Anyone else have tiny blocks to share?

So glad you're finally sewing.

That came out great! I really need to get back to sewing and finishing that Midget block I started a few weeks ago.

Love this little block. So many little stripes but so perfect with the magic of paper piecing. You have inspired me to go and see what is next.
