Because of the unauthorized use, copying and distribution of these patterns by a quilt shop owner in the Netherlands, the links to the free patterns had to be removed. I apologize to all the honest quilters around the world who can no longer enjoy these patterns through a free digital download option. I had the good fortune to acquire a unique Depression Era sampler quilt constructed of 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. All free patterns are presented for your personal use only.

Post a Comment. On August 3, , I stumbled, accidentally onto a sight called Sentimental Stitches. There were patterns for lots of miniature quilt blocks from a depression era quilt. I quickly saved them all off and sewed together the first one. I wasn't planning on starting a long term project, but they were too cute to resist. Since then I have tried to make one block each week, slowly building up a nicely sized collection of tiny little blocks.
I know it has been a long, long, l-o-n-g time since I've posted new Midget Blocks. Trust me, there were many valid reasons for taking a break but I think I can work my way around the biggest one so today we're going to start Midget Block Mondays! Don't you just love the catchy title? What in the world will we do Tuesday - Saturday? I never seem to grow tired of working with blocks from this quilt.
They are constructed in a variety of techniques including foundation piecing, applique, machine and hand piecing depending on which one is the easiest way to construct that particular block. There are a total of blocks in the collection totaling pages of patterns. You can purchase the blocks in sets of 50 blocks for all at one time.
