I couldn't let Amy make midget blocks and not join in on the fun. I am resisting the urge to make another one tonight though. I can't make any grand statements about tomorrow. I've got to work in the morning and I am being good. I discovered when measuring my first midget block that my printer is shrinking everything just a wee bit. I suppose it wouldn't matter if everything was paper pieced, but combining different blocks might be a bit of a problem.
This one is called Wild Goose Chase and it has 57 pieces in a 4.5 inch finished block. Or in my case a 4.5 inch unfinished block which will shrink down to 4 inches when it is done. It looks in the picture like I cut off the point on that lower left middle goose, but I think it will flatten down when the paper comes out.
