Labouriously

 My day today:
                 cut two rectangles of background fabric, 3 x 8
                 slice diagonally, corner to corner
                  arrange around a midget block as shown
                  sew two side
                  press and trim
                  sew the other two sides
                  square up to 6.5 inches
Repeat for 100 midget blocks
I'm slowly working my way through the Midgets, getting them sashed and arranged.  I have about 100 blocks done and have been working on them almost two years.  It is time to decide how many there should be and think about putting them together into a quilt.  Friday will be the two year mark.  I am trying to get them all arranged on the wall to have a big anniversary post.

Let's see 100 blocks at 6.5 square, you could have a nice square lap quilt with blocks set 10 X 10. Possibly have them all stitched together and quilted and bound on Friday..............Just saying! :D
