This is Midget Block number 67 and it is called Endless Chain. It was paper pieced in 16 subsections which were sewn together as a simple sixteen patch. Each section has 5 pieces which brings the total for this block to 80 pieces. No wonder it took so long!
I modified the directions slightly. Instead of being trimmed to squares, each piece was supposed to but cut as a pie shaped wedge. The pie shapes were then supposed to have little triangles sewn in between as inset pieces. I am not overly fond of trying to hand sew inset seams to anything foundation pieced. Instead I added another corner of background to each section and then trimmed it to a simple square. It definitely added bulk to an already seem heavy block, but I'm not sure I could have done it the other way with any success.
So here is Endless chain, with all its tiny little angles. This one really would be pretty as a full sized quilt, with bigger blocks of course. It makes a nice star shaped section when all the blocks come together.
