Tiny Friday (?): #22 Kaleidoscope

WOW!   Still on a Midget Blocks roll!!!  It's not Tuesday, but some midget inspiration was in my blood this morning, so....yeah :)

After attempting and attempting those frustratingly SMALL paper-pieced center sections of this block...with the partial seams:  I finally threw my hands up and said "If this block is ever going to get finished, it'll have to be appliqued!!!" :p

The center pieces of each section were eliminated;  Sorry!  But I'd rather have a finish that STILL is a cute 4.5" finish than have units of a block that sit and sit on the "will be done someday" pile :)

Every piece shown (pink and red) has been fused to a white background square and then machine stitched in place. 

Yay....some more Midget Mania progress.

Good for you...persistence wins again! You stuck with it and figured out a way to make it work. Your block looks great!

Yea! Glad you found a way to get it done! Looks great btw, regardless of what technique you used, that is what counts.
