MILE-a-Minute, Giblets and Gravy a quilt block by any other name.

Straight Setting Mile a Minute Blocks / foundation peiced.

These are MILE A MINUTE BLOCKS made a couple of years ago by my daughter when she was pregnant with my grandson. She was just learning to sew and said she liked the mindless and forgiving sewing of these blocks. She just took scraps / strings and added them using the sew and flip method, until the block was big enough to square up to a consistent size. If you looked at the inside you would see that her quarter inch needed working on. She does much better now then she did then. I sewed on sashing around the blocks to get them to 11-1/2 inches in size. I am currently trying to decide whether I should stagger the blocks or have them line up in a traditional straight setting. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
