Default Please help identify these vintage quilt pieces

Hello, I am trying to identify these little pants to a complete quilting pattern. I can't seem to find anything online that resemble these 2 piece orphans ( I think they were pants, dungarees or overalls?).
Over all measure 5" tall by 6" across. Thank you in advance for looking.

I also think they may be Little Boy Bitches quilt block pieces.

Thank you, Tartan. I was sure it wasn't Overhaul Sam aka Overall Bill as those use more rounded applique shapes. That sure looks like what those pieces would be used for. I found a link about the block at http://grandmotherschoice.blogspot.c...ss-reform.html
You have to scroll down about half way before you get to the pattern and the other pieces needed. (Look at all those inset seams.)

Very interesting indeed! I have never seen this pattern before and I went to the link and was amazed about the history that goes with the block. This is not a block I would be interested in making. There are to many inset seams.. Nice idea though. This is something to work up on EQ8.

I immediately thought of Dresden plate. The pieces don't remind me of OverAll Bill, etc., but much to my dismay, I don't know everything!

Fun "board shorts" whatever they may be!

How many are in a set? Looks like more than one and so I'm wondering if they do go around in a circle or not. That would be appliqued to a background with a circle applique in the center.
