Leader/Ender Update

I haven’t shared the progress on my leader/ender blocks in a while. This shows four blocks put together.img_1662-1

Each rectangle was cut 2  inches by 3 1/2 inches. I sew twosies as leaders/enders and when this little pan looks full, I stop and make a 12 inch block.img_3502

It doesn’t take long to make one or two blocks and is a good thing to do when I have a few minutes to fill.  I think I will stop at 64 blocks for a quilt 96 by 96. Maybe. I might change my mind. At this point, I have 41 blocks made. Here is what they look like all together.


I have really enjoyed making these and consider this project my first real success at using leaders/enders to create a whole new quilt.

    What a great idea, and a fun way to use up scraps. I need to get organized and do this.

  2. Wow, you are making so much progress on this Katy! 96×96 is a BIG quilt….my husband loves big quilts. He thinks I never make mine big enough!

    Looks good. That gray is a great alternate rectangle! (My leaders and enders are rather dormant, but not forgotten.)

    A grand mosaic!

  5. My leader ender attempts typically end up as “let’s work on this full time” projects. I keep trying, but so far none of mine have stayed leader-ender very long. Your blocks look GREAT!

  8. Wow! It’s beautiful!

  9. This looks great! I really like the irregular placement of colors. Too often, I think a quilt can look too planned. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

    Love this scrappy quilt! What is the grey fabric you used to offset all the bright colors? I’m making a scrappy Irish chain right now with primarily super bright Kaffe Fassett fabrics, and im struggling to find the setting fabrics. Thanks!
