DWMonday ~ Leaders/Enders

I started a new leader/ended project. It might look a little familiar.

Look a little like my Scrappy Rectangles Quilt?  No accident. I loved that one so much, I cut out another, this time in Civil War repro fabrics. I might set these the same:

Or I might set them like this:

I like it both ways. For now, I’m just sewing a light and a dark rectangle together into twosies. When I have more done, I’ll decide on a setting.

Have a great day!

  1. Those colors look wonderful together. Great project for using up scraps.

  2. I’m working on a leaders/enders project with rectangles too!!. My fabric is a truly scrappy mess of all the leftovers from my projects this past year. I was playing with layout this weekend and liked the second one you have pictured (zigzag)…but I’m prone to change my mind, so we’ll see!

    I always enjoy seeing your new projects. I see I have a lot of the fabrics you are using. Hope you are enjoying your time house sitting. Hugs

  4. Oh what fun! Love those fabrics. And, I like the first setting best. Have fun with them.

  5. Oh my gosh – that will be great with those fabrics!

    Love it, Katy! Your earlier rectangle quilt was beautiful, and I cannot wait to see this one done in CW fabrics! Love both of the settings you are considering…looking forward to seeing what you decide….

  8. I really liked your first one too, and this one will be just as pretty! It’s an easy pattern, but so effective. Have fun playing! 🙂

    I love this type of sewing! You get a quilt while making another. I’m going the same, but with 1.5 inch squares. But I am making the cover quilt from Bonnie Hunters new book.

  10. Civil war fabrics will look completely different and still be easy to chain piece as leader/ enders- great idea

    Katy, Could you explain the process of leader/enders a little more? I see you do these often & I
    really don’t know how it works. Thanks! Hope you’re enjoying your time in Arizona

    Beautiful fabrics. I love the leaders and enders method. It’s like getting a quilt for free – almost.

    Always fun to start a new project. I have started a new leader ender too. Maybe I should blog about it some day. I love the concept behind leader enders. Such a great way to get a project going.

    Great leaders and enders project. Either setting will look great
