About Those Leaders/Enders…

Remember these? This is just a fraction of the 2 inch four patches I’ve made as leader/enders.

I need more for the quilt I have in mind, but I decided to spend some time cutting some other pieces for this quilt. I used this Accuquilt die. With this, I can cut120 squares at one time.

I will need more, but there is over 700 here to get me started.

Of course I had to piece a block to see how it would look!

I will need 36 of these 16 inch blocks to make the quilt I want. I love huge quilts made from tiny pieces.

I also wanted to say thank you for all your sweet comments on my son’s Lego quilt shop! I’ve passed along your kind words. I’ve been doing some traveling of late with more to come so I apologize for not responding to all of your comments.

Have a great day!

    Love your sample block; what fun! I have lots of 4-patches sewn as L&Es in 2.5″ size, so I may do this and use mine up, add a few mini 4-patches to go into the block and sew, sew, sew. 🙂 Thank you for a great sample/demo.

  2. Of course you did have to start piecing it. Now you will be that much more motivated to make more little blocks. Very nice!

    WOW, looks great! Think I have some of those fabrics too! Love civil war fabrics.

  4. Isn’t it always amazing when the little feeder blocks (as I call them) pile up? Yours are sweet and I love this block!!
