Anyone that knows me knows that I'm not a leader/ender type of person all the time but there's that occasional project where I know I need them so I get strict about using them. The "Summer Star" blocks are the perfect example of needing a leader/ender.
Last summer I saw a "Postage Stamp" quilt on the Red Pepper blog that I fell in love with so since I was coming down off my "Easy Street" high having used tons of black on white fabrics, I grabbed the basket of scraps and cut them into 2-1/2 inch squares and put them with all my pretty colored squares and had a leader/ender ready for use.
Somehow, the basket was relegated to a shelf for a time but pulled back out last week and the connecting started.
I'd decided right off the bat that I didn't want to use anything that didn't have a white background. No tans or off color white, strictly WHITE!
I had a lot of fun with the fabrics too and this picture of one of the sections of the quilt shows some of my favorite whites....Those little fish, the little tiny bees, math equations, the hangers etc.....
I had an awesome variety because when buying for Easy Street I did a LOT of damage at the online quilt shops. I don't think a week went by that I didn't acquire something :)
I still have a TON of black on white fabrics in my cabinet so this is not the last quilt I'll be making with that color way.
It's all folded up and ready for the quilter.......
I want to bring it to Indiana with me in mid May for show n tell so it's heading to the post office tomorrow morning.....
It's so nice that we can start using the lawn and back porch for some photo shoots!!!!
