I remember about 11-12 years ago at a quilt retreat I went to I heard 2 of my BFF's talking about what they were doing with their Leader/Enders and I was thinking in my head "what are you talking about?". I did ask and got an explanation but I truly didn't "get" the whole thing so I didn't jump on the bandwagon. I must also admit that I don't ALWAYS do it now either but I have a few projects I'd like to make that call for lots of small scrappy blocks so I have been doing some cutting and sewing.....
I found a quilt on a blog and sent my friend Robin the link to it and asked her if she could "hook me up" thru her quilt program. This mock up is probably 8 years old and has been used to make 2 quilts so far......with # 3 in the works.
I have LOTS of 2 inch kona snow squares and every quilt I've made over the last couple of years has a scrap of it cut up waiting to be incorporated into this top.
I recently took all my pieces and assembled 4 blocks with 100 squares in each block.
This was my long term project until this week.............
Bonnie Hunter announced her 2015 Leader/Ender Challenge.....TUMBLERS!
I love little tumblers!
I remember back in December or January I'd seen a McCalls Quilting Magazine with a Civil War like tumbler quilt on the cover so I started using my Go Cutter with scraps and figured I'd make one just like the magazine. Well, one project led to another and the tumblers got put away and forgotten about
I have a great variety of tumblers to use for the challenge so I'll work on them for now.
Do you Leader/Ender?
And here's 7 month old Olivia.....cute huh?
