Scrapbuster – A Work in Progress

About a year ago I put a pile of 2 1/2″ green print squares at my sewing machine and began a “leader ender” project. This is a Bonnie Hunter idea that allows you to make 2 quilts at once! I wanted to set the small squares off with a 4 1/2″ square that was a green on white print.  At first I had the greens in groups of four, but decided to change things up a bit and make it a block of 6 (two rows of three). I loved the look, and setting it on point, but was not able to have an even edge with all of the white blocks in a row. It just didn’t line up because of the odd size. That’s okay – I really like it! And, I think the quilt police have finally given up on me! I have used a lime green print for the border. Amazing how it brings out all the different greens in the quilt top. I also added an outside border that somewhat mimicked the quilt pattern. I find that borders like these really help to highlight the main part of the quilt.

Machine quilting is definitely my weak point, so there’s no telling when the WIP will be a finished project. I am going to make myself enjoy the process and pat myself on the back knowing that I am stretching myself – a lot.

  2. I LOVE it!! So happy and cheerful…this will be great to snuggle up under during colder weather. I just recently heard about ‘leaders and enders’ – I’m going to have to give this a try! How big is your top?

  3. I love your design with 6 squares instead of 4, and that boarder is great too!
