Leaders/Enders Progress

It’s amazing how quickly a quilt top goes together when using leaders and enders.  I placed this L/E project at my sewing machine the beginning of the year and now I have the main section together! I set aside all my 1 1/2″ green strips and sewed them all around the outside.

Now I will continue to piece the L/E’s and make a border of two squares across and as many down as needed for the sides, top and bottom.

Unfortunately, I haven’t made much progress on those because I have been doing  string quilt piecing on a foundation which is not L/E friendly and at another machine I have been paper piecing which is also not L/E friendly.  But that’s okay – there are many more projects in the wings!

Although, this happened today (it was scheduled, not a surprise) so now there is much neglected yard work to get to. I had been putting it off until the tree work was all done. It has been a glorious spring bloom this year, so I know it’s all worth it!

  1. Good Morning! Wow – it see daffodils and a ROSE already in bloom. That must be so fabulous. I agree about how quickly the L/E idea helps get a project together quickly. Maybe because we’re not really focused on it, or that it is kind of stolen/sneaky sewing time? It sure makes for a nice filler project! ~smile~ Roseanne
