Thanks to all who’ve followed us to the new blog so far. I’m still getting the hang of this WordPress thing. I’ve replied to all the comments from yesterday. Did you get an email when I did… or do you have to come back and manually check? Let me know when you have a chance.
As I’ve read more and more quilt blogs, I’ve discovered the magic of Leaders and Enders. For all you non-quilters, you can find an explanation of L&Es here.
As mentioned before as I’ve completed projects, I’ve been cutting the leftover fabrics into two sizes – 2.5 inch strips, and 4 inch squares. The strips are being used to build my scrappy log cabins, but I didn’t have a plan for the squares.
That is until I saw Wyoming Breezes’ Melting Pot quilt top.
The basket that holds the squares was getting quite full, and it was definitely time to start doing something with them
The quilt uses a lot of four patches, and they are perfect blocks to use for L&Es. I matched a bunch of squares up and put them to the test as I made a few more Disappearing Hourglass blocks
After making two blocks for the Disappearing quilt, I had quite a few squares sewn together, ready to turn into four patches…
It’s kind of amazing that you can build a quilt while building a totally different quilt!
