QotG check-in

It felt like I was making HUGE progress on the Leader/Ender nine patches, so I just had to lay it out on the design bed and see…


Only three more rows since the last time I showed you. I think I’m going to need at least three more to make it the size I want. So for now… just keep sewing, just keep sewing…

Here’s where everything else in my quilting world is at:

  • Mystic Maze: Just needs a border. Which I have… and backing fabric. This one will be finished soon
  • Bear Mountain: Paws are together and I’m stash-diving for border fabric.
  • Paisley’s Christmas quilt: Flowers are done. I just need to add sashing and hunt up some border and backing fabric.
  • Time to sew: Can you believe I completely forgot about this one? I haven’t worked on it in ages!!!! It’s  a good thing I keep a list! Hopefully I can do a few blocks this week.
  • Leader & Ender Rainbow Nine Patches: Getting there but still lots to make!

    That’s so pretty! I can’t imagine how big your stash is to come up with that many different materials in the same color.

    Love those nine patches and the colors/fabrics you have used. That is going to be a pretty quilt. Your completed list far exceeds the work in progress list!


  3. I love 9 patch and all little square quilts more than any other type! The seedlings are up from you! I soaked them overnight last week and they are saying hello. I worried about them while i was at Zion National Park.


    1. when you sew, they recommend starting with a scrap piece of fabric, sewing your project, then ending with another scrap… this prevents waste and long tails to cut off. To further prevent waste, instead of using scraps, some quilters piece blocks – or parts of blocks. Essentially, I’m working on two different projects at once.

You may have heard quilter’s talk about using leaders and enders. I had heard these terms many times and didn’t have a clue what they were talking about until I went to a trunk show last fall and was enlightened as to what they were. quiltsbyjen.ca
