It was a long day of quilting, then a long night of sewing down binding, but….
My scrappy Leader & Ender quilt is complete! (Now called Queen of the Crossroads).
It’s a big one, at about 90″ square. As you know, we don’t do a lot of huge quilts, but it was so easy to make these blocks, and I had so many scraps, it would have been a shame to make this one small.
Although you can see it’s more or less the same pattern as Mom’s, how we put the blocks together made a bit of a difference. Mine also doesn’t have any fancy quilting like hers… just my usual loops. Still, I think it’s pretty wonderful
You all know how I feel about diagonal plaid, and I think it was the perfect thing for border and binding. There was one small hiccup though. You may recall that I planned to use a striped fabric for the backing. Well, it turns out I did my math wrong, and didn’t have quite enough for the back. Mom came to the rescue with this beautiful royal purple fabric.
The aqua stripe would have been nice, but I think this one is pretty grand too.
If you’re interested, this royal beauty is available in the shop now!
