All the HSTs for the Leader & Ender quilt have been made. After it all, I ended up with 256, which will give me a quilt that 64 inches before borders. That’s not to shabby if I do say so myself.
That also means that it’s now gone from L&E quilt into the regular rotation.
And that I needed a new L&E project. I had just the thing. It involved cutting up some leftover white-on-white pieces into five inch squares. And gathering a pile of 2.5 scraps.
But that’s done, and now I’m ready to rock. Or snowball…
That’s right… simply snowball opposite corners. Then place those two blocks together like so…
And repeat many, many times… and you get a quilt top that looks something like this:
Mom shared that pic with me the other week after if popped up in her facebook feed. I immediately knew it was going to be my next L&E quilt. I only have enough of the white fabric for a baby blanket. But that’s ok. It will keep me going for a while anyway.
Here’s where my other projects are at:
- Cluckin’ Eh! – Sewing those adorable chicks
- Spinwheels – Sewing pinwheels still
- Around the World in 256 Days – getting ready to sew all those HSTs together.
- Shave and a Haircut – Blocks done, ready for sashing
- Homecoming quilt – Waiting for round 6!
- L&E quilt – As you see above

That’s a fun block! I love those swirly hearts in the quilting pattern. It looks like something even I could do which isn’t much.
I love how delicate that new quilt will be. That’s a perfect pattern for a baby quilt.
I adore the swirls of the quiliting; it really makes the colours and patterns of the fabric come together, like the purrfect frame for a piece of artwork.
Very nice fabrics and the quilting on the finished quilt is so pretty and delicate.
The new L&E project is going to be a beautiful baby quilt.
What a great use of those little snowball blocks! A great plan from your Mom!
