With the nine-patches done and dusted and already sewn into a top, you may have guessed that I’ve started a new Leader/Ender project.
This one was inspired by a picture Mom sent me
I don’t know where it came from, so I can’t provide credit, but isn’t it cool? And done with five inch squares – of which I have a lot.
To prepare, I sorted my scrap 5″ square stash into darks and lights.
The darks are set aside for the centre squares. The lights got chopped in half so I had a series of 2.5″x5″ rectangles. Then I cut a whole whack of 1.5″ plain black squares for snowballing the corners of those rectangles.
This kind of thing is perfect for L&E projects – simple and mindless. And since each one of those rectangles gets four star points, its going to take a while. Still… you know me, I couldn’t resist working ahead a bit just to see how things would look.
One dark 5″ square, two snowballed rectangles, and a 2.5″black square, and voila! We have our block. Add up a whole bunch of those…. and we’ll have one fabulous scrappy quilt!
Of course, I have an awful lot of rectangles to snowbal first, so this one is going to be an L&E for a good long time!
