I haven't managed to find time to pin-baste the next couple of tops, so I pulled out a "leader and ender" project that I designed on EQ7 a while ago.
I began with 4-patch blocks that I had made with my 2 inch squares of scraps.  Then put four 4-patch blocks together to make a 16 patch block.  

 For the alternate block, I decided on a pinwheel made of 4 half-square triangle blocks (or triangle square blocks).  Love the assembly line sewing!

I am using a consistant light fabric for the pinwheels and the pieced borders that I have planned.  I chose fabric from my floral stash to make all the pinwheels. 
The quilt center is almost stitched together, again - assembly line piecing, and I have the first border prepared and ready to sew, as soon as I press all the seams....

Check out other's creativity this week at Judy's Patchwork Times.


  1. Can't wait to see the assembled top. Love leader and enders.

  2. Love scrap quilts, love using leftovers and love leaders and enders! Can't wait to see how this evolves.

  3. It looks as though you and I share the same approach to L&Es: after a while I get impatient with sewing them between other blocks/units, and I just go ahead and crank out a bunch. In no time at all there's a stack of blocks ready to go....your 16p + pinwheels look intriguing!

  4. I love scrap quilts and use leaders & enders techniques too. Looking forward to seeing the two blocs together.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
