Years ago, Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville taught me about leaders and enders. You can read about it here. Now I always have a leader/ender project going. The last couple years, Bonnie has had a group leader/ender projects, first was Bow Ties, then Spools and now the new project is Split 9 Patch.
Today is the Leader & Ender Spool Review and Link Up. I started this project in October 2012. I wasn't completely faithful to the spools, I used a few other things for leader/enders. I now have 75 blocks finished, with 5 ready to sew. When they are done, they will be turned into a wall hanging.
When Bonnie posted about the new l/e project, I had to chuckle. I had been managing a bag of scraps--meaning I was cutting and organizing to get rid of the bags. (My goal is to do a bag a week until I have no more bags of scraps.) I had a stack of 2 1/2" squares and a stack of 2 1/2" half square triangle parts. Perfect. I am now ready to sew half square triangles as l/e when the spools are finished.
I'm so excited to see everyone's Spoolin' Around projects. See them here. Thanks Bonnie!
