I am having a Quiltville Saturday! I am almost to the end of my Split 9 Patch leader and ender blocks. When I finally decided on a setting, I needed to make 30 more blocks. I am down to the final 20 so I am changing this over to my main project.
I lay out my blocks on mini design boards. (Learn about them here at Bee In My Bonnet-mine are not as fancy as Lori's.) I am using my new leader and ender project as I sew these blocks together. I lay out 5 blocks and sew them together, then lay out 5 more. It's nice to have them stacked right by the machine ready to pick up and sew.
Each 9 patch block needs 4 L/Es--2 patches from a bin full of 1 1/2" squares from one of Subee's swaps. As soon as I browsed Bonnie Hunter's new book, More Adventures with Leaders and Enders, I knew which quilt would be my new L/E project. I'm making Narragansett Blues only my quilt will be made with 1 1/2" squares and use up a whole bunch of 2 1/2" strips also from a Subee swap.
I love a good Saturday sew day!
