Since the design wall was up, I thought I would put up some blocks. Last Christmas, the president of my guild in Texas gave us some 2 1/2" strips of fabric. I didn't know what to do with them, so I just sewed them together and cut them into 6 1/2" rail fence blocks. Well, I didn't have enough for a whole quilt, so I dug out my box of Christmas fabric to see what I could come up with. I wanted to use fabric from stash. I used white, plain or white on white, for the middle strip and used up some small pieces of white. Then I had quite a bit of some different yardages, which I put together with white and pretty soon my design wall was full!
This is what got me going - the blue and white from my guild president.
I almost have the top together and will figure out something for borders, but there are 12 rows of 10 blocks each, which will measure 72" x 60".
As "leader/enders" I have started another quilt by Bonnie Hunter called Bow-Dacious. I have am making some progress too. The block below measures 9 1/2" square. If I follow Bonnie's directions, I would need 49 of these blocks. Along with the border, the quilt would measure 84" x 84". I don't know how big I will make it. I'm using all scraps for this so far.
These little parts of the larger block measure 4 1/2" square.
It doesn't seem like I'm spending any time at all on it using the leader/ender method.
What are you working on? I still need to do more organizing, though, so I can't do too much sewing. I thought that while the blocks are up, I might as well sew them together, right?
