Design Wall Monday - August 29th

Not much of a change on the design wall again this week.  The final borders were added to Flurry on Friday.  It doesn't look much different then last week. 


I started piecing the back yesterday, so maybe this one will be ready to go off for quilting next week. 

All the blocks for the yellow and purple scrap quilt (pattern by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolf)  were laid out on the design floor in the library.  This is the final layout. 


Since this had been my leaders and enders project, I'm going to keep on that path and sew the blocks together as I work on my other projects.  The first row of blocks have been squared up and lined up on the design wall ready to go when I start assembling the back for Flurry.   I need to come up with a new leaders and enders project.  I finished up Flurry without any "leader" blocks and it felt weird.  Does that mean I'm addicted to leaders and enders?   

Check out Judy's Patchwork Times to see what else is up on design walls across blog land.

  2. Love the layout for the purple/yellow blocks! The light is rippling across the quilt top.
    Yes...I think you are addicted to the leader/ender! How about a 36 patch leader/ender?? (I'm loving it!)

  4. I agree with Kathy -- those purple and yellows are fabulous laid out that way. And, I too seem to be addicted to Leaders and Enders. When I just push a piece of "scratch" fabric under to keep the threads engaged I feel like I am missing something. I've got the same question -- what to do as my next leader and ender? Decisions, decisions!

  15. You're a true l-e fan for sure, Kate! But looking at your fantastic results, there's no arguing with that dedication :) Hope you find a good one for the next l-e project!

  16. It is definitely possible to be addicted to Leaders/enders. I know because I am! It feels so strange and wasteful to just pull pieces out of the machine and cut them leaving long tails of thread. LOL. Bonnie had had quite an effect on us.
