Let's Book It Challenge - July Update

I'm a little late getting my Let's Book It Challenge post written this month.  But at least I'm getting one written, I completely missed last month.  

So what is the Let's Book It Challenge?  It's a chance to pull out all those wonderful quilting books that sit around gathering dust and make something from them.  

I'm still working on the Poinsettia quilt from the December 2013 American Patchwork and Quilting magazine that was started earlier this year.  

I've been assembling the block sub-units as my leaders and enders project.  I added a new block to the mix this month, a set of Economy blocks.  

By Judy Blok for the December 2013 issue
of American Patchwork Times and Quilting Magazine

I still have a long way to go before I'll have all the sub-units made, but progress is progress.  If I wasn't doing this via leaders and enders, there would have been no progress. So it's all good.

Thank you for linking up - there are a lot of sub units to this one so doing them as a leader/ender project sounds like a great idea. It will all come together in due time.

That looks like a pretty quilt. I'll be looking for more on this one. I didn't get my project started this month. Just too busy in July.

Good work! Those blocks will be so much quicker to set together later.

This is going to be so worth the time and effort.....keep at it!

Fun idea!!!

I seem to never get anything prepped to do leaders & enders. Such a good way to do bonus blocks. It will be fun to see this as it progresses.

What a great idea. I should join in but honestly, I do NOT want to start any new projects! Good for you to make progress on this one.
