Let's Book It Challenge - October Update

Hard to believe it's almost the end of the month already and time to report on the progress with all the fun challenges I took on this year.  Today it's the progress for the Let's Book It Challenge.

With all the quilting books lined up in my bookcase,  this challenge just made sense.  Dust off a book or one of those million quilt magazines stacked on top of the bookcase, find a pattern and make it.  So far there is only one project to show for my participation in this challenge, Poinsettias from the December 2013 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.

This has been my leaders and enders project for 2014.  The blocks and pieced sashing are made from 6 smaller units.  I did finally get enough of the smaller pieces made to at least see how my fabrics work in the block. 

With the end of the year looming it seemed to be a good time to take stock of where things are.

Looks like this will be my enders and leaders project for a while longer.

You are coming along on it though and as long as you are enjoying the journey with this quilt, that's what matters. I think it is a very interesting pattern and you are going to have a stunning quilt when all is said and done.

This is such a pretty quilt. Can't wait to see it finished.

The fabrics you've got going on there are beautiful. It doesnt matter how long it takes so long as you're working towards a finish.

Looks like it will all be worth it in the end. Lovely fabrics.

That's going to be a gorgeous quilt. I never thought of doing a non-scrappy quilt as a leader & ender. Great idea.

How do you keep up with all your challenges?

Beautiful quilt! And you have almost half of the units finished. The end is in sight, and if you keep it as a leader/ender, it'll be complete before you know.
