Leaders and Ender Progress for December and January

Cathy over at A Quilting Chick hosts a monthly linky to inspire and encourage those of us who start/finish projects using Bonnie Hunter's leaders and enders method of piecing.  

My current leaders and enders project, Poinsettias, started in February of 2014.  I finally finished piecing all the 4.5" inch blocks that make up the 20" poinsettia blocks in November 2015.  

So this has definitely been a long term project.  I don't have another leaders and enders in the wings just yet, so I've proceeded to assemble the big blocks.  Now there are 2 big poinsettia blocks up on the design wall.

The blocks  won't go together this way there will be pieced sashing between the blocks.  I'm hoping to finish this project up in 2016.  At some point it will probably make the jump from being the leader and ender project to being the main design wall project.  But there are still 7 blocks to assemble, so it will be a while before it gets to that point.

I couldn't imagine how these pieces were going together. Great job getting your angled corners to match up!

These are fantastic! Even next to each other they work so well. A gorgeous leader/ender project!! Thanks for sharing your progress!

Wow, that's a lot of piecing! Great blocks - what a nice Christmas quilt it will be when you get it finished.

Well done! I'm excited to see this quilt come together (slowly).
