Leaders and Enders Spool quilt!
A couple years ago, I made this spool quilt. Honestly, I had the best intentions of making a leader and ender quilt...but!
You know how those leaders and enders take hold and make noise and want to be the life of the party!! LOL! The main focus!! I enjoyed hand quilting this quilt, and it is displayed in my living room. A dear friend exchanged some of these little spool blocks with me...thanks Joan!
I ended up with a plain border on my Lisa's flower garden quilt. I made several attempts at a pieced border, and fussed and fretted...and this fabric won out. I plan on hand quilting this one too.
Do you like these little houses? This pattern is by Pam Buda. I love her designs!!
To celebrate this day (it is Wednesday...and there is no other reason! Seize the day!), I am giving away this kit to make this pretty house quilt. Just leave me a comment, and I will draw for it next week.
