Hello to everyone!!  Remember Bonnie Hunter's leader and ender quilt from last year?  The fishie blocks?  

Quiltville's Quips & Snips!!: July 2021 Leader & Ender Challenge: FISH SCHOOL!



Well, she has just recently announced her NEW one!  I better get cracking on finishing the old one!!  

I cut all the remaining required blocks today.  Hurrah!!  This will be fun sewing!!!  I used a paper plate and pinned the pieces for each block together.  I often run and sweep, sew a block, vacuum, sew a block, fold laundry, sew a block...you get it!  I get a lot done if the pieces are all ready to sew.  Just kind of game I play to make it all fun.  







Is this not the cutest panel in all of the world?  I was recently gifted a box of NURSE fabrics, from a very kind blogger! I am so excited to make something of this!  The wheels are turned...squeak!  Thank you so much!



Quiltville's Quips & Snips!!: Leader & Ender Challenge 1! Triple Treat!


I could not resist making a sample block of the new leader and ender pattern.  I am going a different color way and making a quilt of valor.  This one goes to the quilt guild, and they take them to the place that distributes the quilts to veterans.




 I got most of it cut out.  Surprisingly, I did not have many dark blues.  But I scraped it out, LOL!!!

I looked in the blue bin, the reproduction bin, and the red, white and blue bin.  I had just enough variety!




Hope you are doing fantastic!

The fish blocks are great. You did a nice job. The new leader-ender is much more complicated. Glad you could find enough blues.

Now I really feel like a slug! Gladys would make the fish blocks faster than I have! They look great.

I hadn't checked out the newest Leander-Ender challenge since I'm still back on the year before last's (or was it two?) Churn Dash. My blocks were really turning out cute and for some unknown reason I abandoned it and haven't looked back. Sigh. This Triple Treat challenge is great. Bravo to you for making it into a QOV! I love that nurse panel, just perfect for you! Hugs~

I really like the layout of your fish blocks!
That is a very fun panel of nurses.
Your idea to use the leader/ender to make a Quilt of Valor is perfect! Good choice!

OK! I have scraps and I love your fish quilt blocks. Especially the setting with the sashing to break them up! And I love the new one. So I just may get some scraps out and play! Mine won't be as colorful as yours, but I will try! LOL

Great progress on all fronts! You may yet win this war with fabrics and tame them into quilts. (I just finished reading a book telling of the struggles of a family in Poland in WWII so it is coloring the way I write.)
