Leader and enders coming to a close.

Hurrah!!  My 2021 leader and ender quilt is in one piece!!  Lots of 2.5-inch scraps in this quilt.  It is very busy!!! I chose the blue sashing to try and calm it down a little bit.  



I plan on a blue border, just a small one.  I am delighted to get to this point!  Old time scrappy quilts are my favorite.




 You cannot see him well, but on the crook of this tree is a squirrel taking a nap.  He as just darling.  and in big news!  We got a sprinkle of rain yesterday!  Amazing!!!

Your quilt looks so cozy. I too love scrappy quilts the best. Are you doing this years Leader and Ender of Bonnie’s? I am as I had a lot of 1 1/2” strips cut when you did your log cabin quilt a- long. Kathy

I do like the blue sashing. It was so hot here the last few days that one of our squirrels was splayed out on our porch (in the shade) and also on the big slab stone out front. So funny to watch him as he was sleeping!

Your leader and ender project is just darling, I love it! I need to be more organised and have a leader and ender project for myself.
Have a great weekend

Your L-E quilt is positively fabulous; what a great feeling that is to have it at the official flimsy stage! Congratulations, Julie, well done! :)

Congrats on getting your leader ender project into a quilt top! I'm still making blocks here and there at a snail's pace.
