Using selected squares from my stash as leaders and enders is a habit that I've developed....can hardly sew a seam without them, actually. Here are all 82 blocks, finished and pressed, for the Mazed Quilt by Kristy Daum. Making them as leaders/enders, while sewing on other things, was a painless way to create the parts to another quilt! I'm looking forward to sitting down and putting them all together to assemble a quilt like the one on the pattern cover. The prints are all Bohemian Rhapsody by Moda, cut from a layer cake.When I get toward the end of one leader/ender project, I almost always have another waiting on the sideline. Next up, I'll be putting together this pattern by someone many of you know, Cindy from Live a Colorful Life! Cindy gifted me with the pattern sometime back and I've been wanting to try it. The pattern calls for 5 inch squares...got that! I'll use a charm pack called Trade Winds that I've horded in my stash for about a year. I also need 2.5 inch squares and some rectangles. I decided to use some Amy Butler fabrics for those. Looks like a wild quilt, doesn't it....just my type!!
The deadline for mailing out swap blocks to the lovely ladies in my 3 X 6 Sampler Bee is quickly approaching. It was fun to pull fabrics in 6 different color combos to create Great Granny Squares for (l. to r.) Paige, Deb, Alison, Leona, Cille, and Staci. I hope they like them! I'll be making one for myself in orange and aqua. (Yes, I know that I still haven't finished my Patriotic Granny Square quilt...but have a plan in place to geterdone!...really.)
On the subject of quilt blocks....this is a great book, checked out from my public library. I may have to look for this one to add to my personal bookshelf!
I'm linking up with Live A Colorful Life Really Random Thursday.
