Seriously, if I just needed blues or greens, I would have been ready to go in a month as I cut a whole lot of fabric!!!! But there are just some hues of colors (like that gold one on the bottom) that you don't cut a lot of. So last week I saw all these squares sitting on my desk and I thought, "why in the world am I still waiting to start this project on a few squares." I pulled out the scrap drawer and after a bit of digging, found the colors I needed to finish the few piles of missing squares. And TaDa!! Bring on the Leader and Ender stitching!!!
And after I had made everything into 2 patches, I figured I might as well continue on with the block. So I added a third patch onto the two patches for the corners and then it was just sewing the Three Patches into the Corner Units and the 2 Patches into the Side Units. And then just finish the block. I did all of this still as Leader and Enders. This is a little different for me as I would normally do all the two patches for all 16 blocks, but I am thinking where this block has a few more "moving pieces" it makes it easier to do one block at a time. And I have to say, it sure makes the process more fun to have little finishes along the way. 1 down and 15 to go!!! (You knew I would start with the purple one ;)
So I am hoping to share more Scraptastic Stars blocks over the next few months. I am just loving getting back into the swing of Leader and Enders and I can't believe I let a whole year go by without these "free" quilt blocks :) I think it is a good lesson for me to remember, just stop and cut so you can sew!!!!
How about you . . . do you have a Leader and Ender project that you are working on???
