Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Do you ever make leader and ender quilts? Do you use scraps or coordinate the fabrics? I have done both. I am getting ready to start a new one and I think all this recent discussion on scrap bins (thank you Beth :)) is inspiring me to do a scrappy one this time.
I would love to know what other quilters do for leader and ender quilts.
If you do not know what I mean, or if you have not tried it, check out this link http://quiltville.com/leadersenders.shtml
Glad I could be such an inspiration and encourager to use up those scraps. I have several starts apparently from looking thru my stuff wherein I sewed up the cut off pieces from flying geese and snow ball blocks. I could sew them together and make a couple miniature quilts without a problem. It is the squaring up of the hst that take the time.
On another note, over in the Quilting Bee discussions, I am going to start up a scrap challenge to use those scraps.
I did see the scrap challenge and am waiting for the details. I need to get mine organized as my granddaughter decided the overflow in the bin is hers to throw around the house LOL
Here is a link for a way to organize your scraps. Also you can use the silverware drawers you find at garage sales.
Thanks for the link. I also have the Deloa Jones book Scraps Organized to Perfection. It has great tips as well.
Here is a Lego Scrap quilt from Lazy Gal Quilting.
If that is not mind boggling.
Makes me dizzy LOL
