My leader/ender project, when I remember to stitch them and have pinned enough ahead, are these 1½" squares, stitched into 4-patch blocks.
They're all cut from leftover bits of fabric after cutting larger blocks.
Two blocks sewn together, light and bright, all in autumn-like colors - rich reds, oranges, golds, a variety of greens, teals/blues, browns, etc..
What will these leader/ender four-patch blocks become?
They could become quadruple 4-patch blocks,
or nine-patch blocks.
or four-patches on-point with the bright color vertical.
Or they could become 4- or 9-patch blocks set in the middle of four triangles.
Then again, maybe they could be used in larger blocks, like this star block,
or even in a Burgoyne Surrounded. And I know there are plenty of other blocks that use 4- or 9-patch blocks.
I know I need to make many, many more before I'll enough for anything but a little quilt. Sometimes it's great to just sit and mindlessly sew, without having to think about the placement as I do when making a more complicated block. These work as leaders/enders or for that mindless sewing. Some day I'll have enough to make a quilt!
The baby quilt from my ScrapHappy Day post in February is coming along really well.
