After finishing my table runner, I really want to finish a bed quilt. And while I’m very excited about Bonnie’s mystery, and I’m close to finishing the units for it, I’m pretty set on finishing the first quilt I started before I finish any others. So I’m plugging away just as fast as I can on my sister’s choice quilt. Last week, I managed to make 16 blocks for it!
I certainly like some of the blocks much more than others. I’m in love with some of the fabrics, but not so much with others. However, I’m thinking that they will all play well together in the overall scrappiness of the whole quilt. The more blocks I make, the more I think that everything will fit in somewhere. I do still have my favorites, though. These three are my favorites from last week’s batch:
While I’ve been working on the sister’s choice blocks, I’ve been sewing pairs of flying geese for Easy Street as my leaders and enders. This is my first time using the leaders and enders method, and I’m loving it. I really enjoy watching finished units stack up without any extra effort. It is completely worth the little bit of extra preparation time that it takes to get leaders and enders ready to go. It will require some discipline to make sure that I always have leaders and enders on hand, but I’m definitely going to work towards always quilting that way.
