Leaders and Enders, Blue and Beige, Irish Chain Quilt

I must give this quilt a name! But, for now this is the blue and beige leaders and enders Irish Chain quilt I have been working on while working on other projects. At some point a leaders and enders quilt must become the main quilt you are working on and that time is almost here!

Here are the blocks completed so far laid out on a bed.



These are 2 1/2 inch blocks I have laid out beside my sewing machine to use as leaders and enders.



Sets of three blocks already sewn together waiting to become nine patches as leaders and enders.



My very lofty goal is to complete one quilt each month and I hope to complete this one for March. If I work really hard I may be able to complete a baby girl's quilt for my soon to be born great niece, as well.

Blue and Cream.... beautiful! I love those colors together. The little quilt I posted about is made in nine patch blocks and big squares like that, too. Very simple to do and now I want to make one out of scraps.

Love how you are so organized and have the pieces ready and waiting, that certainly took time to get prepared. I really love the concept and like many things.....one of these days I'll be that prepared for a leader and ender! Have a great weekend in your sewing room, love the colors in your irish chain.

You are so very organized. Wish I could say I was the same but it woldn't be true. I love the blue and cream. It's going to make a beautiful quilt.

Beautiful! I need to start a project like that. Scraps of fabric + scraps of time = a totally FREE QUILT!
