Joy in Leader-Endering
This quilt was a leader-ender all the way up until the border. Impulsively, I chose to use very low contrast fabrics for the nine-patch centers of the blocks instead of the high contrast the block usually shows. And I'm happy that I did that. I do like the way they look.
I wonder why it is that CWs lend themselves so beautifully to leader-endering. A couple of years ago I leader-endered a Log Cabin as well as a couple of Jewel Boxes (though the Jewel Boxes weren't pure CWs but had some other good stuff mixed in. I've still got a good-sized tub of CW scraps. And I've got a great idea involving HSTs! Soon and very soon . . .
