I really meant to begin quilting my Juicy Fruit quilt yesterday, but it was just too cold to be in the basement where my machine is, I decided. So, instead, I began putting together the rows to my latest Free Quilt-- such scrappy goodness!I began sewing 2.5 inch squares together as leader/enders in a light/dark pattern in January 2014. Assembling them into rows of 44 squares each, I finally have enough for a large bed quilt.
Here's what a fourth of the 2112 squares looks like all sewn together into colorful fun!! I plan to sew twelve rows together at a time and then assemble the whole quilt from there.
There's nothing boring about this type of simple quilt. For the postage stamp quilt, Ambrosia, that I did a few years ago, I used a white square for every other patch. It's still one of my favorite quilts and I love to just stare at it!
I think that I could stare at this one forever, too. But, I guess I better be making plans for my next leader/ender quilt instead! I've got an idea....
