This week for "Whatcha Working On Wednesday", I have been working on a baby boy scrap quilt. This has been a work in progress for quite some time. This quilt pattern is called "String X" and it is a perfect pattern for using the "Leaders and Enders" system. You can find both the pattern and the Leaders and Enders System on the Quiltville Site HERE.
I decided it was time to actually finish a quilt! So I am concentrating on this one project until it is finished... at least that is the plan of the moment!
What I love about scrap quilts:
1. Each square is different, so each quilt is unique.
2. I can see bits and pieces of many other projects that have been completed in the past. Each one is another memory quilt and has a story or many stories.
3. It uses up small scraps or pieces of clothing that I have saved. This is very economical.
4. Using so many different pieces of fabric keeps the project interesting while I am working on it. If each square is the same, the sewing can get monotonous!
These are four of the large squares I have finished. Each of these contain four smaller squares.
Some more squares in progress:
These will have white triangles sewn on the side to make a small square. Then four of these will be sewn together to make a large square.
