This weekend I continued to work on my oldest UFO, the Wedding Gift Quilt. The decision has now been made that this will not be the Wedding Gift Quilt, but will henceforth be called Farmhouse Magic. It doesn't fit what I envisioned as a wedding quilt, but it does look like a farmhouse quilt. So it is NOW a farmhouse quilt.
I plan to use it either folded on the back of the love seat, or folded across the end of a bed. I think it would look nice laying across the end of a bed with a plain beige/tan comforter underneath. I could make matching pillow shams.
I have one more border to attach, and it will be ready to be quilted.
Another quilt I am working on using leaders and enders is the blue and beige quilt. I have a basket with 2 1/2 inch blue squares and 2 1/2 inch beige squares beside my machine and stick a pair under the foot at the end or beginning of a seam. Most of the time when making a quilt I just use sets from the same quilt as leaders and enders, but there are times when none can be used, so I use the blue and beige ones. I have accumulated 32 squares doing this, so far. I'm not sure how many I will need. The blue/beige squares will be alternated with beige squares which will yield the Irish Chain pattern that this quilt will eventually be.
Here is a blue/beige set coming out from under the foot, as an ender, behind two 5 inch squares being sewn together on the Farmhouse Magic quilt top.
