Do you follow Bonnie Hunter's blog? She is such a busy lady - travels all over the world teaching, offers lots of free patterns, a mystery quilt that is always awesome each year, and on and on. She also puts a leader/ender challenge out to everyone each summer. Three years ago the block was bow ties. I have never been a big fan of bow tie blocks, but for some reason it seemed like a good idea! Honestly, I don't work on these very often (obviously, or this would have been done 2 or 3 years ago!) and I don't have much opportunity to use leaders and enders, because I'm usually working on jewelry and it just doesn't work for that. I decided to start laying out some of the blocks to see what colors I still need. I have no idea what size this is going to be, but I have almost 900 three inch blocks made so far. That sounds like a lot, but what you see here is 144 blocks!
You will have to turn your head for this one, it doesn't seem to want to cooperate. I've made tons of kitty pendants lately - these went with me to Kansas last week, and not very many came home, so I'm back to making kitties again.
I'm going to have a new, fun item to show you soon (if you were in my Charming club, you got to see it early!) - will post a picture as soon as they get here.
Have a great weekend!
