Leader-ender denim

I have been  quietly working on a Leader Ender quilt.  When you begin a chain of piecing and you end chain of piecing, it is best to use a scrap of fabric.  When it sewn that way, there is no thread waste on the chain.  These scraps are called leader enders.  So instead of just using a scrap of fabric, someone had the idea to cut blocks and assemble them into quilts.  These are usually simple quilts because they are made in between. I got the idea from Deanna over at Wedding Dress Blue. So while I was cutting out the circle denim quilt, I cut these squares with the scraps.  I have been sewing them together when ever I piece and this is what I have so far.  T

  1. It might be a quiet start, but it will lead to a beautiful finish. What a nice way to use scraps of fabric, thread and time.

    • It’s coming together nicely. Thanks for the idea!
