Since finishing the Sweet Sixteen top, I have been contemplating my next leader-ender idea. To qualify (for me) it needs to use small squares (mostly), use a lot of pieces, and be mostly repetitive.
Well, I believe I have found the idea. I call it Irish Stars.
It is a triple Irish chain alternating with a sort of floating star block. You can’t see the pattern very well yet, but with a few more blocks the “chain” effect should show up more strongly.
Maybe I have found two ideas. Is anyone interested in leader-ender-ing along with me? I don’t mean a specific number of blocks in a specific period of time. For some of you it might be your first leader-ender. Some will make many blocks and a large quilt. Some will make smaller blocks. We could do it using either 1-1/2″, 2″, or 2-1/2″ squares.
Mine uses 1-1/2″ squares, but I might not be right in the head.
Anyway, think about it, let me know, and maybe we’ll start officially sometime next week or so. I’ll need to write block tutorials and such and you’ll need to start gathering (and maybe cutting) scraps.
What do you think?
