Well, my leaders/enders project a la Bonnie Hunter is finally done and is my finish for October! I believe I started this project (the 25 patches) in late 2005 or early 2006. Since I truly only sewed on this as a leaders and enders project it took a long time! I made the hour glass blocks in 2007 and put the body of the quilt together last year. This year I finally got to the borders and quilting and am really happy with this one! For quilting, I just did straight lines in the center and feathers through 2 borders. It is a large quilt (it's nickname is The Beast) measuring in at 96" square and is the largest quilt I've made. Trying to do more than the straight quilting in the center did not appeal to me as I quilt on a regular home machine. Plus I really like the way the straight lines highlight the geometrics of this quilt. For the borders, I drew the spine of the feather and freehanded the rest.
Now it's on to my November project. It is another top that stopped short of getting its borders. Good news is that it is fall fabrics so it will be fun to work on this time of the year and it's much smaller than this one was so it should go fast!
Hope you are working on something that inspires you!
"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection."
