I love it when my floor looks like this, it means I've been busy cutting and getting lots done. You'd think I could take a bit of extra time and make sure the offcuts hit the bin, but I get carried away and just fling them off the edge of the table. Easy enough to pick it all up later when I've calmed down.

This is the other project I completed to the border stage. This is going to be a Big quilt, but I had such fun making the blocks I couldn't stop. I still don't think I've finished with them, even though there are forty-two in this top.
I do love brown and red together, mmm.Remember my Leader- Ender project that I said I wouldn't rush ahead with? I've been good and plugging away, but inspired with my other progress I decided to lay it out and see how far I'd got.

STILL not enough for a top, let alone one the size that Bonnie does. Sometimes I use parts of the main project as Leader-Enders, so that can cut down how much I get done on this, but I thought I was nearly done here. I need another ten or twelve sections I estimate, so it's not going to finish any time soon unless I break my vow and concentrate on this alone. Which is very tempting at the moment...

The red & tan quilt top is a winner! Your blocks are pieced so well. What is the name of the block pattern?

I love brown and red also. This is a wonderful quilt. And your leader-ender quilt might hook me into doing L&Es. Love the pink centers.

The brown and red looks fabulous! As for the fling: how about taping a plastic bad to your cutting surface and just swishing it in there?

The floral and red quilt top looks just lovely - such a pretty block. And of course I'm just loving your leader and ender project - good for you for not letting it bully you into being a 'main' project.

Wow, your reds are wonderful! Love all those little trimmings. Your leaders and enders are wonderful too...did you see Bonnie's new book? All about leaders and enders!
