Leader and Enders step 2

I know I'm a week late with this post.  But the tsunami set me back a little.  And while I'm still behind in making all my little four patches.  I don't want to keep anyone waiting if they are ready to go on.  Besides I hope to catch up soon.  So here is the next step.
Take  your 224 2 1/2" four patches from step one.
Cut 224- 2 1/2" squares of medium to dark scraps.

Sew a 2 1/2" four patch to a 2 1/2" square making sure that each time your chain squrares ( the black ones here) are going the same way.  This important as your chain will be broken in your quilt if you don't.  Do this with the remaining four patches and 2 1/2" squares.

Next sew the units you made above together to create the chain though your new four patch.  Contiue making chain four patches with your remaining units.

With the holidays coming and all the hustle and bustle that comes with them, I'll be waiting until the first of January to post the next step.  Happy Sewing!

  2. Thanks Em! 8-)
    I'm going to start cutting/preparing to make one of these. I'll stitch the pieces between other projects, so it will take a bit of time for a finished top from me...
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I am behind on this project... I'm not doing it the Leaders/Enders way either. I'm just cutting and stitching :-) Maybe I'll have some time to catch up on it in the upcoming weekends (hopefully)
