Jo's Quiltville UFO and Cathy's Leaders and Enders Link-Up!

 I decided to finish up my leaders and lozenges for Jo's Country Junctions' Quiltville UFO Link-up.  Here it is growing.  I started out sewing rows of 15 and it wasn't until I got to the second picture point that I realized I should have been sewing fifteen in the other direction!  So I had to put them together the long way so I wouldn't have the world's longest, narrow quilt!


 I am super happy with how it came out--I tried to be really random since I didn't have a design wall to use and had all my colors stacked and pinned by color and alternating black and white corners.  While I was making the lozenges I was concerned I would wind up with too many black corners or white corners so that is why I did it that way.  What I learned is that I should have pinned 10 black corners then 10 white corners...much easier to sort to randomize the colors!  Live and learn.  It really was fun and everyone at quilt camp thought it looked great.
Linking up with Jo's Country Junction!  I might try to finish up the other little Quiltville quilt I started at camp so I can link up next week too!
I am also linking up with Cathy over at A Quilting Chick for her first Leaders and Enders link up!  I am looking for new leader/ender ideas so I will be checking back on her blog to see what others are doing.  I always just follow along with Bonnie but I actually got ahead of her (imagine that) so I may have some time to do one of my own choosing before she announces the next one!  If you want to know more about Leaders and Enders, or want the free pattern for lozenges check out Quiltville!

This leader/ender project wasn't my favorite. Not because I don't like the quilt. I do like the quilt. I just wasn't that excited by sewing all those tiny little corners onto rectangles. You did a good job and it looks great!
