    Leaders and Enders Irish Chain

    Here is my version of Bonnie Hunter's "leaders and enders" scrappy quilt. I gave this to a friend for a cottage-warming gift. She said she was thinking about hanging it on the wall and I encouraged her to go ahead and use it, as that is what I made it for.

    That's so pretty. You did such a great job. What a compliment for her to want to use it as art.

    If anybody is looking to swap some squares, the curious quilter (https://thecuriousquilter.wordpress.com) is hosting a square swap that is open right now. 1.5" - 2.5". She is into postage square quilts but I'd like to do a PSQ and then do an Irish Chain like yours.

    Aren't they the best? And "sew e-z" when you do it this way. I made a "Yank's Chain" eons ago & I wish I'd known this technique then!
