Default Leader Ender

What are you doing for leader enders? My current leader ender are these neutral 4 patches.

Here's the picture! I'm still getting accustomed to this on my phone!

No leader-enders right now. I'm doing some scrap processing to eventually make another coin quilt. So I have strips EVERYWHERE. I've cut some spot blocks for later and charms for eventual 4 patches. My sewing space is a bit of a disaster right now so it needs a deep clean and organize after this scrap project.

What is your plan for the four patches? I'm cleaning and reorganizing my sewing room right now and refolding my fabric so no leader ender project right now.

Nothing at the moment, but you did get me thinking of all of the little 2.5s that I have. I could be making something with them while creating my other projects. Thanks for the reminder!

I just started doing leader/Enders with 2.5. I ended up using a strip of them to piece together a quilt back. I also enjoy making quilted bags so I was thinking of using them for that.

I am doing a Lori Holt’s Twinkle Star blocks for leader/enders but I always have a bin of 2.5 inch squares for backup.

Nothing right now, but you’ve got me thinking about using up the drawer full of 2” squares...

I'm not doing anything with leaders/enders right now, but I simply throw them in the drawer that I leave partially open and when it gets filled, then I make another quilt. I've made several quilts with leaders/enders.

I'm happier with a "spider" one piece of leader I use over and over (the fabric is the body, the threads are the spider legs).

My machine starts with a default of small stitches -- which is good sometimes but I don't always want so I prefer to start on the spider. If I used the leader system, my quirks and twitches set in and I'd want a leader for the leader....

It's a great concept though. We all work in different ways.
