Sewnbyme4u - I was wondering... would you suggest that we start with “Adventures With Leaders and Enders” by Bonnie Hunter to learn the method?

I just could not get your beautiful, glowing quilt out of my mind last night!

Another question... is this particular quilt “pattern” shown in any of Bonnie Hunter’s books - or was your actual version something you put together on your own? (If it is something of your own imagination, i’m sure that Bonnie Hunter would love to see it!)

Here is the link that explains Leaders and Enders on Bonnie's blog... https://quiltville.com/leadersenderspf.html This is just a pattern I came up with to use up some of the strings of leaders and enders I had made during the course of a year or so...if you look back in the comments you will see my explanation of how I made the squares. Look close at the quilt.....the little twinkling squares are NOT sashings. They are placed diagonally on each square. When the squares are sewn together they form what appears to be sashings around the blue and black blocks. I hope this makes sense.

That is a beautiful quilt!! Glad others asked about leaders and enders and then some nice folks posted a link to it.
Not sure if I will ever do one, but gladly dream about it.

Beautiful quilt! Thank you for your how-to description. I went back to look at it again and finally "see" the pattern.

Thanks again!

That is stunning! It's a great use of "controlled scrappy" and looks like it has lights shining from it. Beautiful!

Came late to this party and your photo has disappeared. Sure would like to see it as blue is one of my favorite colors and I have heaps of it in my stash.

It’s showing now and it is beautiful, thanks. Something I could actually do even though I don’t do the leader/ender thing anymore.
