I thought that I would share the video we did yesterday on leaders and enders. I have been using 2" squares for about 9 years or so as my leaders and enders and I have done so many projects with them. If you would like to see the method in a nutshell you can see it in this post from 2006. I absolutely love how you get a project from basically nothing with them! My video features the 2" square Accuquilt Go! die but you can definitely cut these by hand. I cut by hand for years before I got this die.
When I teach classes I frequently show my leaders and enders method so I thought that making a video would be a great idea since so many people have not yet heard of this great method. Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville has made this method pretty famous in the quilting world but believe it or not I heard about this method years before from a fellow quilter and just fell in love with it! Bonnie even has a book out on leaders and enders which is wonderful and well worth checking out if you're interested. She uses many different shapes and sizes as leaders and enders; but, I guess I just love my 2" squares!
So, have you made any leaders and enders projects? If you have I would love to see them - maybe you could share them on my Facebook page?
