I’ve been a busy gal juggling all the things happening around here. Last week we sent out a magazine quilt. We put together a free project. We did lots of work on the book. We also started working on a new big project.
In between it all I’ve started a new quilt but while I sew on that…I’ve been sewing a few of my lozenges blocks too. I am making some progress at getting them together.
Mine is 30 wide and so far, 6 rows together. I have a couple more rows started so it’s destine to grow. My plans is to make it 90″ x 90″ or so. That would make me about 1/3 of the way done. That’s pretty good.
I always love projects that seem to come together on their own. I have never sat down and worked a whole day on this. For the most part, it’s been leader and ender style but occasionally there are evenings that I just need a little therapy sewing and end up sewing on it for 20 minutes.
The project all started with Bonnie Hunter’s Lozenges Leader and Ender Challenge. If you are looking for a pattern or more info on that, you can find it here.
I have to admit, I am very tempted to just start working on this full and getting done with it. I seem to have that problem with leader and ender projects. I go along great having them for leaders and enders and then I just throw in the towel and it becomes my main project. That’s okay though…I’m happy with a finished quilt no matter how it comes about.
I am starting to try to think of what might be my next leader and ender project….What are all of you working on??

I am working on Anne Wiens Thrifty Quilter system. Have many pieces cut, Lots of sampler blocks made and a couple of quilt tops almost ready for quilting. I can be sooo tempting to jump in and just sew all day, as I did at a retreat…..That’s it I need another retreat!
I’m just working on split 9 patch blocks, so I’m doing some half square triangles as leader/enders. Your lozenges quilt is turning out great…and I see it has pup approval!
What size do you intend to make your ‘lozenges’ quilt?
I didn’t start this L/E quilt. I’ll wait for Bonnie’s Mystery and use those parts as L/E with my BOM blocks. OR Vice Versa.
This quilt is SEW on my TO DO LIST!! I have the pattern printed off and pinned on my design board so that I see it everyday!! I love the scrappiness of it!
I’ve been trying to decide the same thing. I’m almost done with all 182 blocks of the split nine-patch leader ender so that is about done and I need another. I’m really leaning towards a simple 36-patch block and use up a bunch of scrap squares but not too sure.
I didn’t start the lozenge quilt, but yours looks great! I’m working on two customer quilts that I just want done and out of here!!
Loving it and it really motivates me to start putting mine together..I have about 40 left to make but I am about ready to put them together!
Love your lozenge quilt. I received my Quiltmaker mag in the mail today. Love the two quilts. You girls rock.
Jo –Glad to see the lozenges project. Working on mine also very slow going for me. Looking at yours now I really want to just sew lozenges. Thanks for sharing.
Love your lozenge quilt. I’m a real sucker for the old-fashioned look. If you don’t know what to make for your next leader/ender project you could always just sew 4-patches out of 2″ or 2 1/2″ squares and decide later what to make them into.
