More Adventures With Leaders & Enders! Pre-Order Time!

moreleadersback1
***NOTE*** This GIVEAWAY has ENDED!  Congrats to our two lucky winners!!

And a GIVE-AWAY to two lucky winners!

We are COUNTING down the days until delivery!

It’s time to get really excited and ramp up the pre-orders so that you will be in the queue and among the first to have their copy shipped!

It’s been a long time putting this book together.  These units and projects were in the works right after the first printing of Adventures with Leaders & Enders and I knew I couldn't stop just because that one book was done.

Five years has passed since the release of Adventures with Leaders & Enders.  Why wait so long for a sequel?  Because the whole premise of sewing with Leaders & Enders is about building units in between the lines of chain piecing other tings, one at a time – it is not a race.

Units build on the side, one by one, and then almost like magic, there are enough units for a wall hanging, a baby quilt, a lap quilt or even a bed quilt.

With the release of MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders I am even more convinced the we can make better use of our time, our fabric, our thread just by implementing this one simple method of always leaving a pair of something underneath the presser foot when we end a line of chain piecing.

Many of these quilts you’ve seen in progress through blog posts, through magazine issues, through classes I’ve taught.

Some of them have been previous mysteries.

Some of them you have never seen before now, and they are all here in one volume for easy reference for you –a book full of gorgeous full color photographs and large close up shots so you can see just what it is that I DO use in my quilts..EVERYTHING –and you can too!

Let’s have a trunk show, shall we?

CheddarBowTies_1

Cheddar Bow-Ties was our Leader & Ender challenge 2 years ago!
This is how I finished mine..with a scrappy checkerboard border.

CheddarBowTies_D1_1

I quilted it in spider webs!

EasyStreet_1

Easy Street was Last Year’s Mystery!

All of those grey/white 4 patches were built as my Leaders & Enders while I sewed the other block units.

Leaders & Enders don’t have to even be a separate project.  They can be part of the quilt that you are already making..just set them by your machine and use them for that purpose.  It works!

EasyStreet_D1_1

Close up of fun fabrics!  I love those great black-on-whites!

FourPatchX_1

Four Patch X!

Four Patch X was a block from my Addicted to Scraps column that I just fell in love with!

FourPatchX_D1_1

Check out how the corners make a churn dash with the sashings!

LucysBaskets_1

Lucy’s Baskets!

Inspired by a photo of an antique quilt, my friend Lucy invited me to swap basket “kits” with her in an effort to include each other’s fabrics in our similar quilts made in friendship.  This worked really well, leaving the stitching to be done by each maker, since collaborative blocks rarely turn out the same size from maker to maker.

LucysBaskets_D1_1

Close up of baskets!

FriendshipCross_1 (1)

Friendship Cross

Started during the Basket Project with my friend Lucy from the Netherlands – all of the basket leftovers got cut down into block parts and assembled Leader & Ender style!

FriendshipCross_D3_1

Close up of fabrics, including some Dutch ones!

LazySunday_1

Lazy Sunday ran as a Mystery through 4 issues of Quiltmaker Magazine in 2013.

Now all the parts are here in one easy to follow pattern to help you sew up the scraps!  I used the 4 patches in the Ladder blocks as my Leaders & Enders while working on this project!

LazySunday_D3_1

Oranges and Pinks and Greens and Purples with a touch of turquoise, Oh My!

MidnightFlight_1

Midnight Flight was designed as a block for  an issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks by 100 designers.

MidnightFlight_D2_1

Simply making one block for the magazine was not enough – it demanded to be a quilt!  The 4 patches in the block quarters became Leader & Ender parts while working on the other block parts and border units for this quilt.

Narragansett_1

Narragansett Blues!

In the spring of 2012, I visited the Ninigret Quilters of Rhode Island and spent a bit of time exploring the local beauty around Narragansett Bay.  In October of 2012, I was mourning the devastation that befell beautiful Narragansett in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. 

Narragansett_D3_1

Close up of Narragansett Blues

As the hurricane raged, I sewed and sewed using a box of Leader & Ender 4 patches that were waiting without a project to use them up.  Finally I ended up with this quilt.  I entitled it simply Naarragansett Blues.  The blue matched my mood – the blue in the morning sky brings hope in the new day.

ScrapCrystals1

Scrap Crystals!

A box of blue and neutral bonus triangles (Half-square triangles saved from other projects), a bin of 2” cut squares and a desire to sew on my 1911 treadle machine—That’s all it took for me to start building simple broken dishes units as Leaders & Enders in between the lines of other projects.

ScrapCrystals_D1_1

This block was featured in a past issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks, and now the full quilt pattern is here in More Adventures with Leaders & Enders!

SpoolinAround_1

Spoolin’ Around!

Spoolin’ Around was our Leader & Ender challenge a couple of years ago, and you saw my spools as I was making them.  Here is the result of what they turned into!

SpoolinAround_D3_1

SO many fabrics came from YOU as you sent me pieces in envelopes to add your scraps to mine.  I love this quilt!

TexasTumble_1

Texas Tumbleweeds was a mystery I taught in Plano, Texas and now it is in More Adventures with Leaders & Enders as a regular pattern!

TexasTumble_D3_1

Can you mix batiks with regular cottons? Yes you can!

I used the 4 patches in the center of the ladder block as my Leaders & Enders during the making of this quilt.  It’s one of my favorites in the book!

WinstonWays_1

Winston Ways, Named after my adopted home town of Winston Salem, NC!

This block was also featured in a past 100 blocks issue, and now the full quilt pattern is here for you!

WinstonWays_D1_1

Can you guess what THESE 4 patches were??

  34. Looks like another great book! A funny for you--at my guild meeting yesterday another member had a big tub of scraps she was giving away, so of course, I brought some home. As my daughter and I were going through them afterwards, she kept finding pieces that had been folded over and sewn on and she couldn't understand why anyone would do that. Thanks to you and your leaders and enders I always have a small unit under the foot rather than a folded scrap and that's all she knows!

  159. I've been living by the "leaders/enders way since knowing about them from you years ago. I had a new quilter watching me sew one time and finally she said "why do you do that"? I explained somewhat but maybe not enough because later on that day I heard her ask another lady why she was doing it like me. Then; she got it!! It's a good thing.

  170. Oh, my gosh, I am drooling! Lazy Sunday and 4-Patch X seem to be my favorite. Do you think 2 leaders and enders projects are too many to have by your machine while you are sewing on another few projects? Thanks, Bonnie, for putting together another great book.
