Description

I had small bits of 30's print fabric that I used to make several doll quilts. I started with 2 1/2 inch square and made 1/2 square triangles. What I didn't realize was how much fabric I really had and made several quilts, not just one as I intended. I used Bonnie Hunter's idea of having pieces ready to use as "leaders and enders" to get something pieced while working on something else. I feel as though these are "bonus" quilts. They were pieced without any extra effort and I used smaller pieces that were left over from other projects. 

The sizes vary from 15 x 15 to 16 x 18.

They are the sweetest little quilts! Gotta love the idea of being bonuses!

These are so cute. I am working on a pinwheel doll quilt for my niece. Your quilts have given me some inspiration to get them done sooner rather than later.

These quilts are gorgeous. What an inspiration,

Minka

Btw, what are leaders and Enders?

Minka and Sewexcited, I love the doll quilt and Bonnie Hunter's idea.
When you chain piece, you usually use a piece of fabric at the end rather than pulling thread. Usually we used the same piece of fabric over and over. Bonnie Hunter revolutionized this by suggesting to have something to piece and do one piece to start, the leader, and one to stop, the ender. Once I heard it, it was so obvious that I couldn't believe I had had to be told.
