I'm making my BaD blocks as my "leaders and enders" this weekend. Bonnie Hunter coined the term "Leaders and Enders" for this method.
Many quilters sew onto a scrap of fabric at the end of a row of chain piecing. I've heard it called a "peanut" or the "two quilts at once" method. Rather than just cutting your thread, or sewing onto a scrap of fabric, keep a stack of quilt squares next to your machine and stitch two together at the end of each seam on your main quilt. It's amazing how fast a "block a day" is made using Bonnie's clever idea!
In fact, Bonnie has several books that celebrate her method. Here is my favorite:
If your LQS doesn't stock Bonnie's books, you can order a copy here.
I'm keeping up with my daily blocks, here are the 11 I've finished so far:
I can't wait to see what everyone makes BaD!
