Since the beginning of the year, my leader/ender project in between other projects has been making bowtie blocks in the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. (If you aren't familiar with the concept of leaders and enders, check out this post by Bonnie Hunter.)
My goal has been to make at least one block per day for the whole year. I have actually been managing to produce 36 each month. The other day I had a chunk of time available for stitching and wanted to work on something simple that was already prepped. Fortunately, I had my bowtie parts all cut out and waiting beside my machine.
I finished stitching up the remaining medium and dark blue bowties for July. These blocks will finish at 4" square. I'm not sure what I will use as a leader/ender for the rest of the month, but there must be something hiding in my collection of projects.
Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge every Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday.
