My Halloween postage stamp quilt is finally done!!

I named it “Wicked Bits”!! Woo hoo!

I think this type of quilt with zillions of tiny pieces (1,443 to be exact), is perfect to make as a leader/ender project.

Bonnie Hunter’s term for having a stack of little precut squares by your machine at all times and using two of them right sides together in between piecing parts of your current project.

I have always called the little scrap pieces of fabric I used between piecing “tweeners” and they were just thrown away when they were covered in thread…but Bonnie calls them Leaders and Enders and has written two books about them!!

I am thrilled that I finished this quilt!!  Can’t wait to put it our next month!!  YAY!

It was a great way to use up all those old tiny Halloween scraps!!

  19. Your Halloween quilt turned out wonderful! I can't believe how many squares it took -- well, actually I can believe it, but I'm astonished at how many it took. I need to be curled up and snoozing like Yogi.
