Design Wall Monday: preview 2 and L&E

Progress from the previous post:  the I Spy bear paw blocks and the letters are assembled, with a correction to the spelling of the name.  (Glad to have that before proceeding!)

["Sophie/Sophia" means wisdom and "Anne/Ann" means grace.]

 I've gone back to 1.5" "postage stamps"  for leaders and enders.  This is one of Bonnie Hunter's "Addicted to Scraps" blocks in Quiltmaker.  She wrote that she planned assemble the blocks with cornerstones and sashing to create a Shoofly secondary design, so that's what I'm aiming for.

  2. Cute idea for a special girl. I am also a Bonnie Hunter fan. My sewing room is much easier since I adopted her stash users' system, and I've made many quilts from fabric that went unloved before. DH threatened to throw out the "over 10 years" accumulation of scraps, but now they make happy quilts instead!

  10. What a fun scrappy Eye-spy. I like the use of HSTs in it very much. I will have to add Bonnie's scrap block to my list of Leaders n' enders (will need a new one soon). I didn't think of how they would look joined and really like the secondary shoo-fly pattern you've made.
