Welcome to Stitched in Layers

Hoping this will be a place where I can share what I love – Quilts and quilting!  Hope you enjoy what I have to show and what I might have to say.  Thank you to my daughter Anne who encouraged and enabled this beginning!

This was a Leader Ender Project that began last year to use some of the those tiny Moda squares (Yellow and Blue, a perpetual favorite). And to try a “speedy” four patch stitching technique I found on the web.  Will have to see if I can find it again! Blue and Yellow Leader Ender

Slowly but surely It became and obsession to finish them all!  I used up all the scrap yellow I had on had (well not all of it – I had so much) for the setting squares.  And to remember how to make setting triangles!Blue and Yellow Leader Ender 2I used up even more yellow in a pieced a border!  Which I liked okay at the time.  It has hung in the basement (my long arm space) for months now waiting to be quilted.Blue and Yellow Leader Ender 3  Thankfully I never got to quilting because as I was cleaning out my sewing room (An annual January event) I found these Mark Lipinski fabrics (fat quarters) that I had stashed and thought they would might be a better fit.  Love the result…Blue and Yellow 4 Patch..now to stitch it in layers!
