I am still trying to work out a workflow for the leader ender project from quiltville - go fish. It seems difficult to isolate what part is leader/ender. I guess there are just several stops along the way that can be used that way. If I used sewing the hsts as the leader/ ender, I would never sew enough for a quilt.
First, I cut strips from scraps that are 2 1/2 x 9 1/2. I can get all the hsts for 2 from that piece later. I have cut a few by color with the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. Next, I cut hsts for awhile until I become bored with that. Then, I will sew willy nilly hsts. I trim, iron, and have them by the machine. At this point, I will make webbed sets as the leader/ender for other projects. I have a stack of 2 1/2 inch squares for this part. I make sure I do the whole 4 parts for one fish. I sew top row then second row without breaking thread.
I make a stack of these to use as the next stage of leader /enders
