Easy Street

I have finished piecing the blocks for Easy is BIG...had to have my son hang it so I could take a picture. Will add borders and hopefully quilt it next week. This is my second mystery with Bonnie and have to say I love the journey and the ending :)  I have some dark grey that I will put a small border on and then a larger one with a light grey, I think that will finish it off nicely . Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. -27C here, so indoor time and sewing time for me .

Easy Street

I have finished the units up to all of Block 'A'. Just need to get block B put together.  I was a bit worried about my colors but am liking it as I put it together. I think I will be putting larger borders on it to make it fit my queen bed. This is my second mystery with gotta love them!

I just had to make one Block B to see how it would look :)  I was so looking forward to using green, just didn't know I'd be using so much.  Will be happy when I'm home from Edmonton and can continue putting this all together.

Easy Street

I am busy working on Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, Easy Street. Have a few units together, but as you can see many more to go :)  Have exhausted my stash of black and whites for this project.
I am hosting a block swap on a FB group Just Us Quilters...we are swapping a big Star Block from Missouri Quilting. The finished block measures 25" and they are very addicting!  Here are a few I made for my swap partners.

I have mailed out 16, so this is just a sampling. Nine of these blocks make a good sized queen quilt. Head on over and watch the youtube if you are intersted

Have a great day, and happy sewing in 2013!  Are you going to Quilt BC? I am and am so cousin and I are doing a road trip and both can't wait to get to Penticton.
