Easy Street - On the last steps

Happy New Year! Mystery Monday Link up is here for Easy Street and there are some great quilts and wonderful color combinations. So check them out at Quiltville, Bonnie Hunter's blog.

With Bonnie's quick finish, and my low energy from a winter cold, I skipped most of step 7 and and jumped into step 8. I love how these blocks come together.

Out came the seam ripper, more then once.

I have 9 completed blocks, strips sewn for 6 more, minus the flying geese. That's right I'm back to making flying geese. I have enough fat turkeys; but when Bonnie said “we don't have any more geese to do”, that didn't apply to me.

Thinking about using this for the border:

I'm very please with my color choices. I usually work with scrappy, so the solids were unusual for me but were in my stash. A sign of a great pattern - any color choice makes a great finish. I haven't seen any Easy Street that doesn't look great.

Thanks Bonnie for a great pattern and a fun Mystery. Remember to check out the other quilts at Bonnie Hunter's site.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Wishing you  good health and happiness in 2013.

I had a great day sewing away on Easy Street while the DH watched football. I don't remember this being part of the instructions. I had sewed many strips together, this was my first block. Decided it was time to quit.
