Loose Threads: Catching Up On Easy Street

Catching Up On Easy Street


I've been cutting and sewing the last few days and have finally caught up on the Easy Street Mystery Quilt over at Quiltville, Bonnie Hunter's web site.  Bonnie is posting a clue every Friday for 6 to 8 weeks.  The 4 patches with the grey are from week 1, and the purple flying geese are from week 2.  I've even done the extra credit and have cut the rectangles that will be used in a future step.

I'm using the colors that Bonnie recommends:  purple, lime green and turquoise along with the grey and the black on white backgrounds.  I'm a bit concerned that there are no warm colors in this quilt, but since Bonnie recommended these colors, I decided to go with them and see what happens.

I've also started decorating for Christmas as you can see by the afghan in the background.


 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today!

Wow, you even have the "extra credit" completed? How does it feel to be ahead of the game? Does this make you teacher's pet? : )

I'm trying to get on board with this, but I have no scraps in these colors. And I'm scared to pick different colors without knowing what it's going to look like. Good for you!

Great start! I plan to work on my geese today. I know what you mean about the fabrics colors she chose for this quilt. But, I'm following her instructions as well as I can. Counting on her experience to result in a pretty quilt.

Looking good so far!!! I need to work on a few more geese today.

I agree with Karen. Bonnie's recommendation for colors is a bit scary for me, and choosing other colors would be hard. I will just let you do all the hard work and then I will decide;-)

blessings, jill

Looking good, LuAnn. Appears that you are keeping up with the steps. Now if there were just more hours in the day, I could get everything ELSE done!

It's so hot here, I'm looking forward to making a quilt in cool colours LOL. Your units are looking great.
