Easy Street ~

 
Was a pleasure to participate in

 
 
...seriously!


It is not a finish, but almost. 

It needs border choices and quilting, but I am grinning silly. 

It is this far completed, 

 and school starts in the morning. 









My calculations: 2,525 pieces in all ~ ~Hooray!!

1/07/13 Edited to add: I noticed 6-! flipped 4 patches, I am fixing those tonight. Larry said to leave them...yeah, right! "Mr. Perfectionist" wouldn't leave a mistake in his work; 
this isn't quilted yet, so yes, I'm fixing 'em  :-}


"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God"
Hebrews 11:1, 3

  10. It is beautiful! Always love bright colors with black and white. I count every step a "finish". Finished cutting out. Finished a block, then a top, then the quilting, then the binding. Love finishes!

  11. Oh, Pokey, it's GORGEOUS! We two of the same black/white fabrics. Now, did you really have to count all those pieces before I'm through??? Eeek! I just finished Step 7. It is getting more and more fun as I go along. I just wish I loved my fabrics. But it's still exciting! You have been VERY busy on your winter break, you wild woman!

  17. Oh my goodness! Is it beautiful or what?! Those black and white graphic prints are a great contrast with the lime and turquoise. It's definitely my kind of quilt. You did an great job in a short amount of time. I hope your return to school is good.

  18. Your quilt is beautiful, as are all I've seen. Is it my imagination or are 2 4-patches turned? One in block 8 and one in block 11?
    Beautiful job!

  20. It's beautiful! And if you didn't fix those mistakes, they would always be the first thing you see every time you looked at the quilt! Amazing work with all those pieces!!

  21. You did it! it's sure pretty too! 2,500+ pieces? Good thing Bonnie's mysteries don't come with a piece count up front, like a jigsaw puzzle. I know I'd be daunted by that number!

  25. Coming back from a Siesta to find your work in class always gives me a wonderful boost and inspiration, nothing Easy about the work on your Easy Street quilt, only in that you make it seem easy. And THAT keeps me sane! One block at a time.. C:
