Easy Street, Part III

 All done with my 64 pieces in the latest installment of Bonnie Hunter's Mystery: Easy Street. Each clue is so much fun to complete, and not as time consuming as the string piecing in Orca Bay or Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll. Thank you, Bonnie, for keeping it easy this year.

I had all these grand plans to use fat quarters, but found as the clues keep coming my strip drawers can provide much of the needed colors. 

A possible arrangement? 

 This block I've blown up too much so it's pixelated, but can you see the teal millenium fabric? Tina from Seaside Stitches gave out half yards of this at our last Habitat for Humanity quilt-making workshop in November. Yes, it will date the quilt (literally), but this is what scrap quilts are all about.

Hope we get to play with the greens next week!


  1. I love the strong, denim blue...it really pulls it all together.

  2. Ha! I have that purple cheetah in my stash, too. I haven't started easy street yet. Maybe this week.

  3. Nice job, getting closer now!
    On the other hand I hate to see it end. :)
    Love your grape-ie purples!

  4. LOL, I just finished using up that same millennium fabric! I think all my 2000 fabrics are now gone.....I hope so anyhow!
    This is going to be a great quilt!

  5. Just when I think all my Y2K fabric is gone a strip or fatquarter appears! Love that a bit made its way into your quilt. I'm using up a lot of my bin strips as well!

  6. Aren't the blues and purples looking great together!

  7. like that layout!!It is fun guessing how it will all go together.


Love to hear from YOU!
