Really Slow Progress

Wow, Easy Street sure does take time to assemble and I'm getting there slowly but surely.  I did check the linky party on Easy Street and was amazed at the beautiful tops that were completed in a rainbow of colors.  I know I won't be able to leave comments on all of the blogs because I'll never get my top completed if I do, so I want to take a moment to let everyone know how beautiful their quilts are.

So far, I have completed the corners, setting triangles, 6 of Block A and 4 of Block B.   Once the blocks are done I'll start sewing rows together and I hope to have that done this weekend--fingers crossed!   Here are a few of the bits and bobs that are done.

Next I have to start thinking about borders.  There has been a lot of discussion on borders on the Quiltville yahoo group and I am leaning towards a piano key border using the teal/turquoise prints I have left over; however, I will most likely need to add quite few to make it around the entire quilt.  I'll worry about that later as I've just go too much sewing to do right now in order to get the top done.

Snowflake decided she needed to get in on Easy Street and moved off her heated pad onto some of the blocks I had completed.  Snowflake is one of my senior kitties that was recently diagnosed with kidney failure so it is nice to see she still wants to help out even if she wouldn't smile for the camera. 

Working on this mystery has been a blast and I have enjoyed each and every minute as I have learned so much and will have a top completed in record time for a slow poke like me.  I want to thank Bonnie for her incredible generosity in providing so many wonderful patterns for all of us to work on.  I don't know how she does it and I secretly I think she is the energizer bunny in disguise. 

You can still find the pattern for Easy Street on Bonnie's blog site so check HERE to visit.




  1. Snowflake is beautiful! Your Easy Street is coming along nicely. I especially love the lime green square in the lower right of the picture.

  2. Love both of you quilting kitties. I miss my senior girl- she crossed the Rainbow Bridge in Sept. The house is SO quiet without her Katherine Hepburn voice! Your quilt looks great too ! :o)

  3. Great to see Snowflake enjoying Easy Street. Easy Street was my first Mystery Quilt, and I have really enjoyed it too.

  4. Your blocks look lovely and vibrant.

  5. beautiful Snowflake. so sorry to read about the renal failure - completely sucks.


Thanks for your comments!
