Easy Street


 Welcome to Easy Street.  This is a first for me.  I am joining in on the fun over at Quiltville's Quips & Snips for the new Mystery Quilt.  It is call Easy Street.  So come join in with us.


 


The first Part is making 192 - 4 patch blocks.  The fun began last Friday and because the Family went all directions, I was left home to play.  Got started about 11:00 am and by 6:00 pm I had all 192 - 4 patches made......All though I have way too many UFO's on my plate I decided that I would treat myself to something NEW!  I now have tons of new found energy to tackle my UFO's... it will be fun to see how many of them I can finish while making this quilt.

Thank You Bonnie.....


 
The fun started a few weeks ago when Bonnie posted the information on the mystery quilt and seeing the paint chips to help us choose our fabrics.  What a fun way to see exactly what colors she was using.  I will surely use this trick to help show some of my friend what I have been up to.  Because the color that comes across with the photos is not always the same. And looking at fabric at the store you just hold it over the fabric and look at the hole.  It opens up a whole new way of looking at things.





 
This was my fabric inspiration and my choice of grey fabric for the med grey fabric that Bonnie used.  A little on the brown grey side of things.  I knew that I wanted to change the color a little because I have already made a black, white and green quilt and I really did not want this one to be the same.  So finding this print was perfect, 3 colors, plus backgrounds....GREAT!

 
Color #1 shades of pink

 
Color #2 shades of green

 
Color #3 shade of aqua

 
My light background, 
 I had been looking at projects using the printed words and just knew that it had to be in this quilt.
 
Be sure to check back next week to see my progress and more on the Easy Street
 
Enjoy....
