Easy Street Part 3

I was a little afraid that I wouldn't get this week's installment done, but I did.  I started cutting Friday before I left for my MRI for my foot.  I got everything cut except my background triangles.  I did get the strips cut for those though.  Here's everything after I got through cutting.  I've really got to cover that pressing mat!

Saturday, I had a few things to do around the house, but I knocked out my 64 (plus a few) blocks in just a couple hours:

And of course I cut the tiny little bonus assignment:

I'm really liking these color combinations.  I'll add the link Monday for the Link Up to Bonnie's Blog. Check out what every one else is doing on Easy Street HERE at Bonnie's Blog!

I also dug out Susan & Greg's Memory quilt and started working on laying it out .... I would like to get it to the quilter by the first of the year if I can swing it.

I started piecing the 9-patches that go with these blocks.  I'm using Jo Morton's pattern. It's going to be slightly bigger though than what the pattern calls for.  I may have to make a trip to the quilts store to get some more backgrounds and a couple of borders.  Maybe I can squeeze that in next weekend but there's a lot that needs to be done around my house for Christmas.  We'll just have to see how it all plays out.


  1. Your Easy Street is looking great! I love your green fabric, too.

  2. Nice job, getting closer now!
    On the other hand I hate to see it end. :)
