I finished up Part 6 of Easy Street today finally. It's been a busy weekend so far. I made it to the quilt shop on Friday to get the finishing fabric for Susan & Greg's memory quilt and then delivered a baby blanket to my husband's second cousin. Today I had some house chores to do before sewing. If only I could afford a maid so I could sit and sew while they cleaned!
Here are my 128 blocks:

I really hope we are about done with the backgrounds because this is all I have left:
I had miss cut some pieces and even sewed those back together and re-cut the pieces to the correct sizes. Hey it's a scrappy quilt, I figured it would be fine. But even with doing that, this is all that is left. It's a good thing I didn't just re-cut new pieces!!
I also did the "bonus" assignment:

I sat everything out together and we really have been busy! Look at all of this:

I'm excited that we are going to get another clue on New Year's Day! I hope we start assembling blocks soon!
Before I shut up shop for the day, I did one more block for the Modern Half Square Triangle Quilt-a-long. This is Block 4:

Then after dinner I sat down to finish the binding on a quilt that I am giving as a gift tomorrow. I know ... last minute. I seem to work best under pressure! And of course I had help! I'm proud to say that this blanket has passed inspection and has been designated kitty approved!!

And now of course the quilt is going through the dryer real quick to get the hair off. I know not everyone appreciates my babies' hair like I do! I hope to get some hand sewing in tomorrow and maybe a little cutting. We'll see what I can get in to. My Holiday Break is quickly coming to an end and that makes me sad.
