Here's my Easy Street still on the design wall and waiting to be put together! My work week was spent doing other things, so today is the day I am going to tackle putting ES together! I decided to use just 3 by 4 on the setting, as I have a really pretty fabric I am dying to use as the border, and I'm afraid the quilt will get too big for my quilting frame! The left over blocks will get used in a small table topper.
Here's what I was working on during my work week. Scrappy Trips Around the World by Bonnie Hunter! I have 20 blocks made and I'm going to make 4 more for a 24 block quilt. At some point it will be finished for a charity quilt. These blocks are so addictive to make! I might just have to make another one!
And here is my long-term project from the book Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. I am making one of each of 140 blocks in the book. Our local quilt guild in Spokane is making this one for our raffle quilt this year, but I liked it so much, I decided to make one of my own. I have 26 out of the 140...so you see what I mean about LONG-TERM!! I thought this might be a wedding gift for Matt and Ashley (my son is getting married in June), but I think it will end up being a first anniversary quilt!
I'm off to get a new iron today...might quit working last night, then it's ES Day!'

Have a great day!
I am working on several things...too many! But I will share these 3. Heartstrings did a sew-in over New Years weekend that everyone worked on purple centered blocks. I had to work that whole weekend, but I managed to make 4 blocks. Yesterday, I managed to get almost all of the 24 blocks made for a small top to donate locally.
Here's my Easy Street blocks-at least most of them. I can't fit them all on my little design wall. This is SUCH an amazing design! I don't know how Bonnie Hunter is able to design quilts like this! Besides this quilt, I have 2 other Bonnie designs in progress. My L&E quilt-9 In the Middle from her book Adventures with Leaders and Enders, and I am gathering strips to start a Scrappy Trips Around the World.
Below is my January BOM block from Carol Doak-another amazing designer. This quilt is set to be done in April. It was a mystery and BOM. Can't wait to see the finished product!
I couldn't link up yesterday because of photo loading issues, which a couple of wonderful quilters at quiltvillechat helped me figure out. So here is my post a day late! Have a blessed New Year and a great day!
