Easy Street and Oranges


This morning, I did a little string piecing with orange stragglers for So Scrappy Saturday.  Each block ended up 8' -- so together we have a 16" unit.  Then I dug through the box of UFO's and found a little green hexie project -- no telling how old it is.

I see a little pillow cover -- or maybe the start of something larger.

 The big job of the week is quilting Easy Street (Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt we did over the Christmas and New Year's holidays).  I did the darker areas in green thread, then starting from the bottom, working my way back to the top, I have changed to a wheat color thread.  I see a lot of recliner duty to hand sew the binding on, because this is huge.

AND....because I had a few computer issues last week, here was the "Orange" wall from last Saturday that I worked on for Angela's So Scrappy Oranges.   A few pink/purple whacky logs were added and a couple of orange 16-patches.

There is a mess in my sewing room right now and I have to blame Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  As soon as she announced the 2013 H2H Charity Challenge, I started pulling fabric and playing. I have a little control, no cutting yet.  This is Sarah's third year and I am with her all the way!

I love the applique in the center and I always love string piecing - just a perfect match.

Great to see another Easy Street near completion. Mine is waiting in a queue to quilted, I don't know when it will be.

That's funny - I blame the state of my sewing room on her too!!

Seriously, your quilt is lovely, and the blocks are great! Looks like you're having fun!

"Easy Street" is gorgeous! The orange string blocks are so sunny and warm...just the thing I needed right now (although, at least this latest storm is in southern Iowa instead of coming across southern MN!! Always something to be thankful for!). Love the hexie touch! Hugs, Doreen

your Easy Street shows up better with the solid backgrounds. Mine is TOO BUSY. I know how you feel, so glad it is DONE! I got to show mine to Bonnie this week, that was fun!
