Easy Street part 2


100_4204
Last night I was picking and cutting and so far have all my 4patches done plus 20 of my Flying Geese (FG)

I think I mentioned I am not a purple fan so this was my choice again using up some stash these blacks or darks were found in the FQ part of the stash.

These are pinned for Monday night quilting fun, you can see it is the no waste method of FG. I just have to sit and sew them. Tuesday night is another Dinner with DH and Wednesday is Easy Street with Irene Thursday I have something on the calendar just can`t remember will have to look and then Friday Saturday working nights again (working straight through till mid January now then I will take a small break)

I am a neglectful friend, when I had visited Hetty the first time she introduced me to this lovely aloe plant it is BIG. I loved it and in saying that she gave it to me…Isn`t it gorgeous I know my picture is a little dark sorry it is 300am…and I can`t have to many lights on.
Well see if I can get a little nap in before work exciting times are ahead with this mystery many quilters are working on this one and cyberspace had allowed us to quilt internationally!!

  2. I was going to try the no waste method but I think I'll try it the first time on a project that requires fewer units. Your colors look wonderful.

  3. Great Job. I'm looking forward to the two linkys that reversed the geese colors accidently :)

  4. Easy Street is coming along nicely. You'll have to teach me the no waste method of FG. The Aloe Vera looks great. I hardly recognized it. You can cut any of the small plants around the outside (the ones that are falling out of the pot) and stick them into a pot of soil and they will grow into a new plant.

  5. Looking good so far! I think I will try the no waste method the next time I do flying geese. I had the rulers to make it Bonnie's way, but the other method has been on my "try this" list. Looks like you're all ready to sew tonight. Have fun!

  6. You are making great progress. I like the yellows with the blues. That is quite an impressive aloe plant. I have a small one struggling to survive my "care." Good thing I can sew, because I am no good with plants.

  9. Hi in TO! Got snow? We do! A great opportunity to work on 'Easy Street'. You have a lovely selection of muted fabrics there. I love purple, but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. :-)

    Best wishes from Alberta...

  10. Your flying geese are looking good and go great with the 4-patches.

  11. Looks good! I also opted for non-purple for this step. I like the blacks and grays so far. And your aloe plant is so much healthier than my houseplants!

  12. I have seen so many bloggers posting their parts of Easy Street. I feel like I am missing out but just don't have time to participate. I will enjoy everyone else's quilts through the pictures.

  14. You're coming right along...and so glad there are others UP in the wee hours of the night...or is that morning! Good work!

  16. Your geese and four-squares look great 'Debra from Toronto'. I am a total newbie/beginner quilter living in Toronto, and find it difficult to find good stores for quilt supplies -- where would you suggest looking for things like new fabrics, great sales, notions, thread? Keep on keeping on with the Easy Street quilt!
