Easy Street - Assembly in Progress

What a fantastic mystery that Bonnie posted for us called Easy Street.  

I am made a smaller version of the quilt - 1/4 of the blocks.  The blocks are done and just placed on the floor.  (I will take another careful look at my block placement before further assembly because it is very easy to misplace a block!)

Without borders, this quilt would measure 42 by 42.  I've decided to make it a bit bigger - another row - so that it would be 63 by 42 before borders.  I will gift it to my sister in law who has a significant birthday coming up in February.

I'd like to make the border without buying any fabric so I am thinking a narrow white border and then a wider gray border - or perhaps green if I have enough.

The fabric I used was Good Fortune (Moda) and the oranges, blues and greens are all a bit brighter in person.

I also want to thank everyone who stopped by my blog yesterday and left such lovely comments on my entry to the In Your Words blog hop.  Mdmn Samm and Linda pulled this together and so much fun to see all the different interpretations.  (Here is the full schedule on Linda's blog.)

I really enjoyed the opportunity to share my family quilt which was so much fun to put together for my mom and dad.  Family is important to all of us.  My very best to yours!

Happy Stitching!


  1. I love your colors and the way you grouped the blocks... it adds a bit of "order" to the scrappyness which I like. I also started by making a 42" square piece but then settled on 42"x 63" and I like size better. Thanks for sharing your work.

  2. Congrats on making tops yesterday :) Love your Easy Street, I think that a small group I'm in may do it as a group project soon.

  3. nice size, I am thinking of doing similar for my DIL.

  4. Gorgeous Easy Street and fabulous family quilt!

  5. What a pretty quilt, and the family tree is sweet too.

  6. Your Easy Street may just be my favorite that I've seen so far!
