I finally finished all of the blocks for Easy Street - the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt.  My points are not perfect and my seams are not precision, but I love it.  I really enjoyed the process and I am going to love the quilt.  It IS a work in progress as I must assemble the blocks and then add some borders - I think emerald green batik - then I will send it out for quilting.  I'd like to be one of those people who says "I do all my own stunts, er quilting" and I could be, but it would cost me a left rotator cuff and some nerve damage in my elbows and wrists.  Alas I will listen to my body, take it easy, and leave the quilting to someone else.

Toffee Helped some more - in that way kitties are experts at...


With Easy Street almost finished I hope to make progress on the rest of my finish along projects.  Of course I've got about 10 new ideas banging around in my head and if I send out a few more quilts to longarm services I might even get to them.

We had a super fun/busy weekend (more on that later) and things look to be super busy for a while.  I'm trying to 'go with it' and 'enjoy the moment' - you can stop laughing any time now.


Stop laughing!

I'll keep you posted!

Funky and bright blocks - the ant fabric is a gorgeous touch. I should have taken a similar pic to the one of your cat on your quilt block, but for me it was an 80kg dog on my whole quilt it was a bit more urgent to get him off before he messed the whole thing up! So need to get myself a design board!
