Easy Street DWM January 14,2013
These are my first two completed blocks from Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street Mystery Quilt . She runs a mystery during December every year. I've made several of the quilts and, while I curse all the fiddly little units, I fall in love with each quilt. My color choice gave me some pause but after I got all the seams sewn on these blocks I'm starting to really like it. Each block is a 5-patch, most of those patches have multiple parts so putting together each block feels a little like accomplishing an entire tiny quilt.
I arranged all the parts on my design wall because there are so many opportunities for mistakes and then I debated how to get it transported to my machine without scrambling everything. DUH! I do this all the time when I sew an entire quilt together. So, I stacked all the units just as I would stack all the blocks for webbing a quilt together. I have a little tutorial planned for tomorrow.
Hop over to Judy's blog and see what everyone else is up to. Then, go have a productive day.
