Easy Street Step One

Yeah, I know.  I don’t need to do another quilt.  But I really do enjoy Bonnie Hunter’s mysteries and she promises there will be no more string blocks, so I’m giving it a go.  I reckon I’ve just made the deadline for the Mr Linky thing on her blog by about ten minutes, so Yay Me.

Easy Street

I decided that I would go with what Bonnie was doing hers out of, if only to push me into a whole different colourway.  I tend to stick to one or two variations on the same theme, which makes me lazy.  By choosing to use what she uses, I have to force myself to just ‘go with it’, and perhaps end up with a quilt I really love, rather than another ‘meh’ one.

So, she’s used grey, white, purple and lime.  I don’t have even the slightest grey in my colours, but I do have 2024935656 strips of black homespun.  So that’s what I used.  And creams/whites from the ever diminishing box of neutrals. 

Hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with this one.  I’ve got nothing else to do (cough).

Till tomorrow,



  1. I almost talked myself into it, then decided I would never be able to keep up! I'll enjoy following along virtually though - can't wait to see how it turns out.

  2. :) I really do need to Stop Starting New Stuff! but I figure Bonnie is a little bit different, I do enjoy her quilts and I always love the finished result.

    Thanks for commenting!

  3. A person essentially help to make seriously articles I might state. That is the very first time I frequented your web page and to this point? I surprised with the research you made to make this actual publish amazing. Fantastic job!
