Easy Street

Yeah – Easy Street is now a completed top.  It took less than two weeks of slow and steady sewing to get it finished.  Why did it sit in a box for 14 months then?

022314    (910x1024)My design wall is 70″ x 70″ and the top is 75″ x 96″, so it overflows on to the floor.  I have a pile of leftover units since my Easy Street is twin instead of queen size, but I am sure that they will find a home in a future quilt.

The next item on the agenda is machine quilting.  I usually machine quilt between 2 – 5 tops before the urge to piece overwhelms me.  This time I have three quilt tops that are demanding to be finished quilts – one of which is Easy Street.  But first I will finish quilting the Split 9-Patch.

This pile of fabric is waiting for me when the machine quilting is done.

022314A   (1024x768)This pile is from a class that I took at the Denver Quilt Show several years ago from Pepper Cory.  I hope to get it up on my design wall today.

Happy Quilting,

    Marlene, your border really makes Easy Street. Great job!

      Thank you. I had always planned to use the green fabric as the outer border, but was undecided about the inner border. While I was debating between purple and teal, I realized that I had enough of the gray and went with that. Next I will have to find some binding fabric – maybe dark green.
