Already? This is fantastic! I still struggle with part 7. But I will finish it, may be in a month's time.

beautiful-both quilt and Sonja! I hope to have my Easy Street top together tonight. I am thinking of making a pieced border. I was hoping others would post some for inspiration!

Anita said...

That quilt is stunning! Lovely, bright, fun colors! Happy New Year!

Color choices turned out stunning.

The quilt top looks fantastic. Little on looks like she is enjoying her seat as well. Well done on finishing the Easy Street top.

Great job I love it! Sonja is pretty adorable too! I am still sewing blocks! Hope to finish it over the weekend though.

Fantastic! It looks wonderful.

Laila said...

Great job! I'm still working on the blocks, but hope to finish during the upcoming weekend.

Melody said...

It looks brilliant. Hugs to sweet Sonja

Janet O. said...

Wonderful job! I like the black (or is it dark gray?) chains in place of the light gray. Makes a striking frame for each block.

Connie said...

Looks beautiful Bea! The black is a great accent. Now back to working on mine:)

Elaine M said...

Sonja is a cutie! Your quilt looks wonderful. Like the rich colors. The black adds some depth.

I like that you did black instead of grey, it really pops, are you going to add a border or are you done?
fingers crossed I sew a little tonight, at least enough to 'see' how it might look if I ever finish- lol

Ann Sheehan said...

Wow, well done on finishing Easy Street. I have finished all my triangles and have started putting my blocks together. I had some machine trouble this week which was so frustrating. I think I have it sorted now though. Best of luck with the borders.

Mary said...

Love your Easy Street! It really came out nice! Little Sonja just keeps getting cuter! What a doll!

Pam said...

It turned out beautiful! I love the black constant instead of the gray.

Needled Mom said...

Great job and it looks fabulous.

Easy street looks great! I am also using Bonnie's colors. I am a little unsure of the aqua and lime green together but yours looks fantastic so I'm sure mine will as well.
