working on easy street

I've caught up quite a bit on EASY street.
here's step #2
But look on the left, obviously I don't know HOW to count.
I did the method of having a large square in purple and then white squares where you mark the center line and line two squares down diagonally, sew on either side, iron, cut the line and repeat with remaining whites (it was in quiltmaker last month)

here's step #3 being worked on and 4 lined up and ready to go (I also mis calculated the purple squares for #2 so good thing I could use them for #4)

here's step #3 all done and dog ears cut off.

All ready in a rolling basket :-)

I also finished the BOW Miriam, not someone who I've read about before, I think...
How she played the tamborine and women followed her, here the block is supposed to be a windmill type of block, so I chose fabrics that were close in color, the sample block was purple, but there's no purple in this line of fabric, so I chose blue, I foundation pieced this one, what a pain that was, and it's all awkward too, might have to re-make that one, we'll see.

Took these pics last night, Sonja and Peanut :-)

Daddy and Sonja's hands.

Love your Easy Street! Wow, lots of projects--I don't even count mine and it's a good thing because I would probably be shocked!

Beth said...

Easy street looks good! Wow that is a list and that was a lot crossed off too!

Michele said...

Easy Street is going to look very cool when it is all done I'm sure.

Eva said...

Do you have photos of all of your finished projects on this site? I would love to see them.

Your units for Easy Street look great! And the photo of Sonja and Peanut should be a Hallmark card!
