Easy Street Clue 4

I've been doing my best to keep up with the clues for Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt "Easy Street"....working steady and strong.  I'm almost completely caught up, but at this point I know it's not going to happen until the new year.

I have about half of the last clue (#4) complete...

My 64 purple flying geese with turquoise wing tips are completed...but I still need to trim the dog ears and sew them to another earlier completed clue.  I also need to cut out the lime green squares.

Clue #4 would probably be 100% complete had I not been "behind" on Clue #3 from the previous week.  I did finish that part this week also....

Alas...I still need to trim the dog ears from this clue also. :)

Sadly, as of this moment, I'm temporarily putting away everything "Easy Street" related in order to finish the last remaining Christmas gifts.  I MUST complete two gifts by this Friday when Ray and Kirsten take a quick weekend trip to see his parents in Pittsburgh.  While they are away (and I'm watching the dogs), I will also be completing 3 more gifts needed by Christmas Eve!

It looks like our oldest daughter and her family will be coming to visit us two days after Christmas which means I must put EVERYTHING away in my sewing room because it is needed as a guest room.  My youngest grandson just turned two years old this past September and he loves to touch, disassemble and "work on" anything he can reach.  This means all my sewing machines must be put away in their cases, all cutting tools completely hidden.  I'm sure you get the picture.

Hopefully, I will be able to pull everything back out and get going again around January 3rd....unless I need more time to recoup from having the entire family together for an entire week. :) :)  I'm really looking forward to having everyone home at the same time for the first time in several years!!!!

I hope it won't be too difficult to play "catch-up" at that time and be able to complete the mystery quilt along with all the other quilters around the world.

Until next time....
Merry Christmas!


  1. I've been watching for you. I have to put up for Christmas too but gladly because my daughter (from Binghamton) will be here Thursday. Merry Christmas and see you in the New Year.

  2. Your units look fantastic. It must be hard to put this exciting project away for a while. Have a great Christmas.
