I finished the Easy Street top. I had a problem because I used too many busy prints and also didn't use a solid constant (gray) like Bonnie suggested. The pattern doesn't pop out. I had to do something so I added 1/4" sashing between the blocks. Even though it didn't turn out like it was susposed to, I love the colors and George loves the quilt. I was going to do a border of the left over 3" blocks but he nixed that. Said it was too busy. He was right, as usual.

I do like this pattern and plan to make it again, only not scrappy.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Me too, Judy. Especially what she used for black-on-white.  I'm using a constant next time.   And don't be so hard on yourself.  Your quilt came out wonderfully.   Loving the corners.  It is quite lovely.  Congratulations.

I think the colors are beautiful. I think the neat things about this is the diversity in the outcomes depending on the colors used..

I did not exactly follow the directions either. I had grey instead of black and white backgrounds, which actually made some things stand out even more, but I wonder if it will be as easy to hide the quilting.  I like scrappy, but just can't really let go, plus I did not have that much fabric to go totally scrappy..

 

I have 7 more block b to do. Probably won't get it done today, I hope to get 3 more and then do 2 each night after work. I'll try to do some pictures tonight.

 

Again I love those blues and purples.  This is the most difficult quilt I have every done and I feel just completing it is quite an accomplishment.

Judy, I like the originality of the sashing in your quilt.  There are so many different interpretations of this quilt - all are beautiful in their own way.  I didn't use the black  and white prints because I thought it would look too busy with the lighter color fabrics I was using, but your dark sashing breaks up the busyness of those fabrics.  I like it.  I just finished the blocks for a New Year's Eve quilt today and hope to sew it together tomorrow.  Then on to Easy Street.  I have only 3 steps done so far so will be much later with posting the finished top.

Okay, here's my Halloween Easy Street quilt.  I really do like it.  So happy I did it.  I didn't make it as big and the extra squares I'm going to make another one.  Can't wait to see everyone's quilts.

When I first saw your fabrics, I wondered how they would blend - they were so bright.  I love the result.  The colors don't overpower each other as I thought they might.

Nice work Judy. I like your blues and the thin sashing works.

I got my blocks together but will wait for better light to get a photo. Most likely tomorrow before work.

Oh I am loving all your quilts, each different but all beautiful.

I've been making progress on mine. I had planned to switch the placement of the turquoise and green, but them I forgot and followed her colors. I wish I'd redone that step so that my quilt would have ended up with lots of turquoise. Oh well my kids like the green so I guess it's good.

Here's my progress, although I have changed the 4 patch on the bottom rows so they are going the right way now.
