    Thanks for the link. I'm trying to all my homework before I decide. It would be the most pricey machine I've ever bought, but that 11" throat space is calling to me, along with a lot of other things...

    Your quilt is beautiful! I have to agree with you about doing her mystery quilts. If I had seen a pattern like this in a book before ever trying one, I would turn the page because it looked hard. I think Bonnie has made many of us stretch and become better quilters. :-)

    Neena, I like your version. The dark "geese" really make that secondary pattern striking. Wow.

    Here is my top completed. I am not as in love with it as I hoped I would be. I don't dislike it, I just don't LOVE it like I thought I would. I know I will like it better once it's quilted, I always do, but that won't be for a while. It's been a lot of fun, but I simply have got to move on to other "required" projects. I toyed with making just a 2 X 3 layout, but was afraid it would lose the effect of the pattern. Now I'm sort of wishing I had. I could have put a nice striking border all the way around and the finished size would have been closer to what I wanted. After making the 3 X 3 block layout, I decided I still wanted a rectangular, rather than square, finished quilt. (I find square quilts awkward to use as throws and that is what this will be.) So I opted to add borders to only two sides. I am a bit disappointed that all my hard work making the little pinwheels with the leftover triangles from step 5 (yes, I saved them!) doesn't show up well in the busy black print. I guess you just have to get up close and personal to appreciate them! Sorry the photos aren't the best this time.Name:  EasyStreetTop.jpg

    Scraplady, I love the colors in your quilt! The pinwheels are so cute, and yes, they would have shown up better with a solid border. At least you can say you are finished, I'm sure it will grow on you! Great job!

    I finished my Easy Street. I made just under half the blocks on each step, and ended up with almost the exact right number of units for a 2x3 layout. A 10" border all around gave me a twin size quilt.

    Love your quilt, Krista. Great selection of fabrics and it worked really well at that size. Nice work on the borders.
