    You are correct Suzanne - she gives information on how to cut without the rulers. Personally, I find them easy to use, and the pieces are so accurate.

    I too thought that it was way to much fabric but a friend who saw her during one of her webcam sessions, said that it was because of the number of seams. I just got her book Leaders and Enders and Bonnie suggests that the front would require 25% more than the back. Fourteen yards seems like more than that but I suspect some of the extra does allow for having a nice variety of fabric in each color. I think it was in the first thread mentioning Easy Street that one quilter who has done earlier mystery quilts suggested that 13 different prints in each color is ideal. I haven't gotten that many but it did make me push the envelop and get more than I had first planned. I got a new blade for my rotary cutter yesterday and am looking forward to Friday's kickoff.

    I don't have nearly that much fabric. I have about 6-7 of each color. I finally got all my black on whites - I had none! I won't be home until Saturday. So will probably not get to start until Sunday or Monday. I hope Bonnie's first clue is an easy one! LOL

    Yikes! I only have 4 of each. Hope that will work as I can't justify spending any more money on this project. I'm making mine half size, but that was still a lot of fabric to buy as I only had the aqua and a couple of the b/w in my stash.

    My Easy Street fabric

    I'm in on Easy Street. I did the Orca bay and am really looking forward to this one.
    I'm following Bonnies colors, will post pics on my blog as I go to link it to Bonnie's site as she had us do last time. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing too!

Size:  335.8 KBHere are my fabrics for Easy Street. Using the paint chips really helped me sort through all the choices at my LQS. I need to get my cutting table cleared and ready for Friday!

    So far I love everyone's choice of fabrics and colors I have mine in a stack do not have a lot of purple so thinking about using pink in the place of purple as I have lots of pink. Still thinking and must shop the stash but oranges, purples I just do not have a lot of or white on black but I think I have enough to make that work. Can't wait have never done Bonnie's mysteries and at least she said it is easier than here others so hopefully I will finish it

    I am doing this mystery quilt, my first one. Got all the fabric ready except that I need a few more black on white fabrics. I can't wait to see how the whole thing turns out, excited to get started on it.
