    I agree about my comfort zone - anything that makes me step outside it is good. Even if I don't like the results, it helps your creative juices flow and find what you do like.

    I agree completely about the easy angle and companion angle. I use them all the time now, thanks to Bonnie.

    I'm glad you like it without the border. I've been into that style lately and it works well in a lot of situations.

    I'm looking forward to seeing yours finished!

    I made Easy Street also and posted pictures in that thread. Also was not sure about the lime green and using that black and white. I thought it was too busy, but I stayed the course - made me work outside my comfort zone color wise. What I really like now is seeing the other colors used. Shows me that any colors would have looked good, just like Bonnie said and next time (yes, I am hooked and will participate again) I will work from my stash and choose colors I am more comfortable with.

    Other pluses, I learned to use the easy angle and companion angle and I had never worked with flying geese that small.

    Also, I like seeing yours done without borders. I think I am going to have to go that route. Otherwise, it will be too wide for my quilt frame. I have learned that I am one who thinks a quilt is not complete without a border so I am struggling with this. Seeing yours confirms that this one does not need that border so I just need to "git-r-done" so that I can mark it off my list. Thanks for sharing!

    I pretty much agree with the above, but I am determined to complete this quilt as I have many hours already put into it. Thank for posting your photos very nice I like the dark outline of the blocks.

    I rather like the black. It defines the blocks. Nice job.
    If life gives you lemons, make Lemon Juice!! Make the most of everything.

    Looks really nice--I'm still plugging away at it a little bit every day. It will take me forever!
