    Thanks everyone! My top is now a flimsy with the inner border on. I don't buy much yardage (I have a HUGE stash of FQs-1 yd cuts), so I had to use a turquoise and "piece" in corners in a different fabric. I may have just enough purple to get a second 3 1/2" border bringing my top to about 95x95". That should be just fine! I'll post a final photo tomorrow.

    Peachy, very pretty! Good job.
    Lots of great Easy Streets posted.. Beautiful job ladies..the different colors sure make it look very different. Neena and scrap lady, I love your quilts. And krista, very neat borders.
    I am still plugging away on mine..doing the three by three layout as I want it to be a throw quilt for the couch. I have all my blocks sewed and my setting triangles almost done, just need to join the last strip in each one..hopefully tomorrow I can take the hour I need to do that and then put the blocks together..I am loving this quilt.

    Just want to share my little progress with you all today, I officially have all of my blocks and triangles pieced and now I need to put the blocks together, my least favorite part of quilt making lol. I did the 3x3 layout, and it is plenty wide but I'd like it a bit longer for a couch quilt, yup we are tall here lol. Without borders, this layout finishes at about 64 inches, I would like it to be a rectangle and finish a bit longer so I am thinking about top and bottom applique borders..once I put it together I will audition ideas...gives me motivated

    Looks great! I love your colors. I haven't done mine yet but it will be a smaller size too so I'm anxious to see what you do with the borders. I like rectangular quilts better than square.

    Thanks ladies.
    Quilts4fun, I like square quilts for walls and don't mind them on beds, but for couch throws and such I feel I need my quilt to resmsble my shape which is definitely closer to rectangle than square lol. Hoping to start putting the blocks into rows today. And I have an idea for floral applique on borders, will draft it sometime this weekend. Really wish my weekend has about 59 more hours haha.

    Wow! I love everyone's quilts and colour choices. I've just got to get cracking and get mine done. Other mysteries and quilting projects keep intervening. But since I actually purchased fabric for this one, I am determined to finish it. Just seeing how everyone's turned out gives me a lot of encouragement.

    I am renaming my Easy Steet. The new name is "The Quilt that Never Ends". Yes, just like the song, it goes on and on my friend:

    This is the quilt (song) that never ends.
    It just goes on and on my friends.
    Some people started piecing (singing) it not knowing what it was (a mystery),
    And they'll continue sewing (singing) it forever just because.....
    Etc.

    Oh my word...it just won't get finished already!

    Hope I made you laugh.

    LOL Fraew, we must be doing two different mysteries! Yesterday, I finished piecing my top and thought to myself "wow that went fast" LOL..I did just do 3x3 layout, so 9 blocks A and 4 blocks B so maybe yours is just going on because of the extra blocks?? Either way, just keep plugging along, it is SO worth it and you will love it at the end
    I am planning on working ob on borders tomorrow and then I will post pics.

    Happy Saturday y'all.

    The pictures have been LOVELY and I'm looking forward to seeing more! I have everything cut and ready for final assembly except for the double bricks. I can't decide whether to piece them or use one fabric cut at 3.5". Will probably cut a few squares and lay a block out to see how I want to go with it.

    It's a three day weekend for me so I hope to get lots done. :-) Laura

    Wow! Everyone's tops look great! I have done mine in two different ways. The first one is the originally planned and then the next one is with the blocks side by side but gives the look of it being on point. I made them smaller than originally planned and still have to do the borders but am happy with them so far. I was thinking of trying a ribbon border on one if not both of them.

    Brooke, your quilts are exquisite! I just love them both. Your colors turned out great! I'm anxious to see what your borders look like, sound like a good idea.
