    Yes, I got the magazine in the mail on Friday. There are six colors and they are similar to Easy Street, it is called Lazy Sunday: light prints, chartreuse, purple/lavender, dark pinks, orange and teal. But there are three other color ways that other members of the magazine are doing. One is Christmas (which I think I would like to do), one Seascape and one Modern. These people are not doing scrappy, but only using six different colors. It seems like a lot of fabric, as I'm use to doing the scrappy versions of her quilts.

    I have all my triangles done and have started piecing block B. I'll get those 9 done and then do block A. I did not sew the double bricks for block A. I think I'm going to try using a single B&W fabric instead.

    Making progress on the "Quilt That Never Ends".

    I am piecing the blocks back together in the rows that they will be sewn in...trying to convince myself that this really is not the same project!

    I finished my quilt! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah - it took forever!!!! I will not be able to get a photo of it until next week, as we are leaving for a camping trip with our RV group on Sunday. We will be home late Thursday!

    Hello all, I have enjoyed looking at everyone's Easy Street finishes. I finally finished mine. While I would love to put a border on it, I think I will just quilt and bind. I want to put it on a full size bed and it is the right size for that without borders but the main reason is that my long arm frame will not hold a size any larger than this.

    I definitely learned a few things from this quilt. I had never sewn pieces this small and I thought I would never figure out how to use that companion angle ruler but lo and behold, I finally got the hang of it.

    Also, thanks everyone for your comments on this thread. I never posted anything but I read everything and that helped me with problems that came up because what I had a question about, someone else usually had the same problem and then another one of you had the answer. Thanks again!

    That's beautiful q.alba. Looks great without a border. Give yourself a big pat on the back, you should be very proud.

    Wow everyones quilt is beautiful! Well this weekend I completed steps 3 thru 6 and an ready to start step 7 (Monday) can't wait to get it done. I used the colors Bonnie did as it was a mystery and sometimes do not trust my colors choices combos and since it was my first mystery with Bonnie I followed her choices. When I get my flimsy done will post a picture. Good night everyone

    Last night I got all the rows pieced and pressed for the A blocks. I've been admiring my 16 neat little stacks but too tired to start putting them together tonight. I've got all my triangles and B blocks completed, so am starting to get close to final assembly. This is my third Bonnie mystery and I used her colors, too. The only thing I did differently was to use a single black on white 3.5" square instead of all the double bricks. :-)

    Finally finished my Easy Street flimsy week before last. Just now got around to getting a photo. It is a little too busy for me, but am so glad it is finished!

    Jeanie I love it! Congrats on your finish. I'm still stuck deciding on a border. Easy street keeps me company while I work on other projects.

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone! I'm just so glad to have another top finished! I have so many UFO's in my closet! Most just need quilting.

    Wow , they are all really beautiful. I only joined QB a few days ago otherwise I would have joined in. I was doing easy street but I got really sick and got really behind as a consequence. In the process of setting up a log cabin that my beloved built for me. Once I have all my stash etc organised I will get easy street back out and get it finished. I was going to have to send it to a long armer to get it quilted because my hands are not good enough to hand quilt now. I have a brand new grace queen and a Janome 1600p so I will be quilting it on that once I have had a practic e etc. Once I have finished piecing top I will post a photo.
    Candy I love your borders they are beautiful. I did not have the colours Bonnie used so I used fabrics from my scraps/stash apart from a beautiful grey with a butterfly pattern on. It is so nice to see how many people used different colours and how amazing they all look.Her patterns are great for that.

    First time posting on this thread and I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's pictures! I'm a little over half done sewing my rows together so should be able to finish that up tomorrow. I'll think about borders then. I'm wondering if any of you have quilted your Easy Street...the full size Easy Street...on your domestic sewing machine? I'll probably attempt that myself and would like thoughts and ideas on how to do it. Thanks!
