    Bonnie Hunter "Easy Street" thread?

    Will there be a thread here following the new Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt? I noticed there was for the last one. She states that this one will be easier than the Orca. This will be my first and would love some company. The link for fabric requirements and colours is http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2012/...sy-street.html

    I just checked out a couple of her others. Wow this one takes a LOT of fabric belfry. I think I will pass mostly because of the required grid tools. those things are out of my budget range. I am fortunate to have a mat, a rotary cutter, a 14 inch omni grid ruler and one 60 degree triangle. that sums up my specialty tools. The Christmas one she did was simple and pretty and certainly not only a holiday pattern.

    I am checking my stash to see if I have enough yardage for this! Sounds fun.

    I'm taking her suggestion and doing half the amount. When she does the reveal I can decide how to put it together then. I only do lap sized quilts. As to the special tools, I understand she also gives directions for those of us who are tool challenged. After getting burned on buying a flying geese ruler, I've decided no special tools for me unless I see them up close and personal beforehand.

    I will be joining you, too. This is my first mystery. I couldn't believe I had virtually no teal/turquoise in my stash

    I have the fabric and rulers. Just waiting for it to begin. Got just about half of the fabric from my stash and half at a 25% off sale. My husband and I will be doing it together, we have done two others as a joint effort and enjoyed it very much.

    I plan on doing this mystery each week. Last year I got all of my scraps together, but that's as far as it got. This year I will complete this project. I'm so looking forward to this project. I love her colors and have all colors except the purple together. Will need to go through all my purple fat quarters in my stash and pick my colors. Then, Next week plan on washing this fabric. So I'm ready on the 23rd. my fabric mostly was bought at Local quilt store, which had buy 8 fat quarters, get 8 free of fat quarters free, one weekend. The next weekend she had buy 8 yards of fabric, get 8 yards free. Yes I took advantaged of these sales. Looking forward to chatting and sewing with everyone.

    I think I'll do this. I had never done a mystery quilt before this year. Now this will be my 5th! The LQS is closing the end of the month and has 50% off everything. No sense shopping the stash....even though it had a sudden growth spurt this month.

    I'm all ready to start! Orca Bay was the first mystery I ever joined and I loved it. I pretty much love everything Bonnie does so I'm looking forward to walking down this 'Easy Street' with her!!

    I emailed Patrice about where she wanted us to put the information on Easy Street, but she never got back to me. We can just use this thread if it is ok with her. I have done her last two mysteries and they turn out awesome!

    I will be joining in to I have all the fabrics ready to go and just got a couple of her books off Amazon. They are amazing I don't think I've made a quilt quite this big before. I'm looking forward to it. The colours are delicious! It will be my second mystery quilt online.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    Belfry--I'll be joining you! I can't wait! I had all of her colors in my stash....I'm using dark grey instead of light grey. Don't know if I'll have time to prewash--maybe today. Let the fun begin...its my first mystery with her!

    Belfrybat,
    I have decided to jump in & do this also, Pam H. you inspired me to go for it. Want to thin some of my older fabrics out so I can buy more. Not sure about the grey though. Not a grey person. We'll see, picking fabrics for a mystery quilt is always a challenge -- even when I already own it.

    I had intended this to be a question but if it's going to turn into the main thread for Easy Street, how do I contact a moderator to see if they would take my question mark off the title and make it a sticky? I'm new on the board and don't know procedures.

    Here are my fabric choices minus the grey. I'm trying to decide whether to keep the bold print blue or not. Opinions please?

    I agree with you about the aqua small floral -- it's already gone from the mix, but did decide to keep the larger aqua print even though the green in it is not lime, it still seems to play well.

    OK, so as I understand your response about a main discussion thread for the Easy Street mystery quilt, someone will do a new thread on this board each week? How do we find it as the Orca Bay discussion was all on one thread? I know we have to go to Quiltsville to get the next clue each week, but thought there would only be one on-going thread here. Not complaining, just trying to figure out the way it's done here as I'm new.

    The last two years we just did one thread for the whole quilt. Everyone posted their fabric choices, then they posted their progress each week. I think we can get by with using just one thread, it will make it much easier. Like I said, I emailed Patrice and asked about it, but she has not gotten back to me yet. I think we can just post here with this one you started Belfybat, unless we are told differently by Patrice. You have already posted your fabric choices - they will be great!

    I won't be home until Saturday, as we are visiting my son in Phoenix, so I'll post my fabrics then. Come on everyone, lets see what fabrics you have chosen.

    Also for anyone who does not know, there is a Yahoo Group called Quiltville that you can join also. Lots of chatter and excitement over there about the quilt. They also have a photo section going for the fabric choices.
