    My Bonnie Hunter Easy Street Mystery Quilt Top

    This is my version of the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt Easy Street. Loved doing this mystery quilt over the holidays and love the way it turned out. I learned so much in the process... now just have to decide on borders. Any ideas?

    Wow, it turned out great! I hope you posted it in Bonnie's site too. I think just a wide red or blue border would be nice. You could do a pieced border but it might take away from the center a bit.

    I think a narrow inner border of blue and then a wider red border would frame it nicely. Great job! Amazing quilt!

    Good Job! I have all the units done but I have some deadline quilts to do before I can put it all together. I love your color choices. Keep us posted as you finish this quilt

    Lovely job I'm still putting the blocks together with mine. My first Bonnie quilt. I have really enjoyed the process too. Your colours are gorgeous.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    Lovely looking quilt! I would go with a blue border or a combination of 2 large blue borders sandwiching a thinner red border maybe, depending on what you prefer? I think some blue will balance the red nicely. I look forward to seeing what your finished quilt will look like. Thank you for sharing.
