    Red face My Easy Street, not quilted

    As usual I get a top done (and in this case the back too) and then I lose interest. I have no excuse, I have a wonderful DIL who helps me quilt. She has called dibs on this one (after I get to use it on my bed first- lol)

    I may have to purpose it as my B-day quilt (not saying which year) just to see it get finished.


    This was the Bonnie Hunter Mystery 2012/2013 Easy Street

    That is sensational! Please send a pic after you get it quilted. It is beautiful. I have 5 tops that need quilting at home and 2 more at the LAQ...I love doing tops but really am not in love with the quilting part!

    Oh my! Is the first picture the back? I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! Those little houses are so cute and I love the saying on it Too cute! oh and the front is excellent as well. I understand the "losing steam syndrome!". Although I tend to get mine after I've planned what quilt I am going to make and then buy/gather all the fabric for it....then I lose steam...Uuuggg! LOL! I can't wait to see your quilt all finished. You've done a fabulous job so far!

    The Houses were an ebay purchase, the top photo is the back, I wanted to throw something together that used up as much scraps as possible. The original by Bonnie was done in 'scrappy put everything in there', I did mine a bit more controlled just to use up material that had been sitting on the shelf.

    Wow, it is easy to see the amazing amount of work that went into your quilts. They leave me breathless just looking at all those small pieces. The second one has amazing colors too...all I can say is Wow!

    I love your colors. I wish I could get that far before I lose interest! I'm doing this quilt also and I've got the first blocks all done. Actually I am cutting mine down to 3 rows because I was beginning to feel over whelmed. Now I still have the second blocks to do and I'm struggling to continue. It's been that way with the last few of her quilts. I've been doing Bonnie's mysteries since 2007, maybe it's time to stop. I just finished a smaller version of Roll, Roll Cotton Boll and still have it waiting to be quilted. Yours is beautiful.

    thanks for the kind comments, I have several other mystery quilts that are not quilted yet either. I assume one of my daughters will finish them someday- lol (insert evil laugh here)

    Love your quilt and the colors are so cheerful. I, too, seem to always need to start another project before finishing the one I am working on. My goal for this year is to learn how to free-motion quilt on my Janome sewing machine.

    Wow seems to be the word of the day here. This is absolutely gorgeous, and I love that you did a controlled scrappy. Please post a pic when it is quilted.
