At long last – Easy Street with a Twist

I’ve finally finished my version of Bonnie Hunter’s Easy Street. I changed the pattern just a bit. It’s not my favorite quilt I’ve ever made; in the future I’ll go with my instincts and choose a solid instead of the black and white fabrics. It’s just too busy for my taste. It did use up a lot of my scraps!

I couldn’t get a great photo of it. It was a cold and blustery day here in northwest Ohio, not quite the spring day I was hoping for. And let’s face it, I need to be a bit taller to get a better angle on these large quilts. This one is 85″ x 85″.

Right now I’m working on two quilts for the upcoming Sauder Village Quilt Show, which is always a nice event with about 400 quilts. The Village is a great place to visit so make a day of it and come see the beautiful quilts. This year’s show is Tuesday, April 30 – Sunday, May 5, 2013; Sauder Village is located in Archbold, Ohio.

My larger entry is pieced, quilted (thanks Charisma!) and the binding and sleeve are on; there’s just the hand sewing left to do. My smaller quilt still needs to be quilted. At 45″ square I’ll be tackling that myself using my Janome 7700. I’ve got my work cut out for me for the next few weeks!
