|All pieces cut and bagged ready for Mysteries for Relay weekend.|
|Some of the units sewn together.|
Here are the pieces of the clue I am currently working on in Easy Street. I think the really dark purple doesn't add much I may rethink that color. I don't have tons of purples so there isn't a whole lot of other choices but I bet I can find some a little brighter/lighter than those stars on deep purple.
There are 5 little house units as Bonnie Hunter calls them. Nah, that dark purple is just way too dark.
The black and white strips will be cut into 3.5" squares. Once these two steps are done I think all the pieces will be sewn. I know I need to cut some additional fabric that goes into the blocks. I don't think I'll worry about what needs to be done next until after these two units are finished. I'm making slow but steady progress on Easy Street. I don't feel any need to rush. Especially since I can look at all the different settings and borders folks have come up with while I plug away on the basics. Great inspiration on QuiltvilleChat at Yahoo groups.
Next up weekly goals review.

Ok, enough to plan to do this week. Sharon's visiting on Thursday through Sunday so I should get lots of quilty things done. I'm looking forward to see what she has planned to show me. I'm hoping to get one of the charity quilts quilted so she can take it back to Faithful Circle Quilters guild. I've had 2 quilts for quite a while but haven't actually worked on them because I knew I wasn't going to be going to the guild meetings or seeing Sharon. Now, I need to get going on one!
Take some time this week to view design walls all over the internet by going to Patchwork Times. I'll be spending some time this morning hitting a few blogs.
