Easy Street Update and Stash Report

Is everyone ready and waiting for Santa?  All presents bought, wrapped, cookies baked and you are just filling your time leisurely sewing on your projects?  If you said 'yes" to all of these, I'm envious.  I'm not even close to being ready, but I'm still leisurely sewing on Easy Street.  It's a bit addictive I will admit.

Her's my progress so far on Easy Street.  I cut and sewed Clue #3, and have cut half of Clue#4.  Hopefully I'll get #4 finished today and only be one step behind before the next clue is posted.  After Christmas I plan to get all caught up and keep up-to-date! Right, we'll see if that happens.

First part of Clue #3 - making the flying geese units with a purple square in the corner instead of a triangle. (192 pieces to construct 64 of these).

Then trimmed the dog ears of above unit and added the turquoise HST.  Now these puppies are pressed, trimmed and ready for their introduction into the quilt whenever Bonnie tells us.

Now I'm finally moving on to Step 4. I know most everyone is already finished with Step 4 AND Step 5.  Oh well, I'll get there soon.

There was not a lot of movement on the stash this week except the fat quarters I lost in our Christmas fabric game.  We play LRC (left, right, center) during our annual Christmas lunch every year and this year the winner picked up 33 fat quarters -- and it wasn't me.!  So there is nothing to add to my stash (a good thing) and I can deduct 3/4 yd from the 3 fat quarters that I gave up.

Stash Report numbers for the week:

Fabric Added this week - 0
Fabric Added for the year - 45.41 yds.
Fabric used this week - 3 fat quarters
Fabric Used YTD - 88.94 yds

  1. Your easy street quilt is going to be stunning when it is finished!

    Merry Christmas

  2. You are moving right along girlfriend! I got a lot done on Clue #5 Friday, but I still have to finish Clue #2, and #3 & 4 are only cut out - no sewing done on them at all yet. I'm hoping tomorrow will be a good day for catching up. But I'm thinking of working on the Curve It UP QAL before I get back to Easy Street. I'm so far behind I can't see daylight :*D

  3. You are making great progress. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  4. You amaze me! I so wanted to do this Mystery Quilt, but after printing out the first few clues realized I just can't right now. It sure is pretty!
