Some of you who follow me on Twitter might know that I decided to do Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street mystery quilt this year. I've never participated anything like this and would like to have it under my belt. I'm pretty sure it'll be fun since I lot of people I keep in touch with are doing it. It'll be my largest quilt made so I'm looking forward to that too!
I was too lazy to take pictures of my fabric choices blaming the sun for not shining, but now I got over myself and took some photos. I picked pink, orange, purple, and lime green for the colors, and haven't decided if I'll do black &white or just plain white for the background. Probably b&w, but I didn't have enough so I ordered some and they're not here yet.
Here they are all together:
Pretty purples (the one on the right is my very favorite):
And the greens:
My cyber friend, Kristy @Quiet Play is into paper piecing and selling her patterns on Craftsy. She asked for volunteers for pattern testing and I'm glad to help. She had 4 new ones coming out, I got the Choptsicks pattern to be tested. I think it turned out pretty nice despite the fact that I messed up the colors, but oh, well :) Please visit her Craftsy shop, She has some pretty cute patterns for paper piecing. I particularly loved the last one She posted in her blog here about her dream sewing room.
Here's how my chopsticks pattern came out:
Since it's only a test piece, I didn't pay attention to have enough of the same white background so it looks kind of scrappy. It served the purpose so I'm not stressing about it.
I'm still working on the blue and white baby quilts, one of the top is assembled and just finished piecing the backing last night. Pictures will be in my next post so stay tuned!
'Til we blog again! :)
