Easy Street Part 3 Finished!

I'm glad to report that I finished the shaded  4 patch blocks for Easy Street! They're not as scrappy as the other blocks I made, as a matter of fact not scrappy at all. I swapped one color from Bonnie's and I used pink/yellow instead of the aqua. Hope it'll still work at the end, I'll keep my fingers crossed!
I was participating in the Google hangout yesterday afternoon and messed up the cutting. I forgot to cut from different fabrics and instead I only used one. Mistakes happen, right? And what was a girl to do? Just kept going.
It was the hardest step so far since I had to do a lot of un-sewing and re-sewing to get the points close. They're not perfect, but good enough. For me at least. :)I'm thrilled to be done in time to link up to the linky party here.
I still have some Christmas cards to make, write and mail and also have to work on some gifts too. I better get my act together, I'm gonna have to make a plan! Do you have a strategy to get last minute things done? Let me know in the comment section!

Here's what they look like:

You can find my earlier  blog posts for Part 1 here, and Part 2 here.

I'll be back hopefully later this week with Christmas craft updates.

'Til we blog again! :)

  2. Last minute? I have barely started. This week and next are my big weeks for shopping, card writing, etc. I really probably won't be able to think until Friday.

  6. Seems like Christmas is coming full steam ahead and "life" keeps getting in the way. House still not decorated. :( With the hubs finals over this week perhaps we can move forward.

  7. Very pretty fabrics! It will be a lovely quilt. I ended up cutting all my large triangles from the same fabric, too.

  13. Just a suggestion that you might want to add the Easy Street label to all of your blog posts about Easy Street. It would make it really easy to find them if they were all under one label. Of course, you may have a fabulous tagging scheme that I don't understand. In that case, ignore me! ;-)
