Easy Street

Following tradition, Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville fame, has posted the first clue to the 2012 quilt mystery entitled Easy Street!  Bonnie posts a new mystery each year on the Friday morning following Thanksgiving.  Then, for 6-8 weeks following, Bonnie posts a new clue each and every Friday until the mystery is solved.  Woohoo!

Easy Street - Intro
I couldn't wait to get started!  As soon as the fabric selections were posted, I began to pull as many fabrics from my stash that I could come up with to meet the criteria.  This year, I was determined to follow BH's color scheme...why not?  She IS the expert and don't we all love her quilts?  That IS why we all play along, after all!

The only variation I really have to that scheme is that my grey is really a grey floral printed on a more light aqua-greyish background.  I hope it works!

Easy Street - Part 1
And at long last...and amid all the anticipation...the first part was posted...ahh....  In Part 1, we made 192 black on white & grey 4-patches!  I'm keeping up so far...bring on part 2!

I like the way you're displaying the steps of Easy Street.

Your fabrics look great! I cant wait to see the results! I also made that Nickel Quilt pattern before that's pictured in your header as a group project with some fellow quilters. We wound up donating it to Quilts of Valor with that great patriotic palette!

You are ahead of me on Easy Street, but tonight I am cutting my strips. Hopefully I'll be caught up by Friday even though this week is going to be a nightmare with other commitments. I am using her suggested colors too because I love them and as you said, she's the expert.

Your fabrics are lovely. The 4-patches look fantastic.

I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn

I love your fabric choices! My gray is also a lighter shade. Hopefully it will be a "happy" choice. I'm #178 on the linky pictures. I only have about 30 4-patches to go and have started on my flying geese. Love Bonnie's mysteries!
