Living on Easy Street

I'm a bit late with my post this morning.  Our power went out - again!  I am getting very annoyed with this.  It happens more often lately and it means I can't do anything.  Not even make a coffee or sew a seam.  But it's back now and I'd better hurry to get this post up.

Thank you for stopping by.  This is the last day of Sew Sister's Blogathon.  It's been fun, hasn't it?  I have met a lot of bloggers from all over Canada that I wouldn't have met otherwise.  Click on the Blogathon button on my sidebar if you want to see more of the quilters who make their home in Ontario today.

I cleaned up on Easy Street.  The blocks are not sewn together and I have a few more that I couldn't lay out on the floor because I don't have enough space.  But it's coming along nicely. Going to sew a few more blocks today - if the power stays on.

Oh, wow!  Do you see that lemony block in the centre?  I thought it would be green enough, but now I think it's too yellow.  Maybe I will have to take it out.  What do you think?

I have been on a finishing binge over the past few weeks.  Here is another top that is finished and waiting for some quilting.  It's about 48 inches by 74 inches.  The ladies in my Tuesday morning group are helping to hold it up.  I may have to send this one out to be quilted.  I can't seem to handle anything bigger than a baby quilt on my machine lately.

Still working on the hexies.  I got one of the corners done.  It is really starting to look great! This is my evening project - something to work on when I am watching television, so I won't fall asleep.

And in keeping with my ADHD personality, I saw a cute little Christmas wall hanging on someone's blog yesterday.  It is a free pattern by McCall's.  The Easy Street blocks were making me crazy, so I decided to sew this little top together.  Kind of like my little 15 minute scrap project for the day.

Well, time to go back to the sewing room.  Come again.  And leave me a comment if you can.  I love getting mail!  Have a great weekend everyone!

I like the lemon-y block - leave it in.

If there are more of the lemony blocks, I would say keep it. But if it is the only one, then I would find something that blends a little better.

Your zig zag quilt looks great!

So much nice to see here. I must come back soon, now I will make some food. I don't think it matters with the yellow block, but if you think of it yourself, just remove it. Nothing is worse than starting to think something must be changed and not doing it.

If the lemony one is placed near an edge with anything else slightly yellow green it will fit in fine. I just wouldn't place it near the center.

Your projects all look great particularly your hexagons. Wow, that will be quite the undertaking. Thanks for joining in the blogathon.

I have three blocks left of Easy Street to make then I can start to put it together. Yahoo! Yours looks fantastic. The lemony block does stand out, but that is okay as long as you like it.

I agree with Monica, if it's the only yellow one, it won't look so great. And I love your hexie quilt. Thinking of one myself. Thanks for sharing all these quilt projects. Saying hello from Kitchener.

Wow, your Easy Street is coming along nicely. I love, love, love you hexie quilt. It is gorgeous. I'm sure you will be so proud of it once it is done. A once in a lifetime quilt.
