My mother always said, "Never start a project on Friday unless you can finish it on Friday." I've found that adage to be true in my life: I know that if I start a project on Friday it will not get finished. (Of course just because I don't start a project on Friday doesn't mean I will finish it.) Anyway, when Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street clues are published on Fridays, I read them, make a note of them, print them, then go back to whatever I was doing. That puts me a little behind every week.
For example, below are my strips for 4-patches, waiting to be sewn, then cut. Some are already cut and some are already sewn into 2-patches. (Colors in the photos below are not accurate.)
I have 65 4-patches finished, which means I have about 1/3 of the total I need. I'm having trouble enjoying sewing these blocks. I find them so very boring to make.... I have also cut 40 of the 64 2" x 3 1/2" blocks.
BUT, all of my green and cream geese are cut and stitched! I'll trim their little feet off sometime when I'm riding in the car (with my husband driving), watching a movie, or when I'm too tired to do anything else.
For this week's clue I have all the squares and small triangles cut and stitched. I still need to cut large red triangles and stitch them to the other side to make squares.
Don't you love a mystery? And don't you always try to guess "who done it" before the book or movie ends? I'm doing the same for this quilt. I'm guessing Easy Street is a variation of one of the "Road to..." blocks. Road to Oklahoma. Road to Jericho. As soon as I finish some more of clue 3 I'm going to lay out some possibilities. Of course, doing that discounts the fact that we'll probably have at least 4 more clues, and 4 more parts to stitch. Still, it's fun to play.
