Easy Street is my first mystery quilt. As I looked at others' posts about their colors, progress, etc., I noticed that many of the quilters put their blocks in plastic bags and identified the step number on the bag. I thought that was a good idea but perhaps just a little extra careful to protect the blocks. I stored mine like this:
Today Bonnie Hunter posted the last instructions for the quilt. Now I understand why others identified the step number for each block and put the finished blocks in plastic bags. How much easier it would be to find the pieces by step number than by color and type (especially because I used different colors than Bonnie).
I've laid out all the clues I've finished (I couldn't keep up after Christmas because my family was here) and will add the step numbers to the papers. I know it will make it easier to stitch the blocks together.
I'm sorry my family has gone but sewing this quilt will, I hope, help me not to miss them so much. My 6-month-old grandboy, Mali, is one of the people I will be missing.
Happy New Year, everyone.
