This is what I get for putting things off. In the rush to finish the sister quilts, I kept putting off starting Easy Street, Bonnie Hunter’s Mystery Quilt. I kept telling myself that as soon as the sister quilts were done, I could start Easy Street and get caught up because I’m retired and have all of this time… Right. I did print out all of her instructions, so I can do it sometime, but it won’t be in my near future. Unless, of course, I show it to the bride and groom and they decide they want a quilt like that….
I did start a BOM to practice my paper piecing – the Lucky Stars BOM from Don’t Call Me Betsy. She sent out a practice block, which I’m working on using Kate Spain’s Serenade fabric line. I’m anxious to see how it turns out although I’m not sure this fabric is the best choice. I probably should have just stuck with my beloved batiks.
The other thing I did this evening was some hand quilting, which I haven’t done for awhile. It felt good!
And here are the pictures of the finished second sister quilt that I promised to show you:
