Easy Street, Step 1

I had so much fun making Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt last year, I've decided to try it again this year. I've made about a quarter of the units she's called for so far. Here's a photo of a representative sample.
For this first step, at least, I'm sticking to the colors and fabrics Bonnie specified in her directions. The other colors she's recommended are a lime green, a turquoise blue and purple. Here colors are great, but I'm not sure I've got enough of them in my stash to make a quilt. I'm going to take a look now, and I may need to pick a substitute  if I can't find enough of one of those colors. The mystery continues!

  1. Totally off topic - but I have to say, watching the animated birds hop on & off of the chandelier is mesmerizing!

    Thanks for posting your link, it's a lot of fun to watch the progress that other quilters are making on this project. For me, it's back to my twosies.

  2. When I visited the "Sister's" quilt show, it was easy to pick out all those Bonnie Hunter quilts but I didn't see any I liked better than yours. It must be fun to do if you have a machine.
