East Street quilted and bound

I'm so happy to be able to report that I just finished binding my Easy Street quilt and gave it its first wash. Hurrah! There was nobody home to help me hold it so I could take a decent vertical photo of it, so I put it on the floor and stood on a table to take this photo. It give you the idea, anyway.
I think I'm going to give this quilt to my husband Mac, who'd a huge sports car fan, because he says it reminds him of the famous (according to him ) "hippie Porche." Here's a photo of the car----I guess I can see a resemblance:
So this quilt will stay in the family. Now I have to cross my fingers that Mac doesn't try to buy the car to go with it.
I got some great news today, that I am pretty sure is not an April fool's joke. I was one of the winners in the March Block Lotto drawing, and I've won a bunch of really handsome 3-color rectangular blocks. Hurrah again! I think these will make a perfect quilt for my father, who'd got Alzheimers disease and is living in a care facility. I can't wait to put it together and give it to him.


  1. Congratulations on your Easy Street finish, and on winning- no fool's, 'cuz you are getting my blocks! I'm glad you already know where they are going. Blessings in April 1st, no fooling ~

  2. You really did a great job on that quilt! (And it does seem to match that car....)

  3. Fantastic finish! It does, sort of, look like that car. I should have mailed your blocks yesterday when I had the chance. Now it will have to wait until Saturday.
