Easy Street Part 7

Bonnie Hunter's pattern - my colors

Also got the Christmas infinity quilt backed, batted, spray-basted, and pinned, with the grandkids help. (Well, they weren't that much help.) (P.S. - Don't walk on your backing after you have sprayed it with basting spray.)

Bonnie Hunter Easy Street Part 3

I don't like surprises when I sew, and I don't like a lot of quilt patterns, so I assumed I wouldn't like mysteries. But I do like Bonnie Hunter, and I love most of her quilts. I have been reading her blog for a while (, and she does a mystery every year, posting one step a week. They are scrappy, and she encourages you to "shop your stash." So I thought I'd do it.
Turns out, my stash is mostly clothing fabrics rather than quilting, or already promised for quilts-in-progress(well, I try something, and then decide I want it larger(Don't judge!) So I had to buy most of this - in quarter-yards. I have kept up with the steps pretty well. Part 4 is half done, and Part 5 is out today! Gotta go sew!

(In non-related news, I bought 3 pair of dress pants from Half-of-half Price Store for $7. Not each - $7 total. and they were all size 14!!!!)

Christmas Infinity

I had this terrible urge today to drive nearly two hours to a new quilt shop.
Instead I stayed home and finished this puzzle quilt.  Sometime around Feb 2009, I saw a picture online and it grabbed me. I had to make it.
But I lost all the information about the pattern.
So I figured it out, and today I finished it. If you know the name of the
pattern, please let me know.

The original didn't have the border, but, as usual, my husband wanted it bigger --bed sized.
