Easy Street - not so easy
First, I sewed in one of the triangle blocks upside-down (inside-out???)on
my first block A.
Then I put together my first Block B, sewed it together with two Block As
ad two setting triangles for Row 2, and...
Why doesn't that look right?
After Bonnie explicitly said to be careful of the orientation of the
four-patch units, I put them in inside-out (upside-down????).
Because my colors are different, I read the diagram wrong. I had to unsew
eight (EIGHT!!!!) pieces out of the middle of my quilt!!
But, it's done.
Bonnie - I want to tell you three five things:
1. This is the most complex quilt I have EVER done - and if I had seen the
picture of it finished, I probably would never have started it.
2. I have never done a mystery before, and have no idea why I have been
POSSESSED by this one.
3. I LOVE IT!! It is so beautiful!!
4. My husband, who only compliments my quilts normally because I expect him
to - and doesn't really know what to say about a quilt, LOVES it also. He
has talked about the colors, the complexity, the variety of shapes, the
size. He goes on and on (well, more than he usually does...)
5. Block A has 77 pieces of fabric in it. - Block B 69 - really,, REALLY???
Bonnie, thank you so much for this fantastic pattern, for running it as a
mystery, for your great blog, for the quiltcam, for your enthusiasm.
