Easy Street Mystery Quilt

This quilt was a Bonnie Hunter Mystery on the Quiltville Blog this winter.
 
It was based on these Lowe's paint chips...
 
 
These are not colors I would ever put together...

 
But individually I love each of them!!

 
I finished this quilt sometime ago but finally got it to Terry.
 
She is ALWAYS busy so I hate to burden her with my quilts.
 
But with the our quilt show coming up on June 29th and 30th, 2013....
 
 
I sent it her way
 
 and
 
she got it done in a blink of an eye....
 
 so I could bind it before going to NYC on Saturday!!

 
 This picture looks very washed out so you will have to come see it in person at the show!! 
 
It is not my favorite and probably my LAST mystery quilt EVER.
 

 
Terry did another incredible job of all over quilting.
 
I felt this quilt was too busy with no definition so just an all over pattern was all it needed.

 
I did manage to whip up a label... my 2013 New Year's resolution...
 
To label all my quilts from now on!!

 
 
While trying to get ready for the show,

I am amazed at how I don't know what year my unlabeled quilts are.
 
 
 
This year's show consists of quilts that have been made since our last show 2 years ago.
 
 
I think you will be amazed with our show as there are only 10 of us in our guild.
 
 
We are having some guest appearance quilts
 
 by
 
The Wednesday Girls of Estevan
 
and
 
 some honorary ghost members like Heather Piermantier.

Our Feature Quilter will be Irene Roy of Estevan,SK.


You will definitely not want to miss this incredibly talented lady!!


Mark your calendars!!

  1. My Easy Street top is still waiting to be quilted. I think yours came great! Perhaps we're just getting used to seeing quieter quilts lately, but there's a warmth and charm in the busier ones also. Love the colors. I went with primary colors.
