Easy Street Steps 7 & 8 and a partial reveal

I fell behind making the step 7 parts for this mystery when my grandson came for an overnight visit.  We just had to play cars and read and color.... much more important than sewing!

I made the four #1 triangles

but I completed only six of the 12 needed #2 triangles before the Step 8 reveal Monday morning. 

Step 8 has us making 16 block A

           and 9 Block B
(oh, but don't look too closely at this picture because I've oriented  two of those 4-patches incorrectly and spent half my sewing time frogging and re-sewing them correctly but forgot to take a corrected picture... I'll get that done eventually)

And because I am impatient and just can't wait to get all the blocks done to see what this will look like, after making just a few, I laid them out on the floor for a sneak peak at my own reveal!.

The holidays are over now and it's back to work tomorrow, so I will have less sewing time to finish assembling blocks and complete the top, but I will get it done and post pictures as soon as possible.

thank you Bonnie for another fun-filled mystery!

UPDATE:  Mon Jan 7...I don't have time to write up another post at the moment for the link up, but I have now completed all the triangles.  Will be working on Blocks A&B this week as time permits.

  1. You have done so well to keep up. Your quilt is going to be beautiful, with lovely fabric and colour choices.

  2. Your colours look fantastic! That is going to be a beautiful quilt.

  3. The blocks looked good on their own, but wow putting them together really makes them sing. Are you loving it?
    Look forward to seeing your progress.

  4. I've been struggling with my color choices for Easy Street because they are too low-contrast for all the colors to stand out brightly. Yours is the first quilt I've seen that also has low contrast colors. Yours is just beautiful and has caused me to reconsider changing one of my colors. Actually, your quilt is not just beautiful, it's stunningly beautiful! Thanks for posting photos.

  5. Hi! I just love the different "flavor" of fabrics that you've used. Bery pretty :)

  6. Great fabrics! I love the softness of your colors. Hate to say I'm too old for the brights that are popular now, but I they remind me a little too much of my middle school years. (laughter)

  7. Luckily we won't be fined if we don't have our tops finished. Playing with grandchildren is much more important.

  8. Your quilt will be beautiful. I love the red/pink 4-patches.
