Tuesday morning! It is a dull day here in Montreal, but on the warm side for a winter day 36 degrees F or 1 C. I took this picture this morning from one of the windows on the floor where I work. It is one of my favorite windows to look out.
Last night I did some work on the Easystreet project, but don’t get a lot of time during the week. By the time I get home from work eat supper, talk to hubby, I have about 3 hours to do work on something, and I like the last hour before I go to bed to be something that I can sit in the living room and watch tv doing. So as of now I have done the 16 blocks of A, and 1 of block B, so still 8 more block B and 12 triangles and the 4 corner triangles, then I Should be able to start putting it together. I’m interested in seeing what it will look like finished as this was not well planned on my part. I started by ripping apart theses squares that I had done, I didn’t like the look of the squares at all, so apart they came.
Then I wasn’t sure that I even like the colors themselves, but at the time I wanted to buy fat quarters and this was all the store had . So I decided to try this mystery challenge by Bonnie Hunter. I worked on the quilt during the 10 days I had off at Christmas, I was always concerned that I would hit a part where I wouldn’t know what to do. I was able to follow along the complete time, ok not sure if those flying geese are flying or have crashed, but they are there. I then needed some other colors to go into the quilt, and I knew I had bought a few different types of black on white prints on my travels, so out came those from my stach. Now let me explain I have two spare rooms upstairs, but do all my sewing at the dining room table. When I need to press seems which I needed to do often in this quilt, I pull out some spare material and use it as an ironing board. While I was pressing the pieces from part 2, 3 and probably 4 I uses this Orange fabric I had. I had bought this a few months back it was very wide material, made for backing, but I loved the color of it so I bought a meter of it.. Yes here in Montreal we use the metric system and believe me I’m old enough to remember the days before we did, I always remember that a meter is basically 3 inches longer that a yard. Well I then needed another color added to the quilt so figured why not use it, so that how the orange ended up in this quilt. Tonight I hope to get at least 3 more of block B done and maybe a triangle or 2.
Square A there are 16 in this pile and they are bot pressed yet
This is square B 1 finished and 11 more to go
