Cruising On Easy Street

Today I pieced samples of the final four blocks of this Mystery. I find it's easier to work from a sample block than the pattern with the designer's fabrics.
There are triangle blocks,
four small corner triangles.....
and twelve large side setting triangles. 
Then there are two different designs of 15.5" blocks that are combos of the smaller ones we have been piecing in earlier clues, these make up the body of the quilt. Nine of the above..........
and sixteen of these. 
It is a dynamite design and I can't wait to have mine ready to load on the longarm but it's going to take me a while to get all of these pieced and we have young Matthew this week plus I have three post-op rehab therapy sessions for my back. I did have to scrounge up more greens for these last blocks as I ran out of a couple of the originals but it makes it more scrappy and that's just a good thing!
Below is how it will look all done. Isn't it fabulous? I haven't yet decided on my borders it will depend on what is left of my fabrics.

Pretty!!! Love the colors. Hey, Ros, weren't you the one who tipped me about the titanium topstitching needles for fmq thread woes? I've been using those the past week and not a single thread break! :)

The fabrics are so pretty and the design is wonderful! I think it's going to look wonderful indeed.

I, too, am still working on my ES. I decided that since I have other projects, too, I would challenge myself to complete one block a day. Yesterday was a small triangle: got lots of other stuff done and/or planned. I think I will have the center done by the end of the month. ;-)

Take your time to get it done - there are a lot of people who haven't finished. It will be stunning when done.

Love your Easy Street blocks. It was lots of fun working on this with quilters from all over the world.
