It's time to share how I've fared on Bonnie's second clue to her newest mystery, Easy Street. Clue #2 uses more of the Black-on-White (a.k.a. BOW) fabrics as well as the purples. Yum! I'm really loving this color combination, even more than the typical BOW and red combination you see so much of.
I'm so excited, I actually finished this clue before the end of the weekend! This is the first time I've managed this feat with one of Bonnie's mystery quilts, it usually takes me much longer to get a clue finished. In fact, I'm usually struggling to get done in time to join the Link-Up before the Thursday night deadline. Yippee! Can you tell I'm thrilled? LOL.
While digging around in my stash, I found more BOW fabrics. I pulled these out and used them for this clue. I also found a few bits of purple in my stash, but mostly I had to buy more purples to use for this project.
These are the fabrics I am using for this clue:
And here we have all the pieces cut out and ready to be assembled. It doesn't look like all that much, but it will, in fact, result in the 128 flying geese units pictured above.
I even saw the little bit at the end of this clue that said to cut out 64 rectangles 2" x 3.5" out of our BOW fabrics for a future clue. Did you catch that? Here are my rectangles all cut out and ready to go. There's more variety than you see here, the fabrics just got stacked up and the rest of the prints are hiding. Yes, I'm a neatnick, can't you tell? LOL!
Now I can't wait to see how we use the green and the teal fabrics! Bring it on, Bonnie! :)
