Easy Street.

Once again, Bonnie K. Hunter is hosting her annual mystery quilt-a-long.
I look forward to this event every year.  The patterns and colours are so different year to year, the quilts are amazing.
The first clue came out last Friday, but it has taken me until last night to actually decide on colours.  Bonnie has used Grey as her constant, Aqua, Purple, and Green her main colours, and Black on White prints as her background. 
Recently I went through my fabric cupboard and donated a heap of fabric that I thought I would never use.  Unfortunately, this included anything with grey, aqua or bright purples and greens.
I've mulled over many combinations, finally settling on yellow for my constant, Red, blue and green colours and shirtings for my backgrounds.  All from my 18th century repro cupboard.
I did consider cheddar as my constant for a while, but yellow won the day.
So, finally, here are the first 22 blocks of step 1.  Only another 170 to make!

Bonnie has a Linky happening over at her blog , at last look there were over 200 people linked up with their blog posts showing their progress.  Please drop by and have a look.


  1. Sew like the wind Kerry! The 4-patches are looking good.

  2. Your yellow looks nice, and with red, blue and green-great.
    I'm one of the 200 and I'm from Norway. We are living all over the world - I love to do this together.
    I used black and white for the first step. Then I will use red and pink, but the last one? Yellow or green?? This is not easy. Waiting for tomorrow.

  3. I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn

  4. These look great. It's so fun to see how people are changing up the colors to accomodate the fabrics in their stashes!

  5. Good for you to have joined in! I wonder why Bonnie chooses to offer this during the busiest time of the year! Wish I could join in, but it's just not feasible. I'll enjoy watching your progress.
