Easy Street Wk 3 Linky up

Holy Cow, the week has flown past, but then again this whole year has.
I didn't get much done on Easy Street last week, until about Friday or Sat., then I got another 50 Flying Geese done, so now I have 88 of them flying around, and have another 40 to make.


Here they are in the bin with the 4 patches.








On one of the quilt cams last week I decided to make some string pieces, another thing I have never done before. May as well learn.. lol Using phone book pages as a foundation. I got 3 done.


Not to bad for my first times.






Last night I went ahead and did up about 5 of the new units and the 4 green triangles.


I'm getting better with the angle ruler.. Practicing is the key in my book.






I did get all the inside squares of my sister's quilt done now to finish quilting up the borders. Then to bind it up, I hope to get it done this week.


Head on over to Quiltville to see what everyone else is doing, we have some new bloggers check them out. Along with the other 249 bloggers that posted in last weeks Linky up.

  1. Your string pieces are so cute! My triangles are not so accurate, so I switched to another method. Thanks for your good wishes!

    1. Not suppose to be any string pieces in this quilt. I just did them for something new to do.

  5. I love the Mystery units you have done. I also love your string blocks. I don't particularly enjoy making them, but they are very effective and can be used in so many ways.

    1. The strings are not to bad to do, although it does take time. And I don't have that much in strings to do them with. :P but I'm plugging away at them one at a time.. lol
