Yesterday I spent a fun day working on the first part of Bonnie Hunter’s new mystery quilt called Easy Street. Of course I had to take breaks from sewing all those little blocks and I spent that time hitting some great Black Friday sales online. I have lots of fabric and some new AccuQuilt dies coming.
My daughter and grandson went out Thursday night to the stores to hit all the sales….yep…they were some of those crazy people lined up around Target. I guess it took 10 minutes for them to just get into the store when it opened. They got some deals but it was funny to hear her say that she doesn’t think she will ever do that again. I did it once a long time ago and won’t do it again. Did you go out and hit the stores for the sales?
I am sticking with the colors that Bonnie picked out because I have never made a quilt with grey fabrics and I also love the other bold colors she has picked out. I would almost like to make another quilt at the same time with different color choices but…………..there are too many other projects I’m working on. Are you going to make this mystery quilt?
My blocks are all done, I really like the marbleized grey fabric I used. I bought it originally to make my second Nyan Cat quilt and then decided to make it from batiks. I had only bought a yard and a half so I went back to my local quilt store and was fortunate that there was still some on the bolt…I bought the rest.
I also bought a new ruler………….do you think I needed one? This is my absolute favorite ruler as it has a little lip that grabs my cutting board. I know I have had it for years and wasn’t sure if I could find it again…..I like the marking better on the original one……at least the markings that are left. Now I’m sure you know I won’t throw away the old one…..
Do you have favorite tools like that?
