I contemplated for some time whether or not I was going to participate in this year's Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville. I completed last years mystery (Orca Bay) and managed to keep up with most of the steps but it was very labour intensive and knowing Bonnie's penchant for scrappy quilts with a gazillion pieces I wasn't sure I was up to it this year. However, Bonnie has assured us that this year's mystery is not going to be as intensive as in previous years (hence the name Easy Street!) so I decided to follow along.
My one concession is to make the quilt a bit smaller. I am going to make a wall hanging so will only need to make half the quantity that Bonnie posts.
I am also taking a leap of faith in relation to my colour choices. I once saw a beautiful paisley fabric that I fell in love with. It comprised browns, oranges and yellows together with a hint of blue. Now I know that might not sound good but I just loved it so I am going to try to emulate that with this mystery.
Here are my fabric selections:
I have decided to use the blue as my constant and use a solid off white as my background fabric.
I have completed Part 1 - 100 x 4-patches.
