Still on Easy Street




 
I had such a fun day strolling down Easy Street with my greys and reds.  It was a grey, dreary day in Pensacola, so I was happy to spend the day in my studio.  I'm not sure why I am so comfortable sometimes with repetition.  I tend to do a lot of quilting without patterns or directions, so there are times when it's nice to sew and not have to figure everything out!  And Bonnie makes it so easy!
I'm realizing I should have used EQ7 to test my color placement.  I'm really hoping that I shouldn't have switched the pink and red.  I will know soon enough.
I'm really loving the black and white prints.  I've never really collected these (which is why I didn't have enough) but they are so fun!!
Since I had to buy some, I'll have some left over to use in another project.
Loving this so far.  One more step and I get to start using the pink!!  I think I'm getting close.
Going to have lunch today with a blogger friend - how fun.
Have a great day,
Karen

I never laid my pieces out like that, but I'm LOVING the effect! And wouldn't they both (especially the ones with the reds) make a fantastic quilt on their own, in that setting!?! With the sashing, maybe in pink or black, as you have it spaced out a little! LOVE it! I think I need to play with my leftovers a bit and see what comes out! :o)

The layout in the second picture is pretty enough to sew together into its own quilt! I can't wait to see the rest of it!

Maybe some pieces of your new black and whites will show up in your friend's stash when it goes back to her?!

Have fun at lunch!
