"Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless."
This weekend, I spent some time on "Easy Street". Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, that is! :)
I'm moving much more slowly on it than other participants are. Many already have the tops completed! Whew! I'm finding the blocks going together slowly, though I did find a way to chain piece portions of them, getting the construction time for one "A" block down to about 25 minutes.
There are 4 different "units" required to finish this quilt: 4 corner units (done), 12 setting triangles (done), 16 "A" blocks (3 completed...number 4 is on the sewing machine as I write this), and 9 "B" blocks (0 completed).
Here are my 3 completed blocks, one corner unit and one setting triangle, so you get the gist of the quilt:
Several people on the Quiltville forum have commented about my "black" fabric, but that isn't black...it's a dark, chocolate brown color. Here's a close-up...
Hopefully, you can see the color a little better in the close-up. It's a very pretty, rich-looking brown! I don't have very many browns in my stash, so I had to purchase this one for this quilt...the only "new" fabric purchased for this quilt. All of the rest of the fabric came from my stash!
On Sunday, Andy & I went to see "Guilt Trip" with Barbra Steisand and Seth Rogan. What a HILARIOUS movie! I was literally laughing out loud in places! But there were some poignant places in it, too. All in all, a good movie! I think this movie was written for the both of them, since they both played their parts so well! :)
