Easy Street Is Finished!!!

I am so excited to have Easy Street finished! I really love this quilt, and so does DH, but it's being given as a gift. I loved this mystery, and I'm so glad I gave in and participated.

Now I'll be back to quilting on Thrice Broken Dishes. I'll be using stencils for the rest of the quilting on that, and I haven't used stencils for a while. I've always had pretty good results with stencils, so I'm not worried about that.

I have lots of quilts that need to be pieced, but I still have Double Delight in a pile, already pin-basted and waiting patiently for it's turn. Double Delight is the only Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt I didn't finish within a year. There are a lot of reasons for that. I changed the setting, made it bigger, and made pieced borders for it. It was also my first mystery quilt. At the time I started it, I didn't have the skills to quilt it myself. The thing is, I think the main reason it isn't finished is because it's for MY bed, and I keep putting quilts for others ahead of it . I now have the skills to finish the quilting myself, and after I finish quilting Thrice Broken Dishes, that will be the next one in queue to quilt. I will definitely be spending more time piecing after that. DS the Younger's wedding quilt is not even started and the wedding is in March!
