Easy Street - Part 8

Well, I have made it to Part 8 of Easy Street.  This part has two types of blocks that alternate to form the final pattern in the quilt.  As I mentioned in the last post, there are 16 Block A's and 9 Block B's in this part.

Block A
Block B
I have worked on this part off and on since Thursday.  In the grand scheme of things, I have not made much progress.  Enough Block A's and Block B's have been made to complete row one and two of the quilt.  Since the quilt is on point this is not much progress.  I was having a difficult time sewing block after block together so I decided to make the blocks required for each row and then sew that row together.  We'll see how far I get this way.

Corner Added to Row One

Row One and Row Two
The scrappyness (is this a word?) of the quilt is giving me fits as I am trying to make sure all the blocks have different fabrics in their respective colors, and no two fabrics of each color end up together.  I know I should just give up, but I can't - thus these blocks are taking a long time to lay out.  Once satisfied with the layout of colors, it takes no time to sew them together.

I will continue to make blocks row by row.  We will see what progress I have made by this time next week.

Happy Quilting,

  2. Oh, Sandra, those are wonderful!!!!! I can't wait to see the finished product!

  3. I think you have a 4 patch turned in your block B pictured. Your quilt is looking great!

  4. I love the progress you have made on your Easy Street, but I'm getting concerned with comments about the difficulty of sewing all the blocks together. You are not the first to mention this. I have just started piecing some of the block components. Your colors are wonderful! I'll continue on until I hit the "roadblock" some participants have mentioned---then decide if I want to spend my time pursuing finishing it or giving it away as a UFO to our local craft resale shop. I don't like to struggle too long with quilt top or I lose interest in getting it done.
