Easy Peasy

 Bonnie was right about this step would be easy. In less than 2 hours I was able to have what I needed cut and 1/4 of them completed. I would of tried to finish but I didn't start working on them until 6 pm. My brother and his family came for a few days from California and we had dinner at our parents. A couple of hours is good enough for now, I'll work on them tomorrow. You see my Christmas is over for now. My daughter and the grand boys will not be here this Christmas or any of my other daughters. I didn't realize this is how it would be, when my kids were little we always had Christmas with the family and grand parents and you think that is how things will always be. That's not always true, is it.
  Usually when I make a unit like this I will sew another stitch line at least a quarter inch from the first, so that way when I cut off the tip, I end up with a set of half square triangles

 They are 1 1/2 unfinished.
I should get 128 of these.


  1. Your 'Bonnie' blocks look good. I was SO HAPPY to have an easy week. Finished up yesterday, packed everything away and started cooking! I will be so ready for the next clue after Christmas. Have a great one!

  2. how funny is that, we had the same idea ;-) HAppy Christmas !

  3. Merry Christmas! I too was done in a couple hours, got to love that! :-) Happy Quilting!

  4. I do the same thing with dog-ears. I've got two shoeboxes getting stuffed with them - one Christmas, one non-Christmas. Once in a while, I'll use them on the back of that project, but usually I add them to my boxes. One day I'll have some really terrific play time with them!

    I'm sorry you don't have any visitors for Christmas itself. I hope you still have a peaceful, relaxing day and enjoy your time. Maybe some lovely movies and some stitching? :)

  5. I really like the colors you have chosen for Easy Street. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt. I haven't started it, I do need to print off the steps.

    Our children and grandkids are going to be visiting their in-laws this Christmas so we are also having a quiet few days. It just doesn't feel like Christmas without the excitement only little ones can bring.

    Merry Christmas.

  6. Cute! And I enjoy your chicken cam too! Funny...

  7. What a lovely variety of fabrics you have for this step. I too have a growing batch of half square triangles. Some day.... Merry Christmas!

  8. Ooh, they look like rows of beach huts! Gorgeous colours. Yes, most of our kids weren't home for Christmas this year and it was too quiet! Merry Christmas.

  9. Looking good--I too am enjoying this mystery!
