It will work

 I wasn't sure if I was going to like my choice of cheddar, so what I've done is put it up on the design wall to see if I could live with it. I believe I like it. I have had it up there for a couple of days now and I think I'll start sewing on it. 
But not tonight (Sunday), Downton Abby is on and I have been waiting for season 3 to start. And nothing can interfere with watching.

UPDATE 1-23-13
IT'S Done






I have started keeping better tally of my stash so now that it is a new year, I think I have a grasp on how to do it now. I wasn't very good at it the last year.
I've used 3 3/4 yards. and did buy 2 yards.
So that makes me 1 3/4 yards to the good.

I think I'm off to a good start


Easy Street Mystery Quilt
Thanks Bonnie

  27. I'm always amazed at how different a quilt can look by just changing the fabrics. The blue you chose looks very nice with the cheddar blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like your color choices and placements very much. Is the gray a solid, or is it that it reads as a solid in the pictures? Very Nice!
