Oh, YEA, the fun has begun! The Friday after Thanksgiving was THE big day! It signaled the release of Mystery Clue #1 for the Easy Street Quilt.
Last post, I gave you a sneek peak at my fabrics of choice. That photo, did not include the white, because at the time it was taken, the white had not been purchased.
Anyway, Friday was a VERY productive day and Clue #1 is complete. The following is a series of photos showing progress, starting again with the bulk fabrics.
When Bonnie Hunter did the Introduction for this Mystery Quilt, she chose fabrics in shades of Lime,Turquoise and Purple with Gray being the Constant and Black on White prints for the background. These just happen to be some of my favorite colors, so this time I chose to stay with her color way. The photo below is my stack of colors.

Once enough strips were cut to yield the needed units, they were sewed together....yes it was a big pile of strip units, AND this isn't even all of them!

So here they are, all 192 done and waiting their place in the mix.
