Celtic Solstice Link-Up, Week 3

 
It's Week Three of Bonnie's Mystery Quilt Linkup, but I have barely started Week Two.
 
I have a good excuse though - I've been binding my king-size version of Easy Street, all 440 inches of it!
 
 
And I have a helper!
 
 
I can't lay a quilt down without Daisy laying claim.  Once it's finished, I'll get some good pictures and show off the quilting.  I am so happy with the final result and I know my daughter and her husband will be too!
 
 
I seem to have a mental block making these, I have about a dozen right-hand sides, but have a hard time getting the left-hand side down pat.  I love the result though - 4 down, 46 to go.  I even used some of my precious Pukeko fabric from New Zealand, all the while humming "A Pukeko in a Ponga Tree". (My grandson got the New Zealand version of the 12 Days of Christmas in a package from his Kiwi grandparents, and we've had to sing that version ever since!)
 

I made some Triangle Buddies, a la Bonnie Hunter.  These are great for making bonus triangles for future projects.  I have no idea what I'll use them for, but I have an addiction to crumbs!

  1. I really like the fabric you've chosen to bind your Easy Street with. I still need to add borders to mine. I plan on giving my Easy Street to my daughter and her husband! You're doing great on your Celtic Solstice!

  2. I love your helper! I also have a helper, who could be Daisy's long lost brother. They look identical!

  3. Congrats on finishing Easy Street...mine still needs to be quilted. Also check the instructions for the chevrons. The longest side of the cream pieces should be sewn together. Hope you caught that in time!
