Easy Street Finished

My Easy Street quilt has been quilted and waiting for binding since the beginning of the month, and it's finally labeled, bound, finished. It is bigger than I thought it would be, 93" x 93. Two of the kids are already fighting over it, but I want to have it for a little while first. After I finish the Lazy Sunday, which has all the same colors plus orange and fuschia, then maybe I'll let them choose which one they'd like.

Not much progress has been made on Lazy Sunday, Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt from Quiltmaker magazine. I have three other big quilts that are close to being finished, all three UFO's, and I'd like to get those done first; so I'm making the half square triangle units from Lazy Sunday as leaders and enders for the other three projects. Next month I plan to work on it in earnest. The release of the next Quiltmaker containing the last part is right around the corner, I think.

The weather has been miserable for most of the spring, and this week has been cold and rainy again. The grass will be up to our knees before the ground dries out enough to get out and mow. We also have 9 cords of logs to cut, split, and stack; new cedar shingles to re-side the house with; and 12 new replacement windows to install, but the weather won't let us. It's gonna be a busy summer. Those sweet little bleeding hearts in the header are lovin' the weather though.
