Quilt Mystery...Easy Street!! by Bonnie Hunter
One thing comes to mind when I hear "Easy Street"...NEW ORLEANS...aka as "the Big Easy". However, Mardi Gras colors just didn't appeal to me right now. I wanted to do something in more subdued colors. Upon further thought of the name...the following came to mind.
My son loves the 'Band of Brothers' about the Easy Company of World War II. He can tell you which battle was fought, and where and loves Captain Winters and the men of Easy Company. These men are real life heroes.
So, 'Easy Street' has been renamed... 'Easy Company'.
The colors that I picked are Americana. I labeled each fabric as to Bonnie's colors.
I love my reds and navy blues. They just scream Americana to me! I am not necessarily fond of the particular camouflage fabric I have...but since I already own enough yardage...I am going to use it. I have several background fabrics in neutrals that have stars, baseballs and other things that can be considered 'American' in nature. There is even a piece with hot dogs at a picnic with tiny flags. How could I resist using it! The gold should tie everything as it will be a constant throughout the quilt.
Even though I am not able to start right away on the mystery...I plan to save the steps and start over the Christmas break.
Thank you Bonnie for yet another wonderful 'gift' this year! Your mysteries are the bomb!!
I will show my progress as I make some.
