Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Easy Street - Part 2



I am linking up with Bonnie Hunter's site to show my progress on Easy Street and it is a lot of fun to see what everyone is using from their stash to make this quilt.  Mine will be of Christmas fabric, as I had some Christmas prints and yardage that I wanted to use, and here's my progress so far:
Part 1 (Green and White) and Part 2 (Red and White)




















I've made 50 of the flying geese for Step 2.  Here is a picture of the rest of Step 2 that will be completed this week.  My method of flying geese is the one with cutting off the excess fabric under the sky pieces, because I like to make tiny hst's with the parts I cut off.  I know, call me crazy, but I like little.




These two little ladies are in need of a Christmas quilt to share.  The hst's will finish at 1 inch, and it will be fun to choose a design for a small quilt for them.











Aren't they cute?

I'm following Bonnie's mystery quilt, also but haven't chosen any fabrics yet. I can't wait to see how your Christmas colored version progresses.

Those dolls are adorable! Just how little are they??!! Are the hst's, that are around them, only 1-1/2" inches.....they must be such cute little dolls.

I like your choice in colors and I do that too. I have a lot of little HST. I can wait to see how yours turn out.

Cathy, the dolls are tiny. They are 6" and 5" tall. They were in Rebecca's antique store in Shipshewana,IN and I couldn't resist them. The Santa hats were purchased in a variety store near the cabin - before I bought the dolls. 2 in a pack, and were so cute but I didn't know what I was going to do with them. When I started to take the pic - I thought of the 2 Santa hats, and they fit the dolls. I love serendipities!

It will be neat to see your quilt done in Christmas fabrics. It is always interesting to see the different fabric choices.

The little dolls are sweet. You aren't crazy for saving the triangles - I do the same thing. How can we throw those away when they are already cut out for us? ;)

Looking good! I'm intrigued by your Christmas fabrics and look forward to seeing it done. The little gals are so sweet. They will look even cuter with a little quilt.

They are sweet little girls, with darling hats. I'm sure they would love to have a tiny quilt.

Those Christmas fabrics are always so irresistible, I have put a few into my quilt, just to make use of them. I look forward to following your progress.
