Yeah, I'm Crazy

As if I didn't have enough ongoing quilting projects, I decided to join in on Quiltville's latest mystery "Easy Street." Bonnie promises it will be easy as the name suggests. I've completed three of Bonnie's mystery quilts and started on "Roll, Roll Cotton Boll," but didn't get very far. Those pieces and parts are shoved somewhere. And of course the instructions are long gone. They are published in a book, so there's that.

Bonnie has us spinning the seams of these four patches to create a tiny four patch on the back side. That will make quilting much easier. No big bump. A good quilting skill to learn. That's one of the things I love about quilting. There's always something new to learn. I decided to use my stash of batiks for this mystery. They've been neglected for a while.

I rarely win anything, but I did get lucky and win some pinsies from Karen over at the Selvage Blog. They're gorgeous! They even match my four patches. They are about 3" long and shimmer with beautiful beads. I may have to make a special pin cushion for these beauties.

Don't forget to leave a comment for the pattern giveaway.


  1. Your fabric for this Mystery is fantastic!!!!!
    Liebe Grüße Grit

  2. Love that batik! My favorite color. I needed 21 turquoise/teals for a project and bought 52, I loved them so ;)

  3. I considered using batiks myself, but ended up getting distracted by some other pretty fabrics. So I'll be especially interested in seeing how your quilt progresses. I have a feeling it will be gorgeous!

  4. Lucky you for winning the pinsies from Karen! They are so cool that I ordered a set (or two). Good luck with the mystery quilt. Love that shade of blue batik.

  5. That turquoise fabric is gorgeous. Looking forward to step 2.

  6. I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn

  7. I predict this will be a wonderful quilt!

  8. Can you give me directions on how to spin your center so the quilting lays flatter? Thanks.

    1. Here is a link to spinning those four patch seams. Easy!

  9. Can you give me directions on how to spin your center of that 4patch,
    so my quilts can lay flatter? Thanks.


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
