from the book Simple Circles and Quick Curves
As an alternative to starting new projects, I have been pulling out some of my UFOs that fit in with our monthly color. I don't have many UFOs that feature purple, but I did find my unfinished "Easy Street" top, Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt from 2012.
|"Easy Street" by Bonnie Hunter|
Bonnie's original quilt was very large, around 84" square before borders. I made fewer of the units each week and ended up with the center of my quilt measuring about 42" x 63". I have lots of extra parts left over and keep trying to figure out a way to use them in a pieced border. I am playing around with several ideas for the borders, and hope to have a finished top soon.
Check out all of the terrific scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

I understand what you mean about the RSC inspiring MORE new projects - I fight that fight myself! I didn't have any purple UFOs or I would've followed your plan this month. Looking forward to seeing how your pieced border turns out!ReplyDelete
I agree! I'm finding so many fun ways to use my scraps. And I don't seem to be making a dent in the supply. Love your circles, as always.ReplyDelete
I too am finding fun ways to use up my scraps and I'm working on getting my UFO's finished too. I continue to love your circles.ReplyDelete
Oh you are smart to do that! I keep getting pulled in by all the lovely blocks shown on Mister Linky!! Hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
I know what you mean, I have four RSC projects! LOL! Love your Easy St, beautiful!!ReplyDelete
A good idea! I'm trying to be disciplined with my scraps and just stick to what I decided at the start of the year. Your two projects are lovely!ReplyDelete
You've been busy the last couple of months. Your True Color blocks are looking fabulous. Congrats on all the finishes you've had the last few weeks. You've really made a dent in the UFO pile!ReplyDelete
I love the colors you chose for your Easy Street!ReplyDelete
I agree - it is very difficult to visit the blogs and not want to make all the different projects. Your ES is beautiful - can't wait to see how you finish your's off.ReplyDelete
Great idea finishing colour related UFO's! Hope you get those left over units to fit into a border.ReplyDelete
Your version of Easy Street is wonderful!!!ReplyDelete
I adore the Easy Street colours in your top........look forwards to seeing what you do with the surrounds : )ReplyDelete
I love the colors of your Easy Street. Yummm.ReplyDelete
Love the colors you chose for your Easy Street. Maybe you can piece a lot of the extra pieces into the backing.ReplyDelete
Finishing up UFOs is such a satisfying adventure. Hope your borders come together well.ReplyDelete
