I had most of the basic units done, but waited to join them all together in a block until I knew what the pattern was going to be. I auditioned at least 10 fabrics before choosing the maroon plaid in the end.When I finally chose the “right” fabric, there wasn’t enough of it! I had to go with three similar fabrics, which is all right with me. It makes it more interesting and totally more scrappy.
Then I had to audition borders. Can you tell I love plaid??The next decision I had to make was how to quilt it. Since it was so angular and had so many straight lines, I chose a curled feather, an all over pattern with pretty dense coverage.And here it is, all bound and ready for the bed. It is a king size quilt. The original pattern called for limes and teals and purples: http://withstringsattached.blogspot.com/2013/01/dwm-swap-results-and-easy-street.html You can look at other images if you do a Google search for Easy Street Quilt images. It’s fun to look at all the color combinations.
