Description

Went to Holly's Quilt Shop and bought 1.25 yard of gray, since most of my grays were silver/xmas or other exotic.
Started making 4-patches.  Never did the un-sewing the top of the seem for a 4-patch before, only for pinwheels.

I'am about half way through both the purple flying geese and the turquoise patches.  Whew!  that's a lot of patches.  OMG ! I think I made too many.

Current photo is my current guess.  It fits the numbers given, and has two different pseudo-blocks.

(earlier photo: Saw this layout on one of the linked blogs, but it does not fit the parameters.)

Have all the setting triangles pieced.  Now I'm working on the A patches, have 12 complete.

Mar. 17, 2013 - only two seams left.
Mar. 23, 2013 - top completed (no borders)

There is one yellow-green fabric that is really too yellow in natural light.  In artificial light, I think it is okay though.  If I made it again, I would not use so many kelly green fabrics, I would stick with the limes.

Aug.1, 2014 - Rocky Mountain Shop Hop. B-Right-On, Brighton, Colo.  Bought 1/2 yard of purple for inner border.  Would have bought 1.5 yard turquoise tone-on-tone floral but there was only  1.25 left.
Aug. 2, 2014 - Rocky Mountain Shop Hop. High Plains Quilter, Colorado Springs.  Bought 3 yards turquoise.  May make a pillow or two for the living room.  Spoke with some other hoppers who were buying some nice tan/red fabric for pillows and a cabin quilt.

* Idea: Maybe we should hang this over the white/green sofa in the family room!

Your blocks are looking good! Made too many? You could make a stack of mug rugs for those emergency Christmas pressies! The black on white fabric is fabulous.....It'll be fun picking out all the different piccies.

Sewnsew For Christmas I still have to sew about 6-inches of binding on Dana's quilt and all of the binding on the Pelican for MIL. It's coming too soon!

Sewnsew

Dzirin I agree with you, it is coming much too soon!

True

This looks wonderful...I keep reading people have made too many oh my but you will find a good use for them!

Gorgeous photos to make me imagine as I work on cutting the end of step 4. We are even using one of the same purple fabrics!

True

So this is not the "real" pattern? Whatever it is gorgeous those colors and fabrics will make a beautiful quilt!!

True No, we are still trying out layouts. I believe the green on-diagonal framework is correct, but it needs to be wider by one square than in the photo. And I think the geese are going to make sort of an arrow path - picking up on the "Street" in the name.

I love the black on white prints. Those were the hard ones for me to find a variety of. It is fun to see what everyone else found.

Rebecca

Love the colors you chose for this. One of my LQS has a section of black on white and white on black prints and it always catches my eye.

Dzirin

Rebecca Who would have thought that a mix of black/white prints could be used as a background?

Rebecca

Dzirin I know! And they work fantastically! I really am going to have to get more black and white prints - Every time I see a project with them I love the result.

You are so nice to make such a beautiful top in my favorite color groups - what a gorgeous quilt! Congratulations too on sticking to it through a mystery this complex. Can't wait to see how you quilt it.
