And it's quilted -- shown here on my design wall, trimmed up. Now to decide...narrow binding (mitred corners) or facing? Hmm....Time to let it percolate for a bit -- over the weekend, at the very least. And while I add the hand stitching. Perhaps then it will tell me how it wants to be finished. Oh, and the working title? "Trio". :-)
Here are a couple of close-ups for those who are interested. First, the green grassy area:
I'm really pleased with the way this turned out. I was going for a pattern that evokes blades of grass.
Next, the brown area -- soil, perhaps, but based on the photos, dead grasses:
Both the green and the brown will now be embellished by hand stitching.
After a few hours break, I was back at it again -- with the first clue for "Easy Street"...and managed to put together 28 four-patches (so far). The full-sized quilt calls for 192! I have plenty of the tan print, but we'll see how long the blue holds up. Who'd-a thunk such disparate prints would play together so nicely?
It's early, but I'm going to crawl into my bed with a cuppa and my book. G'night all!

Ah, the sampling has paid off!
Love the birches, I almost feel I can reach out and touch them. I see you do a binder also, I started after I printed out some of the Orca Bay instructions three times.
Love those colors together. I look forward to seeing how your quilt progresses.

A binder for Easy Street - why did I not think of that. Thanks for sharing your progress.
I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn
