Easy Street: Step 5

I'm racing a bit to keep up with Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt this time.  We celebrated Christmas on Saturday since it seemed like the best day to get everyone together this year.  The festivities coupled with a house full of family pushed sewing to the back shelf.

But, yesterday everyone went home or to other family and today was spent returning the house to it's usual arrangement, collecting ribbons and wrapping, running the washer constantly and doing my blocks for step five.  This was especially fun because I was able to use my new sewing machine - a gift from my husband!  I'll post more about that later, but for now, here are my new blocks:

There is much more variety of red than shows up in my picture.  In fact there are four very different fabrics there!  Photography is clearly not one of my strengths!  Anyway, I had fun with these blocks and they seemed to go together without a hitch.  Now I'm anxious for the next step!


  1. A NEW sewing machine ... You lucky lady! Merry Christmas :)

  2. Ooh, what a lovely present! The units look great. I hope we join some of them together with other ones this week. Merry Christmas.

    1. Thanks. I need to get busy this weekend on the final clues and see how those colors will turn out in the end. I'm having dun doing it all on the new machine!

  3. Lucky you! What a sweet hubby! I had an easy time with these blocks as well. I'm looking forward to our next clue. Hope you had a great Christmas!
