Mystery quilt and a birthday!

So are any of you joining Bonnie Hunter in her latest mystery quilt, Easy Street?  This is my first mystery quilt, and I am really excited to be participating! 
 
My first blocks are finished... here is a glimpse of a few of them.  I made a few extra..... at last count, I had 198 of them.  We will use 192 of them in the quilt.
 
 
If you haven't already started, it's not too late.  Or, you could print off the directions and save them until the holidays are over and you are looking for a new project in January!
 
On another note, it's my dear husband's birthday today.  And perhaps you know my friend Julie.  It's Tractor Joe's birthday today, too!
In honor of DH's birthday, I tried a new recipe, Apple Cheesecake Crumb Pie.  I found the recipe here.  And it was delicious!
 
I should have taken a "before" pic.  Oh well....

I LIKE your black on white fabrics. All very unusual prints. Or prints I have not noticed before.
Oh my. What a yummy looking pie!

Awesome bag, your sister should be very happy with it. Do you ever sleep as you get so many projects done. I may need your help on a purse bag project that I had the pattern and material for a long time, but can't get into it.

That pie looks deeelicious! Your 4-patches are looking lovely. I especially love the fabric with the writing on it.

Maybe, someday, I too, will get to blogging the mystery. And all my other projects that were worked on recently.

I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn
