I got the borders sewn onto my Easy Street Quilt two nights ago, and last night I got the backing pieced. Here's how it looks --
I must apologize for the poor photo - but it's the middle of winter, so I can't (or won't) take it outside, and I don't get a lot of light in my house. That, plus the fact that I really have no place to lay it out, except on the bed! I debated whether or not to add borders. Usually I prefer my quilts without, but I wanted it to be a little bigger - to fit my queen sized bed for sure.
This will be the backing - it's just kind of folded and in a heap here.
It's cold this morning..... and supposed to be even colder tonight. I think they have predicted a low of -13 tonight, with wind chills in the 30 below range. Yikes!
So, Easy Street is ready to go to the quilter. And I am happy to have completed it. I think this is the largest quilt I have made, ever.... or at least in a very long time! I made a Thimbleberries Quilt back in the 90's that I know is queen-sized.
Everyone have a great day - stay warm!
